From a pure dramatic perspective, there's only one possible outcome funnier than the possibility of staffers being involved in stealing from Georgia football players' lockers during "faculty appreciation day," and wouldn't you know it, we've hit upon the very thing: The bandits who made off with over $1,000 worth of electronic devices from the Dawgs' locker room were UGA football recruits.
Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald is reporting this morning that warrants have been issued for high school football standouts Deion Bonner, Marquise Hawkins, and another football prospect whose name is being withheld because of his status as a juvenile. All three attend Carver High in Columbus. The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer's Seth Emerson adds, "The warrants were signed on Friday and set to be acted on today."
We can imagine the future of these three between the hedges is not a bright one, but Columbus, we feel compelled to note, is located on the Georgia-Alabama border, less than an hour's drive from Auburn University. Is it something in the water down here?
