How Arik Gilbert, Derion Kendrick departures impact Georgia’s two biggest games

The two biggest games on Georgia’s 2021 schedule are against Clemson and Florida. The former figures to be a top-5 matchup between College Football Playoff contenders. The latter is Georgia’s biggest rival where the winner of the game has gone on to represent the SEC East in the SEC championship game in each of the past six seasons.

Both Florida and Clemson though recently saw high-profile players depart their program. Clemson dismissed multi-year starter and All-ACC cornerback Derion Kendrick from the team. Head coach Dabo Swinney confirmed the news on Monday during a press conference with reporters.

“Really not much to say about that other than he’s not with us anymore, but also to say I love D.K.,” Swinney said. “Man, he’s a young man that I’ve always loved as a football player. He’s got a really good heart. He’s never been a disrespectful young man or anything like that. Just sometimes there just needs to be a change.”
