Texas Tech defensive back Corey Turner and wide receiver Ronnie Burns were charged with felony assault Thursday in Lubbock, Tex. and suspended from the Copper Bowl-bound team.
Coach Spike Dykes said he reprimanded four other players charged with misdemeanors stemming from a Dec. 3 party.
Turner, a 20-year-old freshman, and Burns, a 20-year-old sophomore, were charged with two counts each of assault on a police officer, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Dykes said he reprimanded split end Sheldon Bass, tailback Phillip Hayes, cornerback Kenny Haywood and flanker Stacy Mitchell. Their misdemeanor charges:
--Hayes, 19, hindering apprehension and resisting arrest.
--Haywood, 22, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct for loud and profane language.
--Mitchell, 20, hindering apprehension.
--Bass, 20, criminal trespass.
Two other players and former All-American Lloyd Hill also were arrested but were not charged.
California linebacker Duane Clemons said he will forego his senior year and enter the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-6, 255-pound Clemons ranked second in the nation with 26 tackles for loss this season.
He led Cal with 10 1/2 sacks, nine pass deflections, and seven blocked kicks and was a second-team selection on the Associated Press All-America team.
