Vandenburg and three other former football players, Corey Batey, Brandon Banks and Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie, are charged with raping an unconscious female student in Vandenburg's on-campus dorm room in June.
Vandenburg and Batey will go on trial next August. Banks and McKenzie will likely testify against the two.
Former wide receiver Chris Boyd entered a conditional guilty plea for his role in attempting to cover up the crime. As a part of his plea deal, Boyd must also testify against his former teammates.
Joseph Quinzio, also a friend of Vandenburg's, is additionally charged with tampering with electronic evidence following the rape. He remains in California pending extradition to Middle Tennessee.
