Cedar Grove High School defensive tackle Quentez Johnson, who committed to Miami last week, has backed off his pledge.

The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder tweeted out the news:

“I am no longer committed to the University of Miami. I love Miami and the staff but I feel as if I rushed into a decision. I need more time and I need to take more visits because this is one of the most important decisions in my life. Sorry for all the hype. I hope you guys can understand.”

Johnson is a 3-star prospect with around 20 early scholarship offers, including Georgia Tech and Georgia State.

You read two posts that actually relate to the article and the recruit, and the rest of the posts are immature Georgia and Georgia Tech fans (obviously not graduates) issuing insults back and forth to one another.  How incredibly boring.

I thought his fiance was like 21-22 years old?

Supersize, so Pruitt has a reputation for fooling around with the coeds?  Well that certainly explains why he didn't wind up at tech

Hmm, it looks like somebody deleted the post that BuzzOff made accusing me of blasting a UGA coach.  I was in the middle of responding to his accusation when everything disappeared....both what I was typing and his post as well.  Nevertheless, I am sure he will read this, so I will say it again......I wasn't blasting anybody.  I was merely repeating what some GEORGIA FANS told my nephew at work this morning, and I stated emphatically that it was a RUMOR.  It would seem like it is some Georgia fans who were blasting their own, not me.  The link that I later posted originated in Florida, also not with me, and there was a similar article in the Orlando Sentinel, both stating that Pruitt has a history of messing around with coeds.

He got home and realized MIAMI might get on probation again real soon. LOL

I heard a rumor (repeat---just a rumor) that Ga. Tech is going to pretend to play football this year. Is there any truth to this rumor? Wait, yes it is confirmed. It is no longer a rumor. They will just be pretending as usual.

I just heard a rumor (repeat---RUMOR) that Georgia's new DC has DUI and gun charges pending against him, and that Richt knew about it and hid it from the AD.  Anybody know anything about this?

@gtcaryd  She is 23.  I love the dawgs but that is a little creepy, I don't care who the coach works for!!  But if he can field a legit defense, I don't really care about his fiance and her age...unless she NOT of age!!

@ElemennoP Your right, he probably likes being smarter than his dates.

@SupersizeThatOrder-mutt That's all BS that was made up by FSU fans who were upset about Pruitt leaving. This was settled long ago, why are people still bringing it up ?

@SupersizeThatOrder-mutt This kind of crap is out of bounds and totally classless. One of your own has called you out on this and you should be ashamed.

@SupersizeThatOrder-mutt   but everybody said I was a hater when I mentioned his problems with the ladies at Bama and then at FSU. He seems to be around Young Ladies a little too much. Wonder if his young Fiance will call it off.

Does that mean UGA will pretending to be national title contenders this year.......again?

Can't speak to random internet rumors, anything is possible I guess. However, I emphatically don't believe that CMR would try to cover up something of this nature. Not only would it be out of character but what would be the point? The arrest would be public record anyway.

If JP is a Democrat then he has a chance to have success with his cover up. Just kidding. "What difference does it make now". Is this thing on?

@GeoffDawg  

There are definitely holes to the story, but like I said above, it came from Georgia fans, so I figure where there's smoke there's fire

@ElemennoP Maybe he can hook up with Professor prostitute since he is at UGA.

My nephew didn't post anything.  I merely asked for him if anybody knew anything about something SOME GEORGIA FANS were telling him face to face.  As far as the other, the Orlando Sentinel is not just a blog reporting rumors.

@SupersizeThatOrder-mutt @thebucket So a blog posts rumors and your nephew posts rumors and now all of a sudden it is "documented"? Like I said, PaulinNH, who is no Dawg fan wrote, "Come on Supersize - you are better than this.  The internet is full of complete unsubstantiated BS.   

Imagine your response if a UGA fan posted something similar about Roof."

@PaulinNH @SupersizeThatOrder-mutt  

Like I said this morning, I only repeated a question posed to me by a nephew who heard something from some Georgia fans where he works.  If it had come from Tech fans, I would have written it off.  That then led to somebody posting elsewhere the two links to articles about Pruitt being a womanizer.  What my nephew heard has not been substantiated at all thus far, but the other claims are pretty well documented.

@GeoffDawg

You are probably right there, and that's why I prefaced the initial post by saying it was a rumor.  I do find it interesting, however, that it was being spread by Georgia fans.  The philandering reputation, as well as his apparent preference for younger women should nevertheless not be taken too lightly.  I don't know that I would care for a child of mine to be playing for a "player," which that link referred to him as being.

GeoffDawg

I think there is a distinction that does matter here.  The rumors of philandering may get you dragged into the HC or AD's office and lectured about protecting the reputation of the program.  DUI and gun crimes will get you fired in short order.

In either case, this is probably all moot anyway.  Unless your nephew works somewhere that gives him access to publicly undisclosed information, this kind of issue would probably be all over the blogosphere by now if there was any robust evidence to support it.

@GeoffDawg

The DUI / weapons thing came from (Georgia) co-workers of my nephew.  The link came from another blogger on here.  Remember, I initially said it was a rumor; the "player/philanderer" thing apparently goes as far back as his time at Bama.  Either none of it matters or somebody is in denial.....time will tell

GeoffDawg

What's your new source? I haven't heard or seen anything else today about a DUI or weapons charges.

@GeoffDawg  

That was just further indication of an apparent problem.  I don't know if what I heard this morning came from that originally or is something new.  Either way, it looks like the mutts have moved from a thug DC to a sleazeball one

If the link above is the one you're referring to, it was published 4 months ago. If nothing's come of it since then, I wouldn't hold my breath. It was also framed as Georgia fans just repeating the opinion of a Florida talk show host.
