FSU Hoops Recruit Arrested

The Ledger, FL

Five-star basketball recruit Jon Kreft was arrested on drug charges Thursday in South Florida, jeopardizing his future at Florida State.

Kreft, 19, was arrested by Coral Springs police and charged with felony cocaine possession. The 7-foot, 240-pound center was also charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia possession.

Ranked by Rivals as the No. 29 prospect in the 2006 recruiting class, Kreft starred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. He committed to FSU almost two years ago, before his stock began to soar. Now he's in danger of losing his scholarship.

"We'll wait until the police report and all the details are on our desk, and then we'll make a decision based on those facts," FSU athletic director Dave Hart told the Tallahassee Democrat.

FSU rules prohibit student-athletes from competing while under felony charges. Hart said he would not support admitting a student-athlete facing felony charges.
