RAMSEY, N.J. — Don Bosco 2012 graduate Leonte Carroo was drafted by the Miami Dolphins Friday night in the third round (86th overall).

The 22-year-old, who worked out at Good Energy Training in Allendale, played four years at Rutgers University where he played all 13 games his freshman year.

In a breakout sophomore season, Carroo — who was part of two mythical national championship teams at Don Bosco — played in 10 games, caught 28 passes for 478 yards and nine touchdowns.

Carroo upped his NFL draft stock as a junior after racking up 55 catches for 1,086 yards and 10 touchdowns. His first game his senior year, Carroo became Rutgers’ all-time leader in touchdown receptions.

Trouble found Carroo that September when he was suspended indefinitely following an arrest and charge of simple assault. The altercation occurred when Carroo was accused of slamming a woman to the ground on Rutgers campus, reports .

The incident factored in to Carroo falling to the third round in this year’s NFL draft.

Charges were later dropped and Carroo was reinstated that October. He played in eight games his senior year, recording 39 receptions for 809 yards and 10 touchdowns.
