'High school basketballer' arrested after real age comes to light

'High school basketballer' arrested after real age comes to light

He also allegedly had his eye on some of the girls at the campus.

As a student, Gilstrap-Portley dated a 14-year old girl.

No. 14 for Hillcrest was a man among boys - literally. He graduated North Mesquite High School in 2011.

The woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said she didn't approve of her daughter's relationship with the man they both knew as the 17-year-old Rashun.

The school administrator apologized to parents and said the district would work to prevent a similar situation in the future. Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area in mid-August.

'If it's happening at Hillcrest, then it could be happening somewhere else. That time, he said he wasn't a victim of the hurricane and instead told campus administrators he was homeless. "He was fairly savvy to be able to utilize that type of position, knowing that we were accepting Harvey students". "And he took advantage of this opportunity to enroll in Hillcrest".

But after nine months in the Dallas school system, one of Gilstrap-Portley's former coaches tipped off authorities.

But Gilstrap-Portley is an adult, after all, and that might result in more charges.

In October, Gilstrap-Portley transferred to Hillcrest High School, where he was voted the District 11-5A offensive player of the year by coaches.

"So it's in their hands right now", Hinojosa said of the UIL. When issues of concern occur we feel it is important to share them with you, so you are aware of the facts.

But the case may be more serious than just a grown man posing as a teen to play ball.

He enrolled as a freshman and got away with it the entire year, until just a few weeks ago when someone recognized him. "I don't know ... how [the school] let this slip through the cracks", she tells the Morning News. Police are investigating those allegations. "That's why I was shocked when I heard that all this came out, because that's not the kid that I knew".

"He was always respectful to me", she told the newspaper. "She's not going to be safe at all", he said.

I don't understand the desire to go back to high school, myself.

He has no previous criminal history. "I never had any problems out of him. I said what school you from, and he said Skyline".

Gilstrap-Portley's plan worked because he not only presented himself as a victim of the hurricane, but also as being homeless with an absentee mother.
