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.

Hmmmm, and 18 year old boy in high school grabs a girls boobie?  Oh my god that is big time news!!!!!!  In the history of the United States this is the very first time a high school boy has touched a girls breasts or booty!  Wait I did that in high school too and was promptly smacked.  Wait if I think even deeper I recall a lot of young boys getting smacked for grabbing booty and boobie.  Than again I recall the little girls grabbing packages also.  I think I will call this pubecent curiousity, thanks Jerry Hinnen without your article the world would never know that high school boys and girls are curious about each other.  Thanks for the alert on human nature.  

I think Jerry Hinnen the author of this article is just a little bit "slow"

Carter might be a secret weapon that OU has needed for Bowl success: Carter can fondle and confuse the D Line - finally helping Ohio State to victory in the games that count.



Yeah he really needs to help Ohio State with their 6-3 record in BCS bowl games...

Ethics always comes on a full stomach--thi kids would not have had a chance in hell to sign for the bucks if Tressel and his team were not in dire need of offensive line help---not a knock on tressel or osu--they are just doing what everybody else does. Just dont pretend you are above this stuff any longer coach--winning is the goal and does not matter how you do it.

5 stars for you jiggy, I second that motion. 

At least he was fondling girls and not the boys. The 18 yr old kid is 6'6" 350.  Talk all the trash you want, but OSU and Tressel's reputations are already impenetrable.  I'll take a few more fondling beasts on our O-line if they're that big
ND would also come to mind with an article like this. I am just sayin.....

My first year of teaching, a student said that I touched her inappropriately.  She later admitted that I was only touching her on the shoulder because I couldn't see her work as she hunched over it.  Luckily it didn't ruin my career before it got started.  I'm not saying that's what happened here because I don't know.  There's also no way know what the police were thinking since we're not them.  The only thing that we know is that the police did not press charges.  I am no fan of OSU, but I think the kid should be allowed to sign with anyone he wants to.  He has nothing but an accusation against him.

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.
