Wisconsin suspends top WR in wake of sexual assault charges

Wisconsin wide receiver Quintez Cephus announced over the weekend that he is taking a leave of absence from the football program, and his absence from the team is no longer voluntary.

Ed Treleven of the Wisconsin State Journal reports that Cephus was charged with second- and third-degree sexual assault of two women on Monday. The women said they were intoxicated when Cephus sexually assaulted them and that the 20-year-old and his roommate, teammate Danny Davis, laughed and took photos of them.

Davis, also a wide receiver for Wisconsin, could also face charges stemming from the incident, according to District Attorney Ismael Ozanne.

A criminal complaint obtained by the Wisconsin State Journal states that Cephus told investigators he had consensual sex with one of the women and said, “It was all good. She was all into it.”

Shortly after the news broke of the charges against Cephus, Wisconsin announced in a statement that the junior has been suspended.

Cephus caught 30 passes for 501 yards and six touchdowns last season. He was expected to be Wisconsin’s top wide receiver in 2018.
