HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Colgate running back Jordan Scott and
another player are facing felony burglary charges in connection
with an incident on campus.
Scott and wide receiver David Morgan were charged Sunday with
second-degree burglary, arraigned Monday in Hamilton Village Court
and released on $10,000 bond, a school spokesman said Wednesday.
Both were suspended from the football team but were still
enrolled in school, said Colgate spokesman Charlie Melichar, who
declined to detail the incident.
Melichar said the academic status of both players would be up to
the school's Student Conduct Board. Their future on the football
team will be determined after the outcome of that review, which is
unlikely to happen until students return for the spring semester
and the criminal case progresses, he said.
Neither player could immediately be reached for comment.
Scott, from Hyattsville, Md., led the Football Championship
Subdivision (formally Division I-AA) in rushing with 1,875 yards
rushing -- the third highest total in school history. The junior's
career rushing total is 4,475 yards, the second highest in Raiders
Morgan, from Davie, Fla., caught six passes for 57 yards this
