Georgia offensive lineman Clay Webb is one of three defendants named in a federal bullying lawsuit stemming from Webb’s time at Oxford High School in Alabama, according to a report from Al.com’s Lily Jackson,
According to the report, the lawsuit alleges that Webb, along with two other defendants encouraged, the plaintiff to unknowingly drink from a Powerade bottle that contained Webb’s semen.
DawgNation has reached out to Georgia for a comment on that matter and they have issued a statement.
“While we cannot comment on this individual student matter, we review allegations of misconduct by our student-athletes and hold accountable those that do not meet our expectations,” the University of Georgia Athletic Association said in a statement.
Per the report, the plaintiff is suing for compensatory and punitive damages. The alleged incident is said to have occurred in October of 2018, which was Webb’s senior season. After the alleged incident, word spread throughout the school of what had allegedly occurred, and the plaintiff faced further bullying which included “various homophobic slurs and sexually explicit insults by classmates and members of the football team, according to the complaint.”
Webb signed with Georgia as a 5-star prospect in December of 2018 as a part of Georgia’s 2019 signing class. He was the No. 1 ranked center in the country and the No. 2 overall prospect in the state of Alabama.
Webb played in only two games in his freshman season at Georgia, meaning he would be eligible for a redshirt.
