Four Other UGA Players In Car With Crowell; Tailback Says He Didn’t Know About Gun

Those four people who were in the car with Isaiah Crowell when he was arrested at a road block at 2:20am (and booked at 3:37am) in Athens today?  Yep, they were members of the Georgia football team, too.

According to the recently released police report, three signees from Mark Richt’s 2012 class and another current Bulldog player were riding along with Crowell when officers at a checkpoint smelled marijuana, searched the tailback’s car, and found a 9-mm Luger with an altered serial number under the driver’s seat.

At this point, there are no charges against Sheldon Dawson (freshman defensive back), Josh Harvey-Clemons (freshman linebacker), Blake Tibbs (freshman receiver), and Quintavius Harrow (sophomore defensive back).  The fact that three newbies were hanging out with Crowell, who’s not exactly been a great role model since arriving at UGA, probably turns a few Bulldog fans’ stomachs.

But this is where things get more interesting.

According to the Crowell, he and his teammates were leaving an Athens club called Aftermath — appropriately enough — and that the smell of marijuana came from the club.  If so, there must be some sweet, stinky weed ablaze in that joint (pun intended):

Crowell said he let one of the other players drive the car and denied knowing that the gun was in the car.  The vehicle is registered to Crowell’s mother.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Crowell’s bond was actually raised from $7,500 to $9,500 late this morning.  The Athens Banner-Herald had previously reported that bond had been dropped to $6,000 and that Crowell had been handed a 10pm curfew.

Despite his many issues, Crowell was still named the SEC’s Freshman of the Year by The Associated Press last season.

Memphis Athlete Dawson Likely Headed To Georgia

Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway athlete Sheldon Dawson will likely sign with Georgia on Feb. 1.

“I think (Georgia) is where he’s going,” Ridgeway coach Duron Sutton told 247Sports.

Sutton said his belief was that Dawson had informed Georgia coaches of his decision. But Dawson, who has been committed to Memphis since July, said that wasn’t the case when reached via text message by 247Sports.

Ole Miss appears to still be in the picture and could receive an official visit from Dawson this weekend. Either way, Dawson is expected to announce his final decision Monday during a ceremony at his school, according to Sutton.

Two SEC Prospects Commit Elsewhere

Two prospects considering SEC schools committed outside the conference on Monday.

Offensive lineman Will Adams from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., committed to Georgia Tech over an offer from Kentucky.

“It was down to Georgia Tech and Kentucky,” Adams said, “and I kept thinking, ‘What does Kentucky have that Georgia Tech doesn’t have?’”

What Georgia didn’t have was a scholarship offer for Adams. The Bulldogs fan will now be playing for his favorite team’s biggest rival.

“The fan in me wanted to play for Georgia,” Adams said “But the rest of me wanted to go to a school and play football where I was wanted. I could say some things about Georgia, but they got who they needed on the offensive line. You know, that’s fine how everything worked out. I just realized maybe that Georgia was not the place for me. Once I had that thought in my head, I realized that it wasn’t the place for me. Then my decision for Georgia Tech got so much easier for me.”

Sheldon Dawson’s decision to commit to Memphis was far from easy. The cornerback from Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway High School decided to stay close to home rather than travel across the state and play for Tennessee.

“Like I was headed to Tennessee, but I just felt in my heart that it wouldn’t be right because I love my city,” Dawson said, according to Scout.com.

Dawson is the second SEC prospect to commit to Memphis in the last week. Quarterback Will Gross from Memphis Melrose High School chose the Tigers last week.

“I saw another top-25 recruit who wanted to stay here at home and help Memphis out, so I wanted to do the same thing,” Dawson said of Gross. “Many may say we’re making a bad decision, but we just believe. We believe in Coach (Larry) Porter, and we believe we can help him get the job done.”
