Two Texas football players have been charged with sexual assault in a case in which the facts are “confusing”, the Austin American-Statesman reported Thursday.
Junior receiver Kendall Sanders and redshirt freshman receiver Montrel Meander have not been arrested for the incident that occurred June 21. Sanders also is charged with improper photography. The sexual assault is a second degree felony.
Sources told the American-Statesman that the two players met the alleged victim and went to Meander’s San Jacinto dorm room on campus and the three had consensual sex.

The improper photography charge comes from Sanders attempting to record what was happening on his cellphone.
After the three had sex, according to the American-Statesman, the players thought everything was OK and when a female knocked on the door to question if everything was OK, the alleged victim acknowledged.
But a sexual assault was reported at 3:43 a.m., according to University of Texas Police.
Texas officials have been aware of the incident since it was reported June 22.
Update, 4:33 p.m. — Texas spokesman John Bianco said the football program is aware of the situation and gathering information. Bianco said he expects to issue a statement from coach Mack Brown after practice ends this evening.
Earlier Senior safety Christian Scott was arrested early this afternoon on a Class A misdemeanor assault with bodily injury charge. He’s being held in the Travis County Jail.
Details on the incident were not immediately available, but Scott was arrested in the 300 block of E. Yager Lane, at approximately 1 p.m.
