Former Texas WR Montrel Meander enrolls at Grambling

Posted January 18th, 2016


Former Texas wide receiver Montrel Meander has enrolled at Grambling where he’ll restart his football career after he was cleared on a sexual assault charge last year.

Meander told The News Star he’s “hungry for this second chance.”

Meander never played a snap for Texas. After redshirting in 2013, he was arrested on a felony charge of sexual assault the summer before the 2014 season and was kicked out of school. This past October, the charges were dropped by the district attorney’s office after a jury found another former Texas receiver, Kendall Sanders, not guilty of sexual assault for the same incident.


Meander, of Amarillo, will be eligible to play this fall.
