UGA’s No. 1 football commitment faces possible 30-day suspension for alleged school violation

Christian LeMay speaks (AJC's Chip Towers)

UGA’s No. 1 football commitment could miss more than half of his senior season.

Christian LeMay of Matthews, N.C., who is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 quarterback by Scout, is accused of breaking an unspecified code of conduct rule at school and faces a possible an out-of-school suspension for up to 30 days, according to the Charlotte Observer. LeMay has a hearing on Monday with school officials.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound LeMay committed to UGA over Clemson, Notre Dame, Auburn and Texas A&M. He is the one of UGA’s 11 commitments for its 2011 recruiting class that is not from the state of Georgia.

LeMay earned North Carolina player of the year honors last season after leading Butler High School to a 15-0 record and the 4A state championship. He completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 3,296 yards, 44 touchdowns and two interceptions last season.

Neither LeMay or his father Stacy could be reached for comment. However, earlier this week, Stacy told the AJC’s Chip Towers via text message, “Christian will be attending Georgia’s minicamp this Saturday, along with his two brothers Uriah and Benjamin. That day will also be Christian’s 18th birthday. He is very excited to spend his birthday at UGA.”

He is not going to get suspended for 30 days. He didn’t commit a crime or anything bad. He got caught with a female student on school grounds. Yes, it’s bad but it’s not like he held a gun at someone’s head. Even if he does get a 30 suspension, he could just transfer and it wouldn’t follow him. UGA is looking into this, but it will not cause them to pull his scholarship.

Apparently it is a serious misconduct with another student on the school premises. I think fans can cancel the anointment process started last month when many said that he was another Tim Tebow in terms of his personal integrity and character.

At UGA, the football players have relationship with woman. At Tech, we have no women!

Better to learn this now than later. On the one hand, it could be an isolated incident due to immaturity. If thats the case, most of us have probably been there.

However, if this is something that is indicative of his character and a pattern develops he may be better suited to go somewhere else. After what USC got yesterday I don’t want even the hint of impropriety; whether it be realted to coaches, players or boosters.

Selfishly speaking I hope it is the former but, having lived through the Jan Kemp mess, I don’t ever want to experience anything remotely close to that again. Different situations I know, but bad for our beloved UGA.

Playing in the SEC provides enough on field problems and challenges. I want those to be restricted to the athletic side of things. If we get beat, we get beat. The other kinds of problems/distactions are best kept to someone else’s campus.

Very laughable coming from a thUGA fan. You should use your prisoners–er football team–to clean up the messes ya’ll leave after football games.

If Hall committed a crime, he needs to be punished, point blank.

That might even be a record for the “Dawgs”!! He hasn’t even been one of them for a couple of weeks and already suspended!! But I’m sure he’s just a swell, perfect, Christian young boy…Not!!

Just saying, GT fans aren’t really in any kind of position to say anything about kids getting into trouble considering examples like Hall, the academic cheating scandal and Reuben Houston.

You sound like you’re at least able to admit as much so my post isn’t really directed at you.

he should transfer don’t need to lose any playing time on the field. Experience is vital when progressing to the college level. He could start at any othe high school in the u.s.

NO crime was committed. Christian was caught “making out” with a female on school property. That is a violation of the school’s conduct policy – Public Display of Affection – and is punishable by up to a 30 suspension.

Hm… As a dog fan that has closely followed the 2011 recruiting class for UGA, I can’t help but to say I’m dissappointed. Lemay’s class act as a “christian” may just be a front. However, I’m definitely jumping the gun on the issue. Does anyone have a good source stating what he did?

Once again…Christianity “in someone’s false words” equaling total hypocrisy in “someone’s real life”. I just hope the sex “on campus” was worth it. Boy, the kid might be good at football. But he’s not very bright off the field. Ever heard of “parking” or “getting it on” at the drive in, Christian?

Character is never an issue when uga recruits. As you can read here, georgia fans don’t care about character either. Some things never change.

Just another fantastic christian to commit to Saint Richts school for felons. Just ask Jan Kemp, you get a degree and a prison release the same day. Uga just reported their annual double figure secondary violations and now your #1 recruit gets suspended. HA HA!

Do you really want to compare indiscretions between GT & UGA? The margin would be more than the difference in salaries for GT grads & UGA grads!

JBD,

I have a colleague up in NC and apparently he cited a source stating he got caught having sex on school campus. He’s working on getting me the link but he’s on his blackberry.

It makes sense, sex is a pretty rough suspension. If it was “making” as suggested above that would not fit. I got caught making out at my high school a few years ago and all I got was 1 day in school suspension. 30 days is a pretty serious offense and making out does not lead to that. Hell you can get into a fight and beat the piss out of someone and only get 3 days out of school suspension or a week. Not 30 days.

This kid had good character before he showed up at thUGA. What are thUGA doing to these kids? These very high character kids that show up never having been in trouble and then before you know it thUGA has taught them the thUGA way. Recruits need to think about just what kind of education they will be receiving before they go there. If you want to learn how to rob banks, go to thUGA. If you want a real education, choose another school.
