Three Suspects In UGA Locker Room iPod Raid Are Football Recruits

University of Georgia police chief Jimmy Williamson has confirmed his force is looking for two adults and a juvenile from Columbus, Georgia in connection with the April 7 Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall iPod looting. They also say they’ll release names on Monday, which could immediately get very interesting. reports Williamson called the suspects “football recruits,” not students or faculty members. The latter would’ve made more sense, as the event during which the electronics went missing was indeed Football Faculty Appreciation Day.

Football recruits from Columbus — that could be any number of players, but whichever trio is named is going to have a lot of explaining to do to any of the other schools to which they’re being recruited (besides Ole Miss). Williamson also said most of the stolen items, except for the iPhones, were recovered in a sweep of a Columbus house.

Have you ever heard of recruits stealing from a school during a recruiting trip? Would you like to bet these kids had made trips to Auburn before they came to Athens? A young man could get confused about how these things work, after all.
