Indiana University football player arrested for child molestation


RANDOLPH COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — A freshman football player at Indiana University has been arrested for child molestation.

19-year-old Kiante Enis of Saratoga was arrested with two counts of child molesting, a level three felony.

According to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, a report was made regarding a relationship between Enis and a child that is 13 years old or younger.

RCSO said both Enis and the child admitted to at least two consensual encounters.

IU released a statement saying that Enis was released from the team.

“Indiana Football has dismissed freshman Kiante Enis from the program effective immediately.”

Enis was booked into the Randolph County Jail on a $20,000 bond.

Enis is a wide receiver with IU.

“It’s sad that happens when they wanted him to be here as a part of our team and represent IU as a whole,” Student Madison Cowden said.

“To see something like that happen and such an extreme thing happen to the football team, it’s a tough break, Kiante was supposed to be a really good player,” Student Nicholas Hunt said, “He should have known better, he should have used better judgement on his part.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
