U. of Georgia Investigates Football Star

7/21/2010 7:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the University of Georgia is investigating whether football star A.J. Green partied on South Beach at the same bash that's launched investigations at three other colleges.

A source closely connected to Georgia's athletic department tells TMZ the wide receiver allegedly attended a party at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami on Memorial Day weekend.  Partying alone isn't a crime under NCAA rules -- Green is 21 years old -- but if someone (like an agent or financial advisor) paid for anything related to Green's trip ... that could be a violation.

We're told a member of the coaching staff spoke directly to Green to ask him about the party -- and he denied being in Miami at all that weekend.

According to SI.com the NCAA plans to look into sports agent violations at UGA. It's unclear if Green is part of that investigation.

The University's Compliance Department told TMZ on Tuesday, "This is the first we've heard of anything involving A.J. Green."

In recent weeks, there have been reports that three other schools -- South Carolina, North Carolina, and Alabama -- are also investigating athletes for attending the same Miami party.

Never heard of the guy? Not a football fan? AJ Green is by most experts a top 5 NFL pick. That seems fairly relative.

AJ Green has not developed a cure for cancer but he is most likely the #1 wide receiver in college football & will probably be the first receiver taken in the NFL draft.

Thank you Ron... I am hoping AJ has a little more class than the actual rule-breakers and knows he doesn't have to date the agents pre-draft. He WILL be a top 5 pick. As for you Nikro, SUCK IT. The Jackets have had a bad couple of DECADES. So you won two or three games in the last 15 years... You're still in the ACC... WHO CARES?!?!
GOOOOOOO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!

Oh yes... J12? If you don't care about the SEC, UGA, or it's players. why did you comment? Quit being an irrelevant a**hole and go read about Lindsay in "prison". That should get you hard.

AJ Green was in his hometown of Summerville, SC the weekend this party in Miami took place. There are even pictures on his Facebook page of him in Summerville that weekend.

This is a non-story, but typical of TMZ to try to make something sensational where there isn't a story at all.
