Georgia likely to lose entire recruiting class

July 20, 2002


— Unless Wayne Arnold gets his high school diploma before classes start at Georgia on Aug. 19, all four of Jim Harrick's recruits for this year will have failed to meet qualifying standards.

Since Harrick took over coaching duties in 1999, nine players have failed to qualify to play for the Bulldogs after signing national letters of intent.

Arnold had to complete two classes in summer school to get his high school diploma, but he exceeded the number of absences allowed in a social studies class and was automatically dropped, said David Boyd, Arnold's coach at Berkmar High School.
