Local high school basketball standout John Wall, one of the nation’s top uncommitted college prospects, has been cited with breaking and entering, Raleigh police said Monday.
Johnathan Hildred Wall, a 6-4 playmaker, averaged 21 points, seven rebounds and nine assists for Raleigh Word of God Christian Academy this past season. He is the No. 1-ranked point guard in the country by both Rivals.com and Scout.com.
Authorities said Wall, 18, was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering in connection with an April 27 break-in at an unoccupied home at 3924 Laurel Glen Drive in Raleigh.
An officer saw Wall leaving from the rear of the residence and was able to detain him, police said. Police said there was no forced entry at the residence and no indication that anything was taken from it.
Wall, the most highly recruited high school player in the country, is being pursued by a number of colleges, including North Carolina State University and Duke University.
