CEDAR PARK, Texas -- Police have arrested an all-district Leander football player after they say a four-year-old boy made claims he was sexually assaulted.

According to an arrest affidavit, in July the alleged victim told his mother that Greg Kelley was inappropriate with the boy on two occasions.

It happened at a home on Marysol Trail in Cedar Park that also operated as a daycare. Kelley, 18, had been living in the home since December.

In a police forensics interview on July 23, the boy made the same claims, according to police.

Kelley is now charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. He turned himself in to the Williamson County Jail on Friday, Aug. 9 and was released on a $50,000 bond the same day.

Tuesday Aug. 13 Leander ISD released the following statement about Kelley's arrest: "The district is cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation, and is restricted by federal privacy laws on discussing a student's status and/or discipline."

The Department of Family Protective Services tells KVUE the daycare is under investigation by Child Care Licensing. The daycare owner has voluntarily closed her home for the duration of the investigation.

Kelley announced on June 7 he was verbally committed to play a safety position for the football program at the University of Texas San Antonio, according to KVUE’s exclusive news partner the Austin-American Statesman.

The class of 2014 Leander football player also had offers to Texas State and Rice University, the Statesman reports.
