Jarvis Jones, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Allegations Subject Of UGA 'Due Diligence'

After the Ledger-Enquirer published a report that incoming football transfer Jarvis Jones and basketball signee Kentavious Caldwell-Pope may have their NCAA eligibility dinged due to Columbus' lack of a Ron Swanson, the University of Georgia has said it's looking into the matter.

Athletic association spokesman Claude Felton told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chip Towers UGA will do its "due diligence."

The charge raised in Caldwell-Pope's case -- that AAU Georgia Blazers money was used to pay for part of his mother's $280 cell phone bill -- sounds insignificant compared to the $828 allegedly used to fly Jones back and forth across the country. Especially since there's no telling from the report just how much of that phone bill was paid for with city money.

But both pale in comparison to the case of Perry Jones III, who received benefits worth more than $4,000 from an AAU coach and will miss only six total basketball games, or about a fifth of a season.
