Davin Bellamy, a highly sought after college football recruit from Georgia, tweeted a picture of himself, some friends, and a bong on a table in front of them last night during a recruiting trip to Oregon this weekend.
He has since deleted the tweet, which read “Oregon trip going better than I thought.” But the photo lives on all across the internet.
Yahoo! Sports asserts that “We will note that we have no proof he even used the bong, but just being in the picture with it is stupid. Check that … Being in a picture with it AND posting it on Twitter is stupid..”
“That’s Bellamy in an Oregon jacket with two gentlemen, four lovely young women, and a bong. Bellamy quickly deleted the picture, for obvious reasons, but everything on the Internet lives forever.
“Oregon is not thought to be a serious contender for the three-star defensive end out of Chamblee, Ga. He did not receive an offer from the Ducks until last week, and told reporters he was taking the visit to ‘see something different.’ Bellamy has been a Florida State commitment until December, but revoked his verbal after the Seminoles shook up their coaching staff.”
National Signing Day for incoming freshman football recruits is Wednesday. According Larry BrownSports, “Bellamy has received scholarship offers from about half the top schools in the country — including many from the SEC, ACC, and Big Ten.”
Do you think that the Davin Bellamy bong photo will have any bearing on what happens on Wednesday or is it completely irrelevant?
