Three Utah State football players have been suspended indefinitely by the program after being charged with two burglaries that occurred in Logan, Utah in December.

According to the Utah State athletic department, linebacker Troy Murray, linebacker Kevin Meitzenheimer, and defensive back Jay Brown have been suspended indefinitely from the team. All three are redshirt freshmen.

Former player Dayshawn Littleton was also arrested. Murray and Brown were arrested on April 4 and 5 after police officers traced stolen electronics after they allegedly pawned them. Neither player participated in the Aggies’ spring game on April 8, and they were suspended by coach Matt Wells after they were arrested.

Meitzenheimer and Littleton were both arrested on April 27 after they attempted to prevent charges against their teammates. They both allegedly attempted to hit a witness with a car, and they threatened to return and shoot the witness. Logan police found an assault rifle in the car when they went to arrest the two suspects.

None of the players contributed to Utah State in 2016, and they weren’t expected to be key contributors in 2017.
