National Signing Day: Buckeyes Recruit Chris Carter Arrested

New, 1 comment

National Signing Day is supposed to be about hope and the future for Ohio State Football recruits. For one, however, its about something much more serious than football.

John F. Kennedy offensive lineman Chris Carter was held overnight in city jail after a 15-year old girl told police that Carter had taken her into a room at the high school and allegedly fondled her. According to the report, Carter admitted to more victims when he was interviewed by police.

Police said when they talked to Carter he admitted that he had fondled other girls using the same ruse. Police asked him to give them the book that he used to record the measurements and he turned it over.

“The book revealed more victims,” the report said, noting there was measurement information for eight girls in the book.

Another victim told police that Carter stopped her in the hallway and asked her to come into a room where he “asked her to take her clothes off. The victim took off everything except her panties” and then he measured her, police said in the report.

There is no word on what this will do to Carter’s commitment or Ohio State’s scholarship offer.
