Three Georgia Southern football players were arrested early Sunday morning and booked into Bulloch County Jail by Statesboro police on disorderly conduct charges.
Redshirt junior quarterback Ivan Corbin J.R., junior running back J.D. King and redshirt sophomore running back Logan Wright were arrested between 3:47 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Sunday morning for the misdemeanor charges. According to the incident report, the three players were involved in a “physical confrontation” along with two other individuals near Paulson Stadium.
Corbin, King and Wright were later released.
“We are aware of the situation and it will be dealt with internally,” head football coach Chad Lunsford said in an email. “We are disappointed with the decisions that were made and hopefully we can use it as a learning experience for our entire team as we move forward.”
Corbin is expected to compete for the backup quarterback position this season. King is a transfer running back from Oklahoma State, making him ineligible for the 2019 season. Wright rushed for 308 yards and three touchdowns in 2018 and is expected to be a starting running back in 2019.
