Syracuse has suspended defensive end Jaquwan Nelson and safety Devon Clarke after the two were arrested and charged with burglary. The duo were arrested following an alleged incident that took place on Dec. 26.
Nelson is charged with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree larceny, while Clarke has been charged with second-degree burglary and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. The two redshirt freshmen are accused of entering a residence on campus and stealing a laptop, a Playstation 4, and two pairs of Yeezy boots. The Yeezy boots, designed by rapper Kanye West, often retail for more than $400, and sometimes cost up to $800.
So, you know, they aren't cheap.
Both Nelson and Clark were three-star members of Syracuse' 2016 recruiting class. Neither played during the 2016 season as they took redshirt years. It's unclear whether or not their suspensions will be lifted in time for spring practice, which begins March 21 at Syracuse.
