Texas Signee Arrested For Selling Xanax At His High School

Reese Leitao, a Texas tight end signee in the class of 2017, was reportedly arrested this afternoon for selling Xanax at his high school.

FOX 23 news reported Leitao's arrest this evening.

Former Jenks football player and University of Texas signee Reese Leitao was arrested at Jenks High School Tuesday on possession and delivery of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to sell within a thousand feet of a school.

According to the Jenks campus police report, Leitao had 20 Xanax pills and more than $1,300 on him. According to the report, Leitao admitted to a Jenks administrator he was selling the Xanax.

He was reportedly booked at Tulsa County jail this afternoon. According to the Austin American-Statesman, he was held on a $15,000 bond.

Texas head coach Tom Herman put out a statement regarding Leitao's situation.

Leitao, who is listed at 6-foot-4, 234 pounds, is a three-star prospect, and the No. 19 tight end in the class of 2017, per 247Sports. He caught 34 passes for 423 yards and four touchdowns during his senior season at Jenks High School. The Tulsa native flipped to Texas on December 29, less than two weeks after decommitting from the Nebraska Cornhuskers in August, who he originally pledged to in August.

We'll update as more is announced about Leitao's status with the Longhorns.
