 AUSTIN (KVUE) - Two University of Texas football players have been charged with sexual assault.

Kendall Sanders, a junior wide receiver from Athens, is charged with sexual assault and improper photography. Montrel Meander, a sophomore wide receiver from Amarillo, is charged with sexual assault.

Officials say the charges come from an incident on June 21 at the San Jacinto Dormitory.

According to KVUE's partners at the Austin American-Statesman, Sanders and Meander met the alleged victim on Sixth Street, then went back to Meander's room in the San Jacinto dorm and had what was described as consensual sex. The Statesman says the players asked the alleged victim if she was OK, and she told them she was. However, according to UT police records, a sexual assault was reported at the dorm at 3:43 a.m.

The Statesman reports Texas coach Charlie Strong said that both players would be suspended if charges were filed.

KVUE reported in June that two football players were being questioned in the alleged assault, but UT police would not release their names at the time.

Neither player has been arrested.
