Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield was arrested early Monday morning on misdemeanor marijuana charges, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Kirby Smart is reportedly aware of the arrest, which came at 3:19 a.m. Monday morning, though no official statement has been released by the university. Per the AJC, Holyfield, the son of boxing legend Evander Holyfield, was charged with possession and use of drug related objects and possession of less than one ounce of marijuana. Georgia's school drug policy calls for a one-game suspension for a marijuana arrest, so it's possible that the promising back with a legendary name will miss some time this fall. Holyfield committed to Georgia in the 2016 recruiting class as a four-star prospect from Atlanta's Woodward Academy, rated as one of No. 18 player in the state. He played in just three games last season at a crowded position for the Bulldogs, but once Nick Chubb and Sony Michel have exhausted their eligibility, he should have an opportunity to break out in the future.
