The investigation of Georgia State football player Kelton Hill has been turned over to the Fulton County District Attorney, according to Carlton Mullis, Georgia State University Deputy Chief of Police.
Hill was arrested and charged with forcible entry related to a burglary by campus police on June 22.
Hill allegedly entered the University Lofts room of a student through an unlocked window and stole a laptop valued at $1,300 on June 17.
Hill, who played at Lithia Springs, was projected to be the Panthers’ starting quarterback this season. He led the team with 426 rushing yards as a back-up last season. He also rushed for three touchdowns. He completed five passes for 64 yards.
The Panthers are scheduled to begin practice on Aug. 4 and are very thin at quarterback because Drew Little, last year’s starter, has been suspended for the first four games of the season for breaking team rules.Hill was expected to be challenged by Bo Schlechter and true freshman Ben McLane, formerly of Brookwood High.
The Panthers will play Clark Atlanta at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 2 at the Georgia Dome to open the season.
