Georgia Tech Investigation: Demaryius Thomas, 2009 Season Reportedly Involved

And here's the first clue on what those mysterious Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football violations might be: WSB-TV's Zach Klein tweeted that a source says the NCAA investigation "has, in part, to do with Demaryius Thomas and Morgan Burnett receiving gifts." Klein specified a shirt and watch.

And here's the second: From The Rumble Seat reports the 2009 ACC Championship season could be involved in some way. Thomas and Burnett starred on that '09 team, so the two could go hand-in-hand. Definitely not liking the way things are lining up, but there's still nothing concrete out there.

Thomas and Burnett committed to Georgia Tech in 2006 and 2007 respectively, while the program was still on probation.

If anything untoward actually happened during their recruitment ... there's going to be a lot of crowing in Athens for the rest of the week and beyond. If improper benefits changed hands during the 2009 season, which would be weird, Tech could lose a banner -- which would be highly preferable to committing a violation while on probation.
