HAMILTON, N.Y. (AP) -Star Colgate running back Jordan Scott and a teammate were charged with entering a dorm room and rifling through a desk drawer.
Scott and wide receiver David Morgan were charged Sunday with second-degree burglary and pleaded not guilty at their arraignment Monday. The 20-year-old juniors were released after posting bail and the case was adjourned until Jan. 7.
Two female residents on Saturday heard the intruders, who ran out when confronted, according to a police report. Hamilton Police Chief James Tilbe said the students identified Scott and Morgan through photos on a university Web site.
``At this point, we can't find anything they took,'' Tilbe said. ``According to what they said, they were trying doors, found it open, and just started to go through the desk drawer when the girls approached them. I don't understand it.''
The players were suspended from the team but are still enrolled in school, Colgate spokesman Charlie Melichar said Wednesday. He added that their academic status will be determined by the Student Conduct Board. Their future with the team will hinge on board's review.
Coach Dick Biddle did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press. Scott is represented by attorney Paul Hadley and Morgan by Neal Rose. Hadley did not return a call from the AP and Rose declined comment.
Scott, of Hyattsville, Md., finished the season with 1,875 yards rushing to lead the Football Championship Subdivision. It also was the third-best rushing total in school history. Morgan, of Davie, Fla., caught six passes for 57 yards in 2007.
