In other football news, prized recruit Willie Williams surrendered to authorities Tuesday morning at Broward County Jail on charges of violating his probation.

Miami Athletic Director Paul Dee released this statement regarding Williams’s arrest.

“With the events of [Tuesday], including both the issuance of the arrest warrant for Willie Williams by the Broward County circuit judge and the filing of charges in Gainesville by the State’s attorney regarding the incidents of last weekend, the University of Miami has determined that it will delay the processing of the application for admission of Willie Williams.”

According to the Miami Herald, this means that UM has not made a final decision on whether or not it will admit Williams. His letter-of-intent is not official until the university admits the student.

The Hurricane will continue to update further developments in Williams’s situation.

Equestrian

The University of Miami Equestrian Team traveled to Atlanta, GA this past weekend for the Emory-Georgia Tech-Georgia State IHSA show. Despite 36-degree weather and snow flurries throughout the day, the team managed to collect seven points.

Lara Radojcic placed fifth in Novice Over Fences, while Megan Salazar stole second in the Novice Under Saddle class. Also in Novice Under Saddle, Hallie Sheade, Daria Baker and Kristina Moser took home third, forth and fifth respectively.

At her first show ever, Sally Gales received sixth place in the Walk/Trot division. The team will be visiting Savannah College of Art and Design on March 27th for their last show of the semester in Savannah, GA.
