Pierce-Brewster, Walls dismissed from team for violation of team rules
Defensive end Markus Pierce-Brewster and defensive tackle Davon Walls have both been dismissed from the Syracuse football team for a violation of team rules, SU Athletics announced in a press release Wednesday.
The defensive linemen were arrested on charges of burglarizing South Campus apartments on Feb. 23. Both were charged with second-degree burglary and petit larceny after allegedly burglarizing an apartment on the 400 block of Winding Ridge Road while the residents were sleeping, according to court documents. They were accused of stealing a flat-screen television, an Xbox gaming system, two iPods and Xbox games, worth a total of approximately $950.
Pierce-Brewster, a junior, recorded 30 total tackles in 12 games last season, his first with the Orange after transferring from the City College of San Francisco. He added eight tackles for a loss and one sack and was expected to be a major contributor in the Syracuse defense’s front seven. Walls, also a junior, played in three games last season after transferring from Coahoma Community (Miss.) College, but didn’t record any tackles.
