FAYETTEVILLE – Catrell Wallace, a Bryant High School student and state champion Bryant  linebacker signed in December to play football at the University of Arkansas, was arrested Monday morning  in Benton  in connection  with an alleged  second-degree sexual assault  and alleged  tampering.

The alleged assault was reported to have occurred Jan. 1.

Wallace turned himself  in Monday morning  after an arrest warrant was issued.  He was  released Monday afternoon awaiting further investigation.

Arkansas head football coach Sam Pittman, shortly after becoming the Razorbacks head  coach, signing  Wallace as a touted recruit to report to the UA’s Fayetteville campus this summer, issued a statement Monday.

“We are gathering information and (are) in contact with the proper authorities regarding the situation,” Pittman said in a statement.  “Once we have additional information, we will make a determination on his status with our program.”
