Michigan State commit Donovan Winter did not send his letter of intent to the Spartans on Wednesday morning. He's in jail.

Police in Florida arrested Winter, 18, on Monday night and charged the Bishop Moore Catholic High School (Orlando) senior with burglary and larceny of a firearm, according to online records.

He is being held on $2,000 bond and will be required to wear a GPS monitoring device. He has been ordered to appear in court on March 7. He remained jailed as of Wednesday evening.

Bishop Moore's head coach told the Orlando Sentinel that Winter will not sign a letter of intent Wednesday. The newspaper also reported that Winter is no longer a student at the school.

Winter, a three-star defensive end prospect, committed to Michigan State in June. The university is not allowed to comment on prospective student-athletes until the school receives their letters of intent.
