Two more Michigan State football players have been indefinitely suspended after being charged in connection with a Nov. 22 assault at a campus residence hall.

Junior defensive tackle Oren Wilson and redshirt freshman receiver Myles White both face misdemeanor charges of assault and conspiracy to commit assault. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio on Tuesday indefinitely suspended both players from "all football-related activities."

Wilson and White must turn themselves in for arraignment.

"As with the previously suspended players, their status with the team will be re-evaluated on a case-by-case basis as their legal issues are resolved," Dantonio's statement reads.

Police have now charged 11 football players with assault and conspiracy, and Michigan State has suspended four others who were present at the incident, which took place following a fraternity potluck event. Two players, Glenn Winston and Roderick Jenrette, were thrown off the team while two others who face charges, Ashton Leggett and Jamiihr Williams, will transfer to other schools.

Leggett pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor assault on Jan. 14 as part of a plea deal in which the conspiracy charge was dropped.

Wilson started for the Spartans in the Valero Alamo Bowl on Jan. 2, while White was suspended for the game after being cited for public urination the night before the residence-hall incident.

Dantonio allowed the suspended players to attend a team meeting earlier this month, but the players' ultimate status with the team will be determined after the legal process concludes.
