NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The former Vanderbilt football players charged with rape now have an initial court date.

An arraignment will be Aug. 21 for Brandon Vandenburg, 20, of Indio, Calif.; Cory Batey, 19, of Nashville; Brandon Banks, 19, of Brandywine, Md.; and Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie, 19, of Woodville, Miss.

They each have been charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery involving an unconscious student at a campus dormitory in June.

Banks, who turned himself in Sunday night, was released Monday afternoon after posting $250,000 bail. McKenzie was released Saturday on $50,000 bond. Vandenburg and Batey are being held on $350,000 bond.

Authorities say the investigation of the June 23 incident at the Gillette House dormitory is ongoing.

The players were dismissed from the team June 29.
