  Shortly after the New Orleans Bowl went final, true senior defensive end Raymond Johnson III tweeted that he would forego his extra season of eligibility and enter the 2021 NFL draft. Johnson is the first GS defensive lineman in a while who could find his way onto an NFL roster after a season with 38 tackles and five sacks to earn All-Sun Belt first-team honors. The defensive lineman's success is a positive sign for his position coach Victor Cabral, who just finished up his third season in the current role. Cabral should return the rest of his defensive line in 2021, led by nose tackle C.J. Wright and defensive ends Justin Ellis and Dillon Springer. - Savannah Morning News

  Four Georgia Southern football players have been suspended from the team following their arrests by the Statesboro Police Department on Monday and Tuesday on drug-related charges. "Georgia Southern football players Chris Harris Jr., Wesley Kennedy III, Ephraim Kitchen Jr. and CJ Wright have been suspended indefinitely for violations of athletics department policies," the athletic department announced late Tuesday afternoon in a statement. "There will be no further comment on the matter at this time."

On Tuesday, Harris, a senior inside linebacker from Savannah, was arrested on one charge of possession of a controlled substance, a felony, according to Bulloch County Jail records. Kitchen, a sixth-year cornerback from Batesville, Mississippi, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana, according to jail records. Bond was set for $2,000 for Kitchen, and $7,500 for Harris. Kitchen was released bond on bond on Tuesday, and Harris was released on bond later Tuesday. - Savannah Morning News
