Ohio St. recruiting class finishes with Carter

Ohio State added a 24th and final member to its recruiting class yesterday, but that signee won't arrive in Columbus without some degree on controversy.

That signee is Chris Carter, the 6'6", 350-pound offensive lineman who on Signing Day, Feb. 1, was arrested on suspicion fondling multiple underage girls while pretending to measure them for ROTC uniforms. The arrest threw Carter's future with the Buckeyes into doubt, but a lack of evidence resulted in the case being dismissed shortly afterwards.

After "three weeks of looking into the situation," Jim Tressel elected to overlook the arrest and welcome Carter with open arms :
"He has had a great support system at home, as well as at his high school. ... They truly believe that Chris will have great success on and off the field at Ohio State."
Whether fair or not, Tressel will have to hope that makes good on that promise of "great success off the field," since few players in Columbus (if any) will be under as much scrutiny for their off-field behavior. But if Carter can prove the arrest and suspicion is truly behind him, the Buckeyes will be getting a huge building block for an offensive line that has occasionally struggled against top-flight competition in recent years.

What the kid did was wrong.  The authorities stating that there is not enough evidence is laughable.  Of course there was and is enough evidence to convict this kid, but the authorities did not want to ruin him for a juvenile prank.

Another internet expert who knows more about the facts than the actual dectectives and prosecutors handling the case.  Since your at it,  can you tell us if there was enough evidence when LaMicheal James's plead no contest to beating up his ex-girlfriend?  Thanks.   

Unlike some of the buckeye fans on this site, I can read and comprehend, and that means you d-town.  The kid never denied the charges and that has been written in several places.  His words, not mine.  You are so determined to defend tOSU at every turn that you are completely blinded to the very basic truths in this case.  He fondled the girls by claiming to take their measurements for uniforms.  The school has already noted that he did this without their permission, and several girls made the claim.  But, evidently (that means not stated but understood), he is a pretty good kid that just got a bit carried away.  If d-town or any other buckeye fans wants to make the claim that the kid, the girls, and the school are all lying, then so be it.  Otherwise, quit acting like a douche and use some common sense.  Then again, Ann Landers did say that common sense was an uncommon virtue, some maybe some of you are incapable of basic fundamental thought.

The Buckeyes want him cause he has "hands on" experience.

NO... it's the QB that fondles the Center. I bet his folks aren't very "fond" of him now.
