ATHENS — Georgia kicker Rodrigo Blankenship posted a statement Thursday night that tried to clear the air about the controversy over whether he should be awarded a scholarship.

The statement, posted at midnight on Thursday, apologized for his father’s “interactions” with the media this season, saying they came without his knowledge. Blankenship also steered clear of saying whether he agreed or not that he deserved to be put on scholarship.
