TUSCULOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama has barred three football players from campus after their arrest on robbery charges.
University spokeswoman Deborah Lane said Friday the players are suspended from school pending a judicial review expected to be done by late next week.
Eddie Williams, Tyler Hayes and D.J. Pettway have been charged in separate robberies of two students on campus early Monday morning.
Court records show Williams and Hayes have admitted to the crimes.
All three players were indefinitely suspended from the football team. Teammate Brent Calloway, also suspended indefinitely, is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card for using a debit card stolen from one of the students. He isn't barred from campus.
Williams' attorney has asked a judge to let the player return home to Panama City, Fla.
