MANSFIELD, Connecticut — Three members of UConn's 2019 football team face charges stemming from a November burglary on campus. 

Running back Khyon Gillespie and defensive backs Oneil Robinson and Ryan Carroll are accused of stealing a television, video game systems and clothes from a dorm. 

The three sophomores are charged with burglary, larceny and making false statements. 

Gillespie and Robinson turned themselves in to police last week. Caroll was charged Tuesday. 

Robinson and Carroll previously announced their intentions to transfer from UConn. Gillespie has been suspended from the team. The school says it is aware of the situation and is cooperating with authorities.  

"We are aware of the situation regarding three student-athletes, two of whom are no longer members of the football team.  We have been in communication with the appropriate parties and will continue to cooperate with the authorities throughout this process," said the UConn Athletic Department in a written statement.
