One of the state's top football recruits is in some hot water over a picture he posted on twitter showing him in the same room with a bong.

Chamblee High School standout defensive end Davin Bellamy says the photo was taken during a recent recruiting trip to the University of Oregon.

Bellamy told Yahoo! Sports he stopped briefly to pose for the picture without realizing there was a bong in the room -- let alone the frame.

The senior says he quickly deleted the photo from his twitter account but not before others noticed it and made their own copies which are circulating on the internet.

Bellamy is just days away from announcing which school he intends to play for next year. He's indicated he's leaning heavily towards the University of Georgia.

Contacted on twitter, Bellamy declined a request for an on-camera interview, responding, "No thank you. I appreciate that opportunity, but I just want this to blow over."
