Alabama has barred three of its college football players from campus after their arrest on robbery charges earlier this week.

The players are suspended from school pending a review conducted by faculty members of the Student Judicial Board, university spokeswoman Deborah Lane said Friday.

Defensive back Eddie Williams, 20, and linebackers Tyler Hayes and D.J. Pettway, both 18, were prohibited from entering the Tuscaloosa campus. They were charged Monday in robberies of two students on campus.

Williams allegedly punched a student in the face, knocking him unconscious, and stole his laptop computer. About an hour later, Williams allegedly punched another student and stole his wallet while Pettway and Hayes watched him. The three took the student's campus ID card from the wallet and allegedly used it to purchase snacks from a campus vending machine.

Halfback Brent Calloway is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card for using a debit card stolen from one of the victims. He is not believed to have taken part in the robberies and isn't barred from campus.
