Two Texas Longhorns wide receivers, Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander, were arrested and charged with felony sexual assault on Thursday. They were charged after a female student says she was raped in campus dorm room back in June.

Here's more, via ESPN:

Wide receivers Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander were in custody at the university police station. According to an arrest affidavit, Sanders and Meander texted each other during earlier interviews with police to "get their story straight," and Sanders also faces a charge of improper photography tied to the alleged assault on June 21.

First-year head coach Charlie Strong says he has suspended both players.

"We've been monitoring and addressing the situation with Kendall and Montrel since it was brought to our attention," Strong said in a statement released by the school. "It's been made clear to everyone on our team that treating women with respect is one of our core values, and I'm extremely disappointed that two young men in our program have been accused of not doing that."

Both men can get a prison sentence of two-to-20 years.

"It's a shame that a mere allegation can affect a young man's life to the extent this will," said Sanders' attorney, Brian Roark. "Kendall Sanders is innocent, though, and eventually, that will be proven."

We'll see what happens.
