Football recruit suspected in theft at UGA dorm

iPhone theft

Back in early April of 2011, three football recruits were accused of stealing several items, including iPhones and iPods, from the lockers of several Georgia football players during what was described as an open-house event on the campus.

Unbelievably, three years later, a similar incident has occurred… at the same school no less.

According to Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald, an unnamed football recruit is the prime suspect in the burglary of an UGA dorm. The recruit was on the campus attending an UGA football camp and staying with two current Bulldog football players..

Because the player is a juvenile and lives out of state, he likely won’t face extradition or arrest.

From the Banner-Herald:

Two female Georgia athletes — one a gymnast and the other a soccer player — reported to a residence assistant that an unknown black male entered their Busbee Hall suite at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday and took an iPhone5 and a wallet with two credit cards in it, according to a police incident report. Police were dispatched soon after that morning to meet with the R.A. The victims stated the main entry door to the suite and their respective bedroom doors were unlocked.

UGA police chief Jimmy Williamson told the paper he “feel[s] very confident saying [the football recruit is] our responsible party.”  The sad part is, it doesn’t appear the unnamed recruit will be held responsible for his alleged actions.

Weird, weird story.

    Son,
    I think you can forget about attending UGA in the future. whoever the stupid kid was, I hope he doesn’t think that those in the college fraternity of coaches will not hear about it. Does FCS sound like his next stop or maybe even JUCO?

    I’m sure this was just part of his initiation into becoming a UGA football player.

    If you can’t do the crime, you won’t get the playing time

    He was attending DAWG night. A bunch of kids get invites to that camp, and a majority of them will not play for UGA, and maybe even another SEC school. Obviously your ignorance about the disciplinary program at UGA is not too great. As the article mentioned, three players from high school were caught before and none of those three play for UGA at this time.

    Ignorance is NOT too great?? Huh?

    He would go on full scholarship with URB at TOSU!!

    The un named recruit has actually committed to South Carolina and fits in perfectly with the program who’s athletes have been charged with more felonies over the last five years then any other in the FCS. You know, where “you have to try to fail” and have an alcoholic blowhard for a HC with zero discipline.

    Something smells fishy here. Why is a recruit in a girls dorm? How did he find his way around or was he just out pulling on doors to see which one he could gain access to?

    Anyhoo, I agree with Mr. Taylor, this is a weird story. Just seems some details are missing…

    If this happened at Auburn Malzahn would’ve offered him on the spot.

    jonkybon, could you please provide a few examples of South Carolina players getting felonies in the past 5 years? I live in Columbia and I can’t even think of any off the top of my head, given the nature of college football today I am probably forgetting one or two, but I would be shocked if South Carolina indeed leads the ‘FCS’ in felonies..I believe you meant FBS, but you can go ahead and throw FCS in there while you’re making things up.

    Funny coming from an FSU fan…. I’m pretty sure you had a player “Suspected” of doing something, and oh you guys defended him tooth and nail.

    Now I know no details of this story other that what was written, but one obvious detail that pops out is they don’t know who did this.

    I could honestly care less about Georgia football, just food for thought.

    As sperrier has said. Get ga early because half the team is criminals and will be on suspension. One caught strangling a girl in his room and now more thefts…hunker down you hairy thief’s,

    for all you morons that keep bringing up Cam Newton..go to this link to see what an Auburn Man is really like..http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2014/06/17/4984959/carolina-panthers-cam-newton-make.html

    He’ll fit right in at another SEC school….like Auburn. They are probably already salivating over this kid after hearing this.

    the future auburn QB jokes really write themselves these days.

    @chadfa

    The worst was three or 4 years ago Angelo Watley was arrested on five counts of terrorism. While still a member of the Gamecock team and awaiting trial, he was arrested on three counts of B&E

    Moe Thompson and Kevin Mainord were arrested for breaking into multiple girls dorms, while the girls were sleeping and steeling jewelry, TV’s, comps, etc.

    David Smith was arrested for B&E

    Syvelle Newton, Freddy Saint-Something and Woodly Telfort for stealing computers and other electronics from the University

    Remember Demetrius Summers and “Fun and Gun”?

    Speaking of guns, Kenny Miles on shooting himself and filing a false police report to cover his drug business

    Drugs? How about the multiple arrests of Victor Hamptom. I believe the only one that was a felony was the assault on a Police Officer.

    Then there is that turd in SF, Culliver with his brass knuckles.

    These are just the felonies I can remember off the top of my head and don’t include recruits that went to jail before Slurrier actually had them on a LOI.

    I’m sorry. That link took me to a story about an athlete stealing another student’s laptop and stealing another student’s termpaper and turning it in as his. Oh and getting kicked out of school by the academic committee. Is that the article you meant to link?

    PS @ Chadfa

    I don’t make anything up. The only thing I ever posted that I couldn’t prove was from a briefing I got in the Army about Mandela. I thought I read in a court transcript that he engaged in putting tires filled with gasoline over the heads of enemies and setting them on fire. It was not from a court transcript and therefore non reproducable.

    If you had any balls or intgrity, you would now apologize for both making this personal and not having a clue. All here knows the moral fiber of Cock lovers.
