DALLAS, TX - Tenaha native and Texas Tech wide receiver Reginald Davis didn't end the school year the way he would have wanted.
In May, Davis was arrested by Lubbock Police on suspicion of possession of marijuana during a traffic stop. Police allegedly found less than two ounces of marijuana.
Red Raiders head football Coach Kliff Kingsbury was at the Big 12 media days this week in Dallas and addressed this issue with reporters. Although there will be some type of punishment, Kingsbury is still expecting some great things from Davis this year.
"We've been handling it in-house and there will be some punishment moving forward, but I'm not going to announce that just yet. He'll practice and we'll see about his playing time from there," said Kingsbury. "Reginald is a guy who was a quarterback in high school and has been developing into a wide receiver. He had a great spring and has two years left. He has to maximize those because he has the ability. He's just got to do it on the field."
Davis is a redshirt junior who has played in 25 games for Tech, recording 44 catches for 518 yards and eight touchdowns along the way.
"He's worked tirelessly ever since he's been there but he's picked up his work ethic. He's studying more film, he's always up there watching film and he looks great. I know he's amped up to compete," said Kingsbury.
