Seton Hall commit Jerron Wilbut arrested, charged with robbery

"You have got to be kidding me." - Kevin Willard - USA TODAY Sports

There is never a dull moment in the world of Seton Hall Basketball.

Jerron Wilbut, a Class of 2013 Seton Hall commit, has been arrested and charged with robbery. Wilbut, 19, was arrested along with two acquaintances this afternoon and held on $100,000 bail. They are being accused of meeting someone they knew yesterday afternoon and robbing them of their money at gunpoint. Wilbut remains in custody -- he would have to post a $10,000 bail before being released.

Although Jerron Wilbut goes to school at St. John's Northwestern Military Academy in Wisconsin, he is originally from Downers Grove, Illinois. Downers Grove is a very short distance from Clarendon Hills, which is where the alleged robbery took place.

Kelechukwu Akuba, who was arrested with Wilbut, was charged with felony aggravated battery of a police officer, resisting arrest & retail theft last summer. The other individual in custody, Leverenzel Booth, appears to be pictured in one of Jerron Wilbut's pictures on his Twitter account. With that in mind, it's hard to believe that this was just a misunderstanding.

Seton Hall's other 2013 commit, Aquille Carr, was arrested for domestic assault last August.
