MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota basketball recruit Trevor Mbakwe has chosen not to go to trial on felony assault charges and will instead enroll in a pre-trial program.
Upon completion, the state of Florida will drop its case against him and there will be no criminal conviction on his record.
Junior forward Trevor Mbakwe, one of Minnesota’s touted new recruits, will not be allowed to play for the 25th-ranked Gophers until his pending court case on a felony aggravated battery charge is cleared up.
Minnesota athletic director Joel Maturi says a basketball recruit who is scheduled to stand trial for felony battery can practice with the team.
A Miami woman has accused forward Trevor Mbakwe of punching her in the face in April. Mbakwe’s attorney says his client is innocent.
Mbakwe has not been cleared to play this season.
