AUSTIN — Former Athens standout and Texas Longhorn sophomore wide receiver Kendall Sanders was arrested Saturday morning on a driving while intoxicated charge by Texas A&M police.

Sanders was booked into the Brazos County Detention Center at 5:10 a.m. and later released on a $3,000 bond.

Texas Longhorn head coach Mack Brown issued a statement regarding Sanders arrest Sunday morning.

“We're aware of Kendall's situation, have talked with him and his family, and are disappointed any time one of our players is accused of wrongdoing," Mack Brown said. "We take a strong stance against drinking and driving and will continue to monitor this situation to get more details. Following the completion of the legal process, we will do what's best for the university, Kendall and the team. One thing we have great pride in about our program is our family atmosphere and there also will be discipline handled within our family."

Sanders is a favorite for the No. 3 receiver spot behind Mike Davis and Jaxon Shipley.
