Elite Football Recruit Charged With Theft During University Of Georgia Visit

Darnell SalomonUniversity of Georgia wide receiver recruit Darnell Salomon certainly didn’t make a great impression during a recent visit to the school.

The Hialeah, Fla., native was accused of felony burglary by two female athletes who reported that an unknown male entered their suite in the school’s Busbee Hall on Saturday morning and stole an iPhone 5 and a wallet, according to a police report. Salomon was staying with two football players in the residence hall for Dawg Night, UGA’s largest recruiting event of the year.

Police issued a warrant for the five-star recruit, who has offers from 19 colleges.

Mike Tunsil, Salomon’s coach at Hialeah Champagnat Catholic, issued a statement Wednesday to 247Sports.com saying, “When the facts in the case come out, we’re all sure Darnell Salomon will be cleared of all charges.”
