Dexter Moody's scholarship rescinded...

19 posts in this topic

According to published reports, Georgia football coach Mark Richt has rescinded a scholarship offer to Emanuel County Institute's Dexter Moody.

UGAsports.com is reporting that Richt will hold a press conference later this afternoon to announce that the Bulldogs will not take Moody, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound linebacker, due to behavioral issues.

Fwiw.

Wow, thats a surprise. Wonder if charges of some sort will be pressed in the near future for Moody? Also seems strange for Richt to have a press conference on the release of a player who isnt even at the University.

Is this the kid that had rumors about him and the coaches' wife?

I'm sure he will go on to play for Ole Miss or Florida, in fact, I bet GU already has his essay on why it's okay for Moody to play at UF.

Signee Moody becomes a late subtraction | Blogs.OnlineAthens.com

Georgia's football recruiting class had two late additions in tight end Orson Charles and defensive lineman Kwame Geathers.

They now have a late subtraction.

Here's the story on Dexter Moody that I just sent in to get posted online.

By Marc Weiszer

Georgia has cut ties with football signee Dexter Moody.

The linebacker from Emanuel County Institute in Twin City has been released from his scholarship by the school because of a combination of academic and behavior issues, according to his coach.

Milan Turner said Georgia informed Moody on Friday about its decision.

“They kind of had a plan for him to finish up the year as far as eligibility and schoolwork and behavior,” Turner said. “He’s kind of gotten off track there and I think they felt it was best to give him an unconditional release and let him kind of decide what he wants to do.”

Turner said he was unsure whether the university made the decision or it was made independently by the football program. Turner said Moody had no legal issues that were a factor.

“I think there’s some disappointment there, but he’s a senior in high school and when they give you a plan to follow and you don’t follow it, you kind of reap what you sow,” Turner said.

Turner said Georgia had a weekly plan for Moody to follow in hopes of showing progress academically.

“It had to do with grades and test taking,” Turner said. “I just don’t think he was following the plan that was set up for him.”

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Moody played in the Under Armour All-American game and was rated No. 101 on the ESPNU150 rankings.

Moody also considered Florida and LSU.

“I’m sure there will be other folks interested,” Turner said

From what I've heard, some poster on a forum alleges that he was DM's classmate, and that DM got into a fight with his teacher. Again, just a rumor.

Supposedly:

Dexter Moody's scholarship was pulled today because of an altercation with a teacher last week. There were rumors 2 months ago about a situation with Moody and an older female who is very "close" to the ECI program. Nothing was ever proven with that. The confrontation that happened last week was serious. Dexter was in class and had a big confrontation with one of his teachers. He threatened the teacher and threw a desk across the room. Basically, his loose cannon finally fired off. Dexter was kicked out of ECI and is now attending an alternative school nearby.

He is supposedly going to attend Troy and may play baseball. He's also had behavior problems before in the classroom. I hope the kid straightens his life out, but I'm glad he's not coming to Athens.

Why would I write an essay to justify that kid playing at UF? Every player that's done something deplorable at UF and gotten himself dismissed, I've said as much. And, those players who are later found to have done nothing wrong, I make sure to post that info as well. Interesting that some UGA fans love to convict UF guys on rumor alone; but fail to do the same things with their own players. Meyer has been pretty quick to get rid of the real trouble makers; but he's also willing to give second chances, provided he's convinced the kid might do something with it, and provided the transgression isn't serious enough to warrant outright dismissal.

As for Moody... well, even with a couple schollies left to hand out, I don't think Meyer is interested in wasting them on a 3* LB with discipline problems.

Moody, is capable of playing a couple of positions though. It's a shame really that he is going to likely end up pissing his career away.

I'll be honest with you... I can't believe any of them do what they do to piss away all they have coming. Especially guys who are like sophomores or juniors already in school. I mean, it's not like you have to be an angel or anything in the first place, if you're a star athlete. You already get more benefit of the doubt than average students. You don't have to be a good boy... you just can't be such a POS that nobody wants to have anything to do with you. Do that, pass your crip courses, and become a frickin' millionaire. I just don't ever get it... and I don't ever want to be able to understand that kind of stupidity. It might be contagious.

Pretty much my opinion too, why act like a piss ant and blow millions of dollars. Just f'n behave, seriously.

LOL.

Ronnie Wilson fired an AK-47 in a fight and was busted with pot in his car while supposedly earning his "second chance" and was still allowed to return to the team. A whole lot of Florida fans and bloggers (i.e. Spencer Hall) that aren't the hack you are called it a really bad move at the time. And sure enough, Wilson was arrested again just a couple months later.

Major fail on your part (and Meyer's). Fortunately for Meyer though, Florida ended up being stronger at DT than it was when he brought Rifleman Ronnie back as an emergency stop-gap move.

It was an AK47 that only shot Semi-Auto, please don't make the story worse then it was.

I wonder what Florida fan that sounds like....:whistle:

:laugh: Holy sh*t, now the guy's a terrorist... he fired off an AK-47 lookalike that was a friggin' .22. Now, I'll admit, that is embarrassing... for him.:o In any event, he was a risk that didn't pay off for Meyer and club... but, he and the Gators ain't alone; and the ones that do get dismissed seem to be good enough for other unnamed programs.:whistle:

Shore is a lot of black pot on the board tonight... I'd stay and trade barbs (and a little lame neg-rep with the children in the audience, but I try to stay above that foolishness); but, the kettle is headed to bed.

From the Red & Black...

"Georgia commit Dexter Moody has been released from his national letter of intent, allegedly for an argument and subsequent suspension at his Twin City high school.

"I had a little bit of trouble happen on Tuesday," Moody told Brett Jensen of TotalUGA.com. "I got into an argument with my teacher ... [and the principal] suspended me."

Moody, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound outside linebacker, was one of 20 high school students to become a part of Georgia's 2009 class in February.

According to an e-mail from Associate Athletic Director for Sports Communication Claude Felton: "[Moody] has been released from his national letter of intent by UGA. Moody submits it to the NLI. As such from our end, he is now once again considered a 'recruitable athlete' and we are not permitted to comment on him."

Prior to committing to Georgia, Moody had received offers from South Carolina and Florida."
