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 history.
Morgan, from Davie, Fla., caught six passes for 57 yards this season.
