EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Three more Michigan State Spartans football players have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a Nov. 22 fight on campus with fraternity members.

Defensive tackle Oren Wilson pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of assault and battery. Defensive back Chris L. Rucker and receiver Myles White each pleaded guilty to one count. Conspiracy charges against the players were dropped.

All 11 current or former Michigan State players charged in the case have pleaded guilty and await sentencing.

The assault and battery charges have a penalty of up to 93 days in jail. Many of the players could avoid jail time.
