Not surprisingly, Kiante Enis‘ time at Indiana has come to a premature end.
Earlier this afternoon, reports surfaced that Enis had been arrested on two counts of molesting a child 13 years of age or younger. Not only that, but, according to police, Enis admitted to investigators that he had what he described as a “consensual sexual encounter” with the alleged victim on at least two occasions.
Less than two hours after the reports first came to light, the Hoosiers announced in a very short, terse statement that Enis has been dismissed from the football program. The dismissal is “effective immediately,” the school added.
Enis remains jailed in lieu of a $20,000 bond. He faces up to 16 years in prison on each charge if found guilty.
A three-star 2016 signee, Enis was rated as the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Indiana. He hadn’t played in either of the Hoosiers’ first two games this season.
