AUSTIN (KXAN) —  A Travis County grand jury decided there was enough evidence against two former University of Texas Football Players to send them to trial on sexual assault charges. Montrel Meander and Kendall Sanders were indicted Dec. 8 following their July 24 arrests after the victim came forward accusing the men of assaulting her and photographing the ordeal.

Both men were subsequently suspended from the UT squad.

Officers who investigated the claim noted Meander and Sanders began texting each other “trying to get their story straight” during their interviews with investigators.

Sanders was anticipated to be a starter for the 2014 season. He scored a touchdown against Kansas State in 2013. That year he logged 37 receptions for 361 yards earning him third place among the team’s receivers. He was previously suspended from the team’s opening game against New Mexico State in 2013 following an arrest for DWI. The charges were dismissed in May 2013.
