ATHENS - Another player who left Georgia under bad circumstances will end up at a rival SEC school.
Ty Flournoy-Smith, who spent the 2012 season at Georgia before transferring, committed to sign with Alabama, per multiple reports.
Flournoy-Smith, a Colquitt County native, played sparingly for Georgia in 2012, but was the third tight end behind Arthur Lynch and Jay Rome. However he ran into off-field trouble twice: First he was arrested for filing a false police report. Then he and teammate Josh Harvey-Clemons had their room searched by UGA police after the smell of marijuana was reported by a dorm resident assistant. Neither was arrested, but Harvey-Clemons was suspended one game. Flournoy-Smith transferred to Georgia Military College.
Technically, Flournoy-Smith was not dismissed.
"He came to my office and when we were done talking he thought it was in his best interest to transfer out," head coach Mark Richt said last year. "So that's kind of where I'm going to leave it right there."
Flournoy-Smith appeared in eight games in 2012, mostly on special teams, and did not catch a pass.
