After a rocky, bowlless 6-6 season, this can't be how Dennis Erickson wanted Arizona State's offseason to begin :
Redshirt freshman safety Ramon Abreu has been suspended indefinitely from the football program at Arizona State following his arrest for felony sexual conduct with a minor, ASUDevils.com has learned.Per the linked report, Arizona State had not been made aware of the arrest when Abreu signed with the Sun Devils last January (a situation that, if true, could make recruiting relations strained between the program and Abreu's high school). There is no word on when Abreu's suspension might be lifted, if it will be at all.
The alleged incident(s) took place while Abreu was an 18-year-old high school senior at Marcos de Niza in Tempe and involved a 14-year-old freshman at the school.
But where Abreu is concerned, given that his charges constitute a Class 2 felony "punishable by up to five years in prison," he's got much, much bigger problems than football right now. And as for the Sun Devils, it's just one more headache for a program that doesn't need any more than they've already got.
