Jalen Carter has been charged with reckless driving and racing in connection with a crash that killed a teammate and a recruiting staff member.
An arrest warrant, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, alleges Carter was racing his 2021 Jeep Trackhawk against the 2021 Ford Expedition driven by the recruiting staffer, 24-year-old Chandler LeCroy, which led to the Jan. 15 wreck.
Devin Willock, who was an offensive lineman for the Bulldogs, and LeCroy were killed in what police initially reported as a single-vehicle accident.
Reckless driving and racing are both misdemeanors in Georgia.
The SUV driven by LeCroy was traveling about 104 mph shortly before the crash.
According to documents and recordings of 911 calls reviewed by the Journal-Constitution, at least two vehicles driven by Georgia football players had been at the scene, including the Jeep driven by Carter, who left the scene before police or emergency personnel arrived.
Carter returned to the scene less than two hours later, according to the paper, which reported that he was asked by police whether he had been racing the vehicle that crashed.
Carter is the No. 1 prospect in the draft, according to ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.
