MADISON (WKOW) -- Diamond K. Taylor, a former University of Wisconsin basketball recruit, pled guilty to burglarizing dorm rooms. 

The former recruit will participate in a first-offenders program. If the Bolingbrook, Ill., native completes the program the burglary charge will be dismissed.

Prosecutors say two recruits, Taylor and Jeremy C. Glover, walked into the university dorms in Sept. and stole items including small electronics and cash.

Taylor was offered a basketball scholarship at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale after he left UW-Madison. His lawyer says a plea hearing Oct. 29.
