Marvin Terry, a 3-star defensive end in the 2016 recruiting class, is being held in a Dallas County, Texas, jail on allegations of assault, per David Morrison of the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Terry, who committed to the Missouri Tigers in December, sits No. 31 at his position and No. 496 overall in 247Sports' composite rankings

Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Terry allegedly got into an altercation with the mother of his child:

On Jan. 5, Dallas Police responded to a major disturbance call at the intersection of Bonnie View Road and Marjorie Avenue, where officers spoke to the alleged victim, who said the suspect assaulted her, according to Dallas police officer Carlos Almeida in a case summary released to the Post-Dispatch. The suspect and victim have a child together, the statement said. The victim was treated by Dallas Fire-Rescue Department and was released on the scene. Terry was later arrested on a warrant.

According to Dallas County records, Terry is facing three charges stemming from the incident and being held on $34,500 bond.

Terry had scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas Tech, TCU, Louisville and Miami, among others, per 247Sports. In his last three years at South Oak Cliff High School in Dallas, he recorded 56.5 sacks, 80 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles.

Despite his commitment to the school, Morrison reported Terry didn't sign a letter of intent with Missouri on national signing day. As a result, Missouri head coach Barry Odom is unable to comment publicly regarding Terry's situation, per NCAA bylaws.

Matter reported Missouri "has moved on from Terry's recruitment and he will not be part of the program in the future."
