Another chapter seems to be writing itself for Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick’s career in Athens. The troubled alum of Mays High in Atlanta remains with the team after a rough end to 2017. Patrick attended classes at the University last spring and hopes to re-earn key playing time this fall.
Patrick entered a treatment facility in Augusta in mid-December of 2017 as part of an deal made with Athens-Clarke County as a result of a probation violation for a marijuana arrest earlier that year.
When speaking to the press on Friday about Patrick, head coach Kirby Smart said:
“He’s done everything we’ve asked him to do. I’m proud of the progress he’s made.”
“All decisions will be handled internally,” Smart added.
Nothing big seems to have changed Patrick’s status since the spring and it is likely he will suit up a few times this season.
We will provide more updates on Patrick if anything happens before Austin Peay travels to Athens September 1st.
