Florida football signee Justin Watkins was arrested in Ocala on Wednesday and charged with one count of misdemeanor trespassing on school grounds at Ocala Vanguard High School last Friday.
According to police, Watkins, who is not a student at Vanguard, followed his girlfriend on to campus and kicked her car multiple times and also let some air out of one of her tires.
Earlier, at a gas station, Watkins threw his girlfriend’s cell phone to the ground, shattering the screen, police said.
Watkins, one of the highest-rated prospects in UF’s 2018 recruiting class, was released from jail early Thursday morning after posting a $500 bond.
“We are aware of the incident with Justin and are still collecting information,” UF coach Dan Mullen said in a statement.
