Decision on Butler QB LeMay expected within 2 weeks

Facing a possible out-of-school suspension for up to 30 days, Butler quarterback Christian LeMay met with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' officials for about an hour Monday morning, his father told the Observer.

Stacy LeMay said it was the second time his family had met with school officials after Christian violated a CMS code of conduct rule last week. If Christian were to receive the full suspension, which would begin at the start of the 2010-11 school year in August, he would be forced to sit out from football until mid- to late October.

Stacy LeMay said CMS will have a decision on his son's future within two weeks.

In a statement released to the media, the LeMay family said Christian had made an error in judgement but did not specify what rule he had violated.

Christian LeMay, who turned 18 last weekend, is ranked as the No. 2 college quarterback prospect in the nation and as high as the nation's No. 12 overall player by recruiting services. He threw for more than 3,000 yards and 44 touchdowns, against only two interceptions, and led Butler to an undefeated season and a state title in 2009. He has committed to Georgia.

Stacy LeMay said the family has not spoken to Georgia coaches since the incident but planned to do so.
