Judge to Andre Jones: Get a Job

For those who forgot, Andre Jones is a 4 Star DT commit from El Paso who was involved in the famed "Playstation" robbery with Robert Joseph.  Jones appeared before Judge Brenda Kennedy this week to ask the state for financial assistance to aid his cash-strapped defense.   "Dre" needs money to hire an investigator. Judge Kennedy denied his request, and took a hard line against athletes who expect to have everything "given" to them.

"You cannot expect in life (things) to be given (to you) regardless of what kind of talent you have. You’re going to have to work to get some things in life," said Kennedy.

 

What surprised me most about the KVUE story is that I learned Jones still has his scholarship, is still suspended as opposed to dismissed, and is therefore still part of the football program.  If he is acquitted, should Mack welcome him back?  Or should he yank his scholarship regardless?
