According to reports originally obtained from the Leon County (Fla.) Sheriff’s office, Florida State Seminoles senior wide receiver Greg Dent was arrested Sunday and booked on charges of sexual assault. Dent was arrested by the Tallahassee Police Department and booked at around 9 p.m. He’s being held without bond, and is scheduled for an appearance before a judge in the morning–at which time we’ll know more details.
Dent, a senior, is expected by many to be a breakout performer in an already stacked receiving crew.
The wideout arrived in Tallahassee in 2010 and played in all 12 games as a true freshman, mainly on special teams. He saw sporadic action on offense, mainly in mop-up duty.
2011 and 2012 were a little more productive for the Belle Grade, Florida native. Proving to be one of the more dangerous deep threats on the squad, Dent averaged 19.7 yards per catch in 2011, showing flashes of what could eventually develop for the ‘Noles.
Last season was certainly his most productive. Appearing in all 14 games, Dent had impressive performances in big games against the Clemson Tigers and Virginia Tech Hokies. In the game in Blacksburg, Dent set a new receiving yardage best with 73 on just four catches. He would go on to have a total of nine multi-reception games. Again, showing signs that he may be ready to explode this season as a consistent playmaker in Tallahassee.
Now, that may be in jeopardy, pending the outcome of this unfortunate situation.
Again, it’s always important to keep in mind not to jump to any conclusions in a matter like this–for the sake of not only Dent himself, but the alleged victim involved as well.
