Press Connects, March 6, 2013

Two Syracuse football players are among four university students charged with campus burglaries.

Syracuse police say junior defensive end Markus Pierce-Brewster and junior defensive tackle Davon Walls were charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor petit larceny in connection with the burglary of an apartment Feb. 23. Both players are accused of stealing a flat screen television, an Xbox gaming system, two iPods and Xbox games while students were asleep inside the apartments.


Pierce-Brewster transferred into the program before last season from City College of San Francisco and appeared in 12 games, recording 30 tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery.

Walls, from Brooklyn, appeared in three games last year after transferring from Coahoma Community College in Mississippi.
