The The 20-year-old female student who accused Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her will now meet with investigators, according to one of her attorneys.

Kelly Naqi of ESPN, reports another part of the he said, she said story. This story revolves around one of the men in Ben\’s entourage, guarding the door to the bathroom and not letting a friend of the accuser past him.

Ed Thompson has reported that William & Mary defensive end Adrian Tracy and cornerback Kareem Jackson from Alabama will also visit the Steelers in the coming weeks.
