5-star UGA recruit apologizes to Mark Richt for theft incident

Last year during the University of Georgia’s annual Dawg Night, a night where the team hosts multiple high school athletes, a five-star football recruit was involved in a burglary incident that eventually led to the school dropping them from their recruitment list.

Now, the athlete has owned up to his wrongdoing and apologized to head UGA coach Mark Richt.

According to the AJC, Darnell Soloman was attending Dawg Night last year when he allegedly entered into the dorm room of two UGA students and stole a wallet containing cash and credit cards and an IPhone. The campus police issued a warrant for his arrest.

Soloman talked with UGASports about the incident at the five star challenge in Baltimore.

“It was just a mistake, a really dumb mistake I made,” Salomon told the website. “Everyone makes mistakes, I learned, and will never do something like that again.”

Soloman further expressed his apology by sending a two-page letter to Richt. He owned up to his mistakes and told Richt that “everything was good” and that he had a clean slate within the letter.

This comes after the Bulldogs announced they had dropped Soloman from their recruiting class.

I don’t know about you, but this just seems like a case of Soloman trying to get back in the good light when it comes to being recruited by colleges. He currently holds offers from Alabama, LSU, Texas, and Clemson among others and he is reportedly leaning towards the Crimson Tide.
