UCLA 5-star RB commit Soso Jamabo arrested after his prom

5-star recruit Soso Jamabo committed to UCLA on National Signing Day and was one of the nation’s most sought after recruits. Jamabo made headlines prior to Signing Day when he jokingly listed “University of Phoenix and ITT Tech” as his final schools.

The talented running back from Plano West High School in Texas will join the Bruins next fall, but he isn’t finishing his high school career on a high note and is making headlines for the wrong reasons.

Jamabo was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with evading arrest with a vehicle, minor consumption of alcohol and minor in possession of alcohol, as well as a few traffic violations according to the Dallas Morning News.

Saturday night was Jamabo’s prom, as he had posted a picture of himself and his date on Twitter at around 6 p.m. It’s not really a surprise to hear of a high schooler drinking on prom night, but it is not a good early impression for Jamabo to make as he gets ready to head off to big time college football.
