Earlier this year in April, former Auburn defensive end Elijah Daniel was charged with four counts of theft of property and burglary. He along with former walk-on linebacker DeNorris James and former track walk-on Khalil Sellers, who were charged with five counts of the same crimes, were all dismissed from the university following their arrests.
According to College Football Talk, there seems to be more to the story that involves a current Tiger wide receiver. Sophomore receiver Stanton Truitt allegedly had an Apple Macbook and a Tag Heuer watch stolen from him by the three former student-athletes.
AL.com also wrote “among the other items Daniel, James and Sellers are accused of stealing from four other victims are multiple Xbox 360 game consoles and video games, an Xbox One game console and games, designer watches and cologne, according to court documents.”
Auburn has no distanced itself from the trio and they can now look towards the future for football. It may not seem like much now, but Truitt will more than likely be repaid the full value for his items. I’m sure he would trade that for a successful 2015 season.
Auburn opens the season on September 5 against Louisville at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
