Aquille Carr, a top 100 players in the class of 2013 and the jewel of Seton Hall's recruiting class for next year, was arrested and charged with assault, according to a report in the Baltimore Sun. The report states:
He was arrested at 8 a.m. Friday on a warrant issued Tuesday. Police confirmed the arrest on charges of second degree assault and reckless endangerment, but said they had no details about the warrant or where Carr was arrested. He is being held on $50,000 bond, according to state court records.
Being held on $50,000 bond makes me think the crime in question is rather serious. Carr's commitment was a huge for Seton Hall and potentially losing him due to legal troubles would be a major blow to a program that came very close to making it back to the NCAA Tournament last year. While sometimes these arrests stories turn out to be less than first reported, this doesn't appear to be one of those stories. Kevin Willard and staff will have to hit the recruiting trail hard for a new point guard and headliner for the 2013 class.
