Top Georgia Tech recruit arrested

One of the Georgia Tech’s top football recruits got into a little trouble on Thursday.

Mikell Lands-Davis, a 3-star running back from Alexander High School, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana possession of less than one ounce, per the Douglas County jail records. He’s the second high-rated member of Georgia Tech’s 19-man football recruiting class for 2015.

Lands-Davis was booked around noon on Thursday, and released four hours later on a $1,000 bond. No further details were available.

The arrest was first reported by’s Kelly Quinlan, who wrote “Georgia Tech has no policy in place that precludes Lands-Davis from signing with the Yellow Jackets.”

A couple of months ago, Lands-Davis committed to Georgia Tech over UNC, N.C. State, and Clemson. The 5-foot-10, 205-pound is rated as the state’s No. 53 overall prospect.

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson cannot comment specifically on Lands-Davis per NCAA rules since he is still a prospective student-athlete.
