ATHENS — Since word got out last month that the NCAA’s investigation of possible improper dealings between players and agents had reached Georgia, A.J. Green has declined comment on the matter except to say he has never been to Miami, scene of an agent-affiliated party that triggered the probe at several schools.
After practice Friday, Green said he looks forward to saying more.
“I hope it’s coming up soon,” he said. “It should be sometime next week, or whenever. I don’t know.”
He said the issue has “not at all” been a distraction.
On another topic, Georgia’s star wide receiver said he is focused on making the most of his junior season, not on the widespread expectation that he’ll enter next year’s NFL draft.
“You just can’t get caught up in the hype and that kind of stuff,” Green said. “You’re still in college; you’ve still got another year. There’s nothing like college. When you get in that real world, it’s nothing but business. Around here . . . you can have fun hanging around with your friends. I’m just going to take it day-by-day and game-by-game and get better each day.”
Now, something you might not know about Green: He revealed that he was on his elementary school’s “juggling team.”
“I guess,” he said, “that helped with my hand-eye coordination a lot.”
Green said he picked up the skill in second grade.
“I can juggle, like, four balls,” he said. “I can juggle everything –- pens, bowling pins, whatever.”
Green also revealed that he started riding a unicycle in fourth grade.
So now you know.
