The Longhorns suffered some more bad news at the wide receiver position on Saturday.

The Texas Longhorns have already suspended one young wide receiver with legal problems this spring and may have to do so with another one after sophomore Kendall Sanders was arrested on Saturday:

A search of Brazos County records confirms that Sanders was arrested early on Saturday morning by Texas A&M police.

As a result, Sanders may face a suspension in the fall, though such a charge should not threaten his longterm status with the team.

The leading candidate to take over the no. 3 receiver position following the suspension of fellow sophomore Cayleb Jones for aggravated assault, Sanders registered two catches for 15 yards as a true freshman in limited playing time, but was expected to step into the role vacated by Marquise Goodwin and flashed in the Orange-White game when he took a short pass, broke a tackle, and went 24 yards for a touchdown.
