Wisconsin recruits Diamond Taylor and Jeremy Glover were arrested and jailed Sunday on tentative charges of burglary and underage drinking.

Taylor and Glover are suspected in the thefts of iPods, a cell phone, and over $400 cash from “numerous” dorm rooms, UW police said in a news release.

The two also were suspended from the Wisconsin men’s basketball team after violating the UW Department of Athletics’ Student-Athlete Discipline Policy.

UW Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez announced the suspension Sunday in a press release.

Taylor and Glover are “suspended from competition and practice pending the availability of further information relating to their cases.”

Though they are suspended, the two athletes will remain on official squad lists during the suspension and may continue to receive medical, academic, and weight training support.

Taylor, a 6'2" guard from Bolingbrook, Ill., is the 30th-ranked shooting guard in the 2009 freshman class, according to Rivals.com. 

Glover, a 6'2" guard, is a walk-on from Haymarket, Va.
