Mark Richt's trip to jail pays off in prospect's letter of intent to Georgia. (UPDATED)

Georgia head football coach Mark Richt's trip to the slammer to hand prospect/bail-bondsman Josh Harvey-Clemons' aunt her misplaced ID has paid off. The high school outside linebacker has signed a letter of intent to play for Georgia in the fall.

"–Big News of the day so far for Georgia: outside linbacker Josh Harvey-Clemons picks Georgia over Florida State and Florida. He made the announcement on ESPNU. His sister provided the answer by showing a Georgia shirt.

“I knew when I went there that’s where I wanted to go after the visit,” Harvey-Clemons said about his Jan. 13 visit. ” It felt like home. They seemed like they wanted to win and go and compete for championships.”

Harvey-Clemons said his relationship with defensive coordinator Todd Grantham influenced him."

Clemons didn't mention that  Richt went to jail to give the linebacker's aunt her misplaced ID while the two family members were bailing some unfortunate who had a run-in with the law. But that was probably to protect Richt's character.

UPDATE: (2/1/12) 3:30 PM: It's being reported that Josh Harvey-Clemons's grandfather (and legal guardian) is refusing to sign off on the necessary papers for his grandson to sign with Georgia.

(UPDATE 2/2/12) Harvey-Clemons' LOI has been faxed to Georgia.)
