Princeton Harlan, 18-year-old star quarterback for Mt. Pleasant High school in Maury County, Tenn., is out of jail this morning after posting a $100,000 bond.

Harlan who is being recruited by SEC schools, was arrested Wednesday and charged with rape of a child under 13.

The other two team members, ages 16 and 17, are also in trouble despite being under the age of 18. Their names have not been released because they are minors.

The two younger boys have also been charged with rape of a child under the age of 13.
