Dewan Huell is one of the biggest recruits in the history of the University of Miami basketball program, but before he ever took the court he ran into trouble.
Huell, 19, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon and charged with battery.
According to an exclusively-obtained police report, Huell walked into his ex-girlfriend's dorm room at FIU uninvited. He found her hiding in the closet with another man.
Police say Huell grabbed the man by his shirt and dragged him out of the room, which left the man with scratches on his chest and neck.
Hurricanes athletic director Blake James issued the following statement:
"I am aware of the reported incident involving Dewan Huell last night and we are still gathering information. I have very high expectations for all of our student-athletes, as I know Coach Larrañaga does for his team, and any misconduct will be addressed."
Huell, the five-star recruit from Miami Norland, is listed as 6-11, 220 lbs.
