Ex-Dawg walks on past USC

The junior college coach of former Georgia defensive end Michael Lemon said he does not expect Lemon to end up at South Carolina.

The Gamecocks have given Lemon an opportunity to walk on, but Georgia Military College coach Bert Williams said Monday that Lemon has a scholarship offer from a BCS-conference school. Williams would not identify the school, but he said it is not in the SEC.

Georgia coach Mark Richt dismissed Lemon from the team in July after he was charged with felony battery for allegedly punching another student in the face five times during an altercation.

Williams said Lemon did not sign last week because the interested school wanted him to wait until his legal issues were resolved, which Williams expects to happen soon.

“I would say there’s very little chance that Lemon would end up in Columbia,” Williams said.

Williams said he had no disciplinary problems with Lemon at Georgia Military.
