Georgia freshman K.D. Johnson is cleared to play ahead of Auburn matchup

January 11, 2021

After sitting out the first 10 games of the season, Georgia basketball freshman guard K.D. Johnson has been cleared by the NCAA. Johnson was kept out of games due to a certification eligibility issue.

This is good news for the Bulldogs, as they are in the midst of a three-game losing skid to start SEC play. Johnson’s shooting and playmaking abilities will be a welcome sight for a Georgia team that is struggling to win games. 

Georgia just suffered a blowout loss to Arkansas, getting downed 99-69, and coach Tom Crean mentioned that the level of effort was a big contributor to their downfall in that contest. 

Johnson will now join the team ahead of their matchup against Auburn on Wednesday, and he just might provide a spark they need. His role is yet to be determined, but Crean has spoken highly of him in the past. 

Johnson was Georgia’s top-rated recruit in the 2020 class, and the Bulldogs will finally get to see his talents put to use in games.
