One of Georgia’s most celebrated recruits might be in trouble.
Christian LeMay, the nation’s No. 2 ranked quarterback according to Scout.com, is facing suspension at his high school in Charlotte and could miss up to half of the 2010 season, according to a report in the Charlotte Observer.
The report said LeMay is, “accused of breaking a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ code of conduct rule, which could bring an out-of-school suspension that could last up to 30 days.”
He has a hearing scheduled for Monday at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ East Learning Center.
It’s not known if Georgia coach Mark Richt is aware of the situation. But Georgia sports information director Claude Felton said today, “We’re not allowed to talk about players who haven’t signed yet.”
LeMay verbally committed to Georgia on April 30. He picked the Bulldogs over three other finalists — Clemson, Notre Dame and Texas A&M.
The Butler High School quarterback said at the time, “Every time I went [to Georgia] I just felt good about it. It was also the fact that every time I went there and left I couldn’t get it off my mind. I was constantly thinking about it and how I fit there, how coach Richt is. Me and him share the same personal beliefs. But also competing at the top level and trying to be successful in our Christian walk as well as on the football field.”
LeMay threw for 3,296 yards and 44 touchdowns with only two interceptions as a junior last season. He led Butler to an undefeated season and the Class 4A state championship in North Carolina.
The report did not specify what LeMay’s potential code of conduct violation was. Neither Butler’s coach, Mike Newsome, nor the player’s father, Stacy LeMay, would comment to the Charlotte Observer.
