The Muncie Star Press reported Thursday that Indiana wide receiver Kiante Enis was arrested and charged with two counts of child molesting.
Enis was arrested Thursday and booked into the Randolph County Jail, where he was being held under a $20,000 bond, the newspaper reported.
On Wednesday, Randolph County sheriff’s deputies received a report of a “possible relationship” between Kiante Christopher Enis, 19, of the 200 block of East Main Street in Saratoga, and “a child 13 years or younger.”
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.”
Child molesting is a Level 3 felony carrying up to 16 years in prison. Randolph County Sheriff Ken Hendrickson confirmed the man under arrest is the well-known athlete who starred at Winchester Community High School.
Enis is a freshman and is listed on the Hoosiers’ 2016 roster. He was a finalist for the IndyStar Mr. Football award in 2016.
Enis verbally committed to Michigan initially before decommitting and signing with Indiana.
