Navy is investigating three members of its football program who are accused of sexually assaulting a female student, military.com reported Thursday.
The academy is not releasing the names of the players involved, details of the alleged assault or when the investigation began.
"Naval Academy leadership is monitoring the progress of this investigation and evaluating the appropriate options for adjudication," Naval Academy spokesman Cmdr. John Schofield said in a statement.
"It is completely inappropriate to make any other public comment on this investigation or any ongoing investigation as we risk compromising the military justice process."
President Barack Obama spoke to the academy's graduating class last week about the necessity of following its "inner compass" because of the increasing number of reported sexual assaults in the military.
Obama said armed forces members who commit acts of assault "threaten the trust and discipline which makes our military strong."
