HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A Marshall University football recruit, that some say is one of the top players in 2013 recruiting class, was arrested Tuesday morning.

Angelo Jean-Louis, 20, was booked into the Western Regional Jail on two felony counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

According to the criminal complaint filed by Marshall University Police, Jean-Louis used a stolen credit card to make two separate purchases at a convenience store on 5th Avenue on April 3. The purchases were for $14.20 and $11.62.

The MU Sports Information Office released the following statement on the arrest:

"We are aware of his situation. We will handle the matter internally and appropriately."

Jean-Louis, who is from Wellington, Florida, enrolled at Marshall in January.

The wide receiver originally signed with Miami (Fla.) in February 2012, but attended Fork Union Military Academy in the fall.
