Georgia Paid Fred Taylor $50,000, as He Reveals in a News Interview

As part of Georgia’s recruiting effort, Fred Taylor claimed that the school paid him money, which was taken before he transferred to Florida.

Asked about allegations that Georgia gave him a duffel bag containing between $30,000 and $50,000 to pledge to the Bulldogs instead of the Gators on the “Bussin’ with the Boys” podcast, former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Taylor Lewan and Will Compton confirmed that the claim was true.

The only thing this narrative needs to be fixed, according to Taylor? Not in a duffel bag, either.

According to him, it was somewhere about $50,000, but he couldn’t give an exact figure.

In spite of this, Taylor enrolled at Florida and went on to win a national championship in 1996 with 31 rushing touchdowns. He spent 11 seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars before retiring with the New England Patriots.

It would have been a tremendous scandal if Taylor had made these claims about Georgia’s NCAA violations 10 or 15 years ago. The reality is that this happened far more often than anyone in college football cares to admit.
