Two Ball State players arrested on theft charges

MUNCIE, Ind. -- Two Ball State University football players
from Georgia face preliminary theft charges for allegedly stealing
three laptop computers from a campus dormitory of the Indiana
school.

Nineteen-year-old Eulas Jerrel Taylor III and
18-year-old Brandon Houston of Cartersville were being held without
bond Tuesday on preliminary charges of burglary and possession of
stolen property.

Ball State police arrested the pair Friday about three hours
before Taylor was supposed to leave with Ball State's football team
for Saturday's game at Central Michigan.

Cardinals coach Brady Hoke said both players were suspended
indefinitely.

Taylor started Ball State's first four games and five of the
first six at cornerback. He made 16 tackles, including five against
both Eastern Michigan and North Dakota State. He had one sack and
one pass breakup. Houston, a linebacker, is redshirting and hasn't
played in a game this year.
