Kiante Enis, a freshman wide receiver for Indiana University, has been charged with molestation after police were notified to a "possible relationship" between Enis and "a child 13 years or younger."

From the Indianapolis Star:

According to a press release issued by the sheriff's department, Enis was interviewed by investigators and "admitted to a consensual sexual encounter that occurred on at least two occasions in Randolph County."

Enis was arrested Thursday and booked in Randolph County jail, with bail set at $20,000, and could face up to 16 years in prison. Enis was a highly-decorated high school running back in Indiana who originally committed to play at Michigan but later de-committed and accepted a scholarship to Indiana. He has not played in either of the Hoosiers first two games this year, apparently due to concussion.
