Tar Heels release recruit after 2nd arrest

North Carolina has released safety Angelo Hadley from his letter of intent to play football for the Tar Heels in the fall.

The one-sentence e-mail from a university spokesman announcing the decision this morning came a day after Hadley, a three-star recruit from Tampa, Fla., was arrested for the second time this month in Hillsborough County, Fla.

He was charged Wednesday with third-degree grand theft, grand theft of a firearm and armed burglary of a dwelling with firearm possession, all third-degree felonies, according to the St. Petersburg Times.

On April 5, he was arrested on two felony charges of lewd and lascivious battery. A spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said Hadley, 18, had what he believed was consensual sex with a 14-year-old girl.

No, not enough stars on his rating for Fl. St.

ECU will, though.

Increditably stupid little moron. The dude is young, has skills and his whole future ahead of him - yet he wants to play the thug. I don't want to hear "he's a victim" crap. This dude gets what he deserves. Good riddance!

Incredible timing that he was released after the 2nd arrest and not the 3rd.
