Fort Pierce, Fla. football player Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad is supposed to be heading to Louisville in the near future to play college football. But the three-star recruit might not be headed to play linebacker for Bobby Petrino and the Cardinals after all. And it has absolutely nothing to do with his skills on the football field.
Rhaheed-Muhammad was arrested recently and charged with lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor after he allegedly got a 14-year-old girl pregnant. And sadly, the 14-year-old girl wasn't just any girl, either. She also happens to be his cousin. The girl told police that sex between her and Rhaheed-Muhammad "just happened" and confirmed that she had an abortion as a result of getting pregnant. Rhaheed-Muhammad was arrested a short time later and a DNA test proved that he was the father of the girl's unborn child.
At the moment, the only thing that Petrino and Louisville have said is that they are "aware of the situation." But we can't see the school bringing this kid in after what he allegedly did.
