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.

After the whole Reggie Bush drama, The NCAA is trying to lockdown anything it can. The are on a witch hunt to find anyone and everyone who may be breaking the rules. Last year after Dez Bryant was ruled ineligible for dealing with Prime Time they've gotten fed up with the whole "what you can't see won't hurt"

Regardless AJ Green even if suspended or not, is a top WR in next yrs draft with Julio Jones and maybe Jon Baldwin at Pitt. Nothing should happen with Green though.

@dwggirl--Don't get your red panties in such a wad. Im not talking about winning games. Im talking about ethics (or lack there of) that is finally catching up with your "team". If you want to get into "winning" (which is the ONLY thing you leach fans want to talk about). When is the last time you won a national championship? 1983?? Oh..you don know b/c you're too busy worshiping spray tanned Reverend Richt to see the big picture.

NIkro -
How do you even know if I WEAR panties?? Your last post completely nonsensical. You bring winning into the argument... What is it about, if not winning? Do we applaud and award trophies and huge $$$ bonuses to coaches who don't win? NO. Programs are built on wins. Wins attract recruits. Wins attract alumni money. That money pays for coaches like Richt. So what if he is orange on the outside?? Your argument about ethics, or a lack thereof, has nothing, NOTHING, to do with Richt. He is one of the most ethical coaches in the sport. Probably in all sports period. Next time you want to talk some smack, do your homework, maybe write up a rough draft, have someone edit for content and valid point-making, and THEN post it.
Don't be bitter because y'all never win, and then tell me wins don't matter. Boo hoo. Go play on your calculator.

Forgot a couple of things... First off, learn to read. D A W G G R L. Check it. Secondly, even though it was a long time ago, our last national title was 1980. Fight facts with facts my friend. Did you even get an education at Tech, or did your daddy? Not looking good for you here.
Get off your iphone and continue sitting in ATL traffic, picking your nose, looking like the pathetic idiot you are.

Appears that Austin at UNC at Chapel Hill is the ring leader. I wish TMZ would get on the case and uncover the "real" story and dirt behind those arrogant, blue-blooded Tarheels who think they are untouchable and above the law.

I watched A J play HS football for four years and know his relatives. He has great parents and has been reared well. I would doubt he would be involved in anything illegal had he known that this bash was illegal. I hope it isn't true as he has a great future ahead of him. Never heard of him? You will. He is being compared to Jerry Rice. He will play on Sundays.
