Syracuse coach Scott Shafer has dismissed Markus Pierce-Brewster and Davon Walls for violating team rules.
Both players were charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor petit larceny in connection with the burglary of a campus apartment in late February.
On Tuesday, Shafer said he would let the legal system play out before making a decision on the two players, but he said that decision would be one that was best for the team.
Pierce-Brewster, a starter at defensive end, 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, N.Y., appeared in three games last year after transferring from Coahoma Community College in Mississippi.
The Orange start spring practice next week.
