Texas Football Recruit Arrested on Charges of Armed Robbery and Assault

A former Mississippi football star, who had been headed to play at the University of Texas-San Antonio, turned himself in to police in connection with several felonies in Florida.

Police say it's his second felony arrest this year.

The Sun Herald reports 18-year-old Jaquelle Green, of D'Iberville, Mississippi, was wanted by Pensacola police on four counts of armed robbery, four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of wearing a mask in the commission of a felony.

Capt. Marty Griffin said Green was arrested Monday. His bond totals $510,000.

Griffin says Green was arrested in March along with three others in connection to the robbery of a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Green.
