September 26, 2012University of Alabama football recruit D.J. Johnson has been arrested on a charge of rape in the first degree, and is being held on $25,000 at the Baldwin County Corrections Center, according to the center's web site.
Johnson, of Spanish Fort High, was arrested by Daphne police Tuesday.
In an unrelated incident, Johnson has also been charged with second-degree rape and sodomy, for which he was booked earlier this month.
The four-star recruit, who was recruited by UA secondary coach Jeremy Pruitt, committed to Alabama on April 14. It is unclear whether UA's scholarship offer will be honored. Under NCAA rules, coaches are not permitted to comment on prospective student-athletes.
Johnson is a wide receiver prospect.
