The Georgia basketball team got some much needed good news on Monday as freshman guard K.D. Johnson announced on Instagram that he is eligible to return for the Bulldogs.
Johnson did not play in Georgia’s first 10 games due to an academics issue.
Bulldog basketball coach Tom Crean issued the following statement: “We’re extremely excited to have K.D. eligible. Probably the only people more excited than me are K.D. and his mother, Jada. K.D. has been with us every day in workouts and practices since last summer and has been incredibly patient and mature throughout this process. I would like to thank NCAA for their efforts as we worked to reach this resolution.”
The Bulldogs, still winless after three games in the Southeastern Conference, will take on the Auburn Tigers tomorrow night. Tipoff is set for 7 o’clock Wednesday in UGA’s Stegeman Coliseum.
