As reported by esteemed colleague Chip Towers, three arrests have been made in the theft of iPhones and iPods from Georgia’s locker room. One of those arrested is a football recruits for the year 2012
A gentle suggestion: Were I Georgia, I would no longer recruit that player.
This isn’t to prejudge guilt or innocence as defined by our legal system. Due process will take care of that. But Towers quotes UGA police chief Jimmy Williamson as saying of his investigation: “Facebook is always a big help.”
(And this works … how? Jimmy Williamson sends a suspect a “friend” request?)
If I’m Mark Richt, my new list of guidelines for pursuing football talent would read thusly:
Rule No. 1: Do not recruit anyone who might have gotten arrested due to something posted on Facebook.
Rules No. 2-10: See Rule No. 1.
