The preliminary hearing for former Longhorn football wide receiver Montrel Meander, who was charged earlier this summer with a second-degree felony for sexual assault, was rescheduled again Thursday.

The hearing was reset to 9 a.m. on Nov. 10, according to Travis County District Court Bailiff Anthony Casarez.

This is the third time the preliminary hearing has been rescheduled. It was originally set for Aug. 7 and then delayed to Sept. 2.

Meander was arrested in July, along with former wide receiver Kendall Sanders, after allegedly sexually assaulting a female student in San Jacinto Residence Hall. Both Meander and Sanders were later released on bail.

If convicted, both players could possibly face a sentence of up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Immediately following the arrests, head coach Charlie Strong suspended both players from the team for an indefinite amount of time. On Aug. 3, he announced that they had been dismissed from the team because of the charges against them.

Sanders’ hearing is scheduled for Friday at 9 a.m.
