So when he gets out of jail will he still have 4 yrs of eligibility? If so maybe the buckeyes will take him

No-one should take him. The charges he he's been convicted of, are too serious for a second chance (just like they are in the real world),

i dont know man, hes 18   I guess Im just making excuses for him but three years is a little excessive but I guess if it were my duaghter it would be different, the parents on both sides and the victim begged for a light sentenance   well its being relooked in 180 days we shall see    I know the nature of the crime, meaning the violence/kidnapping is severe hence the three years and he could have gotten 8 I guess hes somewhat lucky  He gets out when he is 20 with good behavior or superior BBall skills  Sorry have to throw that in there.

LOL an 18 year old male convicted of kidnapping, felony assaults....looking for probation? ROFL; personally think it should have been more if he is truly guilty.

I like how the news report says "top recruit" kid is a 3 star...yea stars aren't all that, but I follow basketball recruiting more than I do football and have never heard of him.

I wonder what the video tape revealed.  Did he just grab his ex and pull her a short distance?  Some prosecutors will over charge in such cases.  (And I say this as a very pro law enforcement individual)  Anyone on her seen the actual video?
