MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-Madison has reinstated expelled wide receiver Quintez Cephus following an acquittal on a sexual assault charge.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported last week that Cephus directed his attorneys, Stephen Meyer and Kathleen Stilling, to file the petition for reinstatement.

The 21-year-old Cephus was found not guilty of second- and third-degree sexual assault. He told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he wants to play football again.

Cephus was suspended from the Badgers and later expelled from school after being charged.
