Wake Forest Recruit Al-Farouq Aminu Charged With Aggravated Assault
The report says Aminu was charged with aggravated assault, a felony, as well as misdemeanor trespassing, after he was accused of shooting a female with a BB gun from a vehicle on March 14. Just before the paper reported Aminu's arrest, it chose him as the state of Georgia's Mr. Basketball.
Aminu is widely regarded as a player who will spend only one year playing college basketball and then leave for the NBA. He is a long-armed 6-foot-9 small forward who is currently projected as the second pick in the 2009 NBA Draft by nbadraft.net.
