A source at Louisville confirmed Harvey-Clemons' transfer plans to ESPN.com. His grandfather, Woodrow Clemons, told InsideTheVille.com that Harvey-Clemons "wants to stick with Coach Grantham and his defensive system."
Harvey-Clemons was dismissed from Georgia by coach Mark Richt in February following multiple violations of team rules -- issues that previously resulted in his serving suspensions for the 2013 opener against Clemson and the Gator Bowl loss to Nebraska.
Despite missing those two games, Harvey-Clemons ranked third on the team with 66 tackles. He also had 5.5 tackles for a loss, one interception and an SEC-high three fumble recoveries.
Grantham used the 6-foot-5 Harvey-Clemons as a traditional safety in his base 3-4 defensive scheme and in a hybrid linebacker-defensive back role called the "star" position when the Bulldogs moved to a nickel defensive.
"That star position that he's able to play safety and outside linebacker and cover the back coming out or able to rush the quarterback ... we kind of like that," Woodrow Clemons told InsideTheVille.com.
Grantham had coached at Georgia for four seasons before accepting a five-year deal in January to become defensive coordinator at Louisville under coach Bobby Petrino.
Harvey-Clemons, who was ranked by ESPN.com as the nation's No. 1 outside linebacker prospect and No. 17 overall recruit, picked Georgia in 2012. He told reporters late last fall that Louisville was actually his second choice behind Georgia at the time.

The Fighting Irish are exploring the prospect of playing Georgia in the future, though the dates remain to be determined, senior associate athletic director John Heisler told ESPN.com. CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler reported earlier Tuesday that the schools are working to finalize a home-and-home series for 2018-19.
Notre Dame's last two games against SEC schools came in postseason play, with Alabama beating the Irish in the Discover BCS National Championship after the 2012 season and LSU topping them in the Nokia Sugar Bowl after the 2006 campaign.
Notre Dame has not played an SEC school in the regular season since it beat Tennessee at home in 2005, the second of a home-and-home series between those programs.
Scheduling matters surrounding Notre Dame -- always a storyline, given its independent status -- became further complicated in 2012, when the school agreed to play five ACC schools per season in 2014 while placing all of its other sports in the league as full-time members. With that agreement, plus three annual rivalry games that the Irish have no intention of ending (Navy, Stanford and USC), the program's schedule has seen several casualties lately, most notably Michigan, whose trip to South Bend, Ind., on Sept. 6 will mark the last scheduled meeting between the storied programs.
In December, Notre Dame announced its full schedules for the 2014-16 seasons, so any future series could not be scheduled before 2017.
It comes as little surprise that Georgia is the SEC school the Irish are looking into scheduling, as the Bulldogs had been mentioned in previous discussions about scheduling SEC opponents. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has spoken about the possibility of Georgia before, and Bulldogs athletic director Greg McGarity told CBSSports.com last year that a home-and-home with the Irish would be "very intriguing."

Murray plans to drop back, roll out, plant his feet and throw, agent Pat Dye Jr. said.
"He looks great," Dye told the newspaper. "I mean, his body composition looks great, his knee looks great, he's moving around really well, he's not favoring it at all. His strength and conditioning coaches and his movement coaches down there say they've very rarely had anybody come through there with the kind of work ethic, drive and passion that he has.
"He not only will he be able to give them a representative workout at pro day, but he'll be able to do all his drops and roll-outs. He's not going to run the 40 or do any of the timed drills. There's no point in that. But he's throwing the ball great."
