WR prospect accused of UGA burglary returns to Athens, posts bond

One of the nation’s top wide receiver recruits for 2016 turned himself in Friday in Athens after an arrest warrant was issued three days earlier on a charge of felony first degree burglary. He was released less than an hour later.

Darnell Salomon returned to Georgia from his home in Miramar, Fla. He posted a $7,500 bond Friday afternoon, according to the Clarke County Jail’s online booking report.

Salomon attended Georgia’s Dawg Night camp last week. University of Georgia police allege he took items reported missing by two female athletes in a dorm room on Saturday morning.

The rising junior had access to the dorm because he was staying with two current football players.

The athletes reported an unknown black male entered their Busbee Hall suite about 7:30 a.m. Saturday and took an iPhone5 and a wallet with two credit cards in it.

Salomon is denying the charge.

Salomon’s attorney contacted the Athens-Clarke County Sherrif’s Office and the Athens-Clarke County District Attorney’s Office after the warrant was issued on Tuesday.

Georgia is among many high-profile schools who had offered the 6-foot-3, 180-pound Salomon, along with Notre Dame, LSU, Florida State, Florida, Clemson and Alabama.
