Draft Scout Justin Scott-Wesley News
08/04/14 - Richt on return of WR Scott-Wesley: 'We think it'll be this season'...August has already been terribly unkind to Georgia fans hoping for good news on their oft-injured wide receiving corps. The Bulldogs announced early Friday that Malcolm Mitchell had undergone arthroscopic surgery after injuring his knee during workouts earlier this week, with no timetable yet set for this return. And when discussing junior wideout Justin Scott-Wesley later in the day, the news offered by Mark Richt wasn't much better. I'm not sure when he's going to be able to play a game of football for us, Richt said of Scott-Wesley, per Dawgs247. We think it'll be this season, and he's moving along. He didn't move along quite as quick as some of the others.
The "others" include running back Keith Marshall, who tore his ACL in the same game against Tennessee last October in which Scott-Wesley tore his. But while Marshall is set to play in the season opener against Clemson, Scott-Wesley will join Mitchell in the file folder of Bulldogs whose return is still very much TBD. At the time of his injury, Scott-Wesley was the Bulldogs' second-leading receiver for 2013, with 16 catches for 311 yards. Further complicating matters is Scott-Wesley's post-injury arrest last fall on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge, one that's expected to cost him at least a game's suspension. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
11/02/13 - UGA's Justin Scott-Wesley cited for marijuana possession...After tearing his ACL in early October, Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley won't be playing again for the Bulldogs until 2014 at the earliest. But when he does, he might be facing a suspension after being arrested on a possession of marijuana charge Thursday. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other outlets reported Friday that a campus police officer found a glass pipe and a marijuana "grinder" with residue of the drug during a search of Scott-Wesley's dorm room late Wednesday night. A warrant for Scott-Wesley's arrest was issued Thursday, and the sophomore from Camilla, Ga. turned himself in Thursday afternoon. Scott-Wesley was charged with possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of a "drug object," both misdemeanors.
Per the Macon Telegraph, a female was present with Scott-Wesley when an officer traced the smell of marijuana to his dorm room, but was cleared of any wrongdoing. Scott-Wesley initially declined to allow the officer to search the room, but eventually relented. In addition to the paraphernalia, the Telegraph reported the officer recovered "two small red Ziplog baggies containing what proved to be pot." Scott-Wesley was the Bulldogs' second-leading receiver at the time of his injury (and still is), with 16 catches for 311 yards on the season. Violations of the Georgia athletic department's policy on marijuana usage (as in the case of defender Josh Harvey-Clemons) require a mandatory suspension. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
10/06/13 - Georgia running back Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligaments in their right knees Saturday during a 34-31 overtime victory at Tennessee. Bulldogs coach Mark Richt confirmed the severity of their injuries at a Sunday afternoon teleconference.
"It's sad for our players," Richt said. "You see them work so hard to get in position to play for Georgia, realize their dreams to play in big games like that, try to win championships and all that. (You see) how much work they put in and how hard they play for you and work and practice for you in the offseason and all that, and one play like that and it's taken away from them. It's heartbreaking." Marshall had rushed for 246 yards and one touchdown on 56 attempts this season. Scott-Wesley had 16 catches for 311 yards and two touchdowns. - AP Sports
