  Cephus said after his disappointing time at the combine, he made some adjustments to his sprinting style and concentrated on doing the little things to improve his time - even though he believes his game speed is plenty fast to set him up for NFL success. "When I was there, I was just thinking I was going to be free and run. But my style of running is to stand straight up, so I went back and gave myself a couple cues to help me stay down, and I was able to run better, as we know," Cephus said. "I was thankful for that." Cephus also seems to have effectively answered teams' questions about the sexual assault allegations for which he was acquitted in August.

The charges led to his suspension from the team for the entire 2018 season and his expulsion from school before the not guilty verdict allowed him to be reinstated. Asked Friday how he answered personnel executives' questions about the incident and ensuing experience, Cephus replied, "A lot of the questions I got were how did I handle adversity - because I had a lot of it. Who were my go-to people and how did I go through it and how did it shape me. "Everybody did their research on me, and they know the kind of man that I am. They just wanted to hear me open up and really get to know me just by listening to how I present myself. It wasn't that challenging. I enjoyed sharing my story." - Journal Sentinel

  2020 NFL COMBINE INVITE: Quintez Cephus, WR, Wisconsin,...Returning to the field after not playing in 2018, Cephus made 59 catches for 901 yards and seven touchdowns this season, setting career highs and leading the Badgers in all three categories. He recorded strong performances down the stretch of the season, pulling in five catches for 114 yards and a touchdown at Minnesota to help UW clinch the Big Ten West Division title and then making seven grabs for 122 yards vs. Ohio State in the Big Ten Football Championship Game. He made another seven receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown vs. Oregon in the Rose Bowl. As a sophomore in 2017, Cephus caught 30 passes for 501 yards and six touchdowns before suffering a season-ending leg injury that forced him to miss the Badgers' final five games. The Macon, Georgia, native appeared in all 14 games as a freshman in 2016, making four catches for 94 yards. - Wisconsin Football

  Wisconsin is losing its top running back and now its top wide receiver to the NFL. Quintez Cephus announced Monday on Twitter and Instagram that he will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft. "I'm excited to put my name in for the draft and to have a chance to play at the highest level,” Cephus said. The announcement came three days after record-setting junior tailback Jonathan Taylor announced his decision to enter the draft. The 6-foot-1, 207-pound Cephus led Wisconsin in receptions (59), receiving yards (901) and touchdown receptions (seven) in 2019. Cephus missed the final five games of the Badgers' 2017 campaign because of a broken right leg and did not play at all in 2018 after being expelled from school following sexual assault charges. Cephus was acquitted by a jury in August, reinstated by school officials and was ruled academically eligible for 2019. - AP College Football

  Quintez Cephus has been through a lot. The junior wide receiver missed the final five games of Wisconsin's 2017 campaign because of a broken right leg and did not play at all last year after being expelled from school following sexual assault charges. Cephus was acquitted by a jury last month, reinstated by school officials and was ruled academically eligible for last week's opener at South Florida. After hauling in only three catches for 39 yards in the Badgers' 49-0 victory last week, the Georgia native finally had his breakout game at Wisconsin. Cephus scored his first two touchdowns of the season, Jonathan Taylor rushed for three touchdowns and caught another, and No. 17 Wisconsin cruised past Central Michigan 61-0 in its home opener Saturday. - AP College Football

  Wisconsin receiver Quintez Cephus has returned to practice and his coach says pending eligibility issues stem from a lack of credits because he was expelled amid sexual assault allegations this spring. Cephus was charged a year ago with sexually assaulting two women in his apartment in April 2018. University officials expelled him before the spring semester ended, but a jury acquitted Cephus earlier this month.

Chancellor Rebecca Blank allowed him to return to school and rejoin the Badgers on Monday although the athletic department says he can't play in a game until the undisclosed eligibility issues are resolved. Chryst told reporters Wednesday that Cephus practiced with the team and that Cephus' issues relate to a lack of credits. He declined to elaborate. - AP College Football

  Former Wisconsin receiver Quintez Cephus has been cleared to return to school after a jury acquitted him of sexual assault charges. University of Wisconsin-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank announced the decision Monday. The school says it obtained information that wasn't provided during a student conduct review. The statement said sanctions against Cephus have been "reduced" and his expulsion has been lifted. The statement didn't elaborate. Cephus was suspended from the football team in August 2018 after he was charged. He was expelled from the university earlier this year for violating its nonacademic misconduct policies. A jury acquitted him of the charges Aug. 2. His attorneys have been pressuring Blank to let him return. - AP College Football

  The attorney for former Wisconsin football player Quintez Cephus says university officials are sending a "clear message" they don't want the former Badgers wide receiver back despite his acquittal in a sexual assault case. Attorney Stephen Meyer said Monday that discussions have collapsed. University spokeswoman Meredith McGlone said Monday she couldn't comment due to privacy rules. Cephus filed a petition for readmission last week, just days after a jury found him not guilty of sexually assaulting two students who said he had raped them. Meyer says the university has made clear it won't make a decision until "well after the semester has started." - AP College Football

  Former Wisconsin Badgers football player Quintez Cephus says going back to school is his top priority after a jury found him not guilty last week of sexual assault charges. The wide receiver tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in a story published Tuesday that he doesn't know if he will return to the University of Wisconsin. The 21-year-old from Macon, Georgia, was suspended from the football team last summer and expelled from UW last semester after being accused of sexually assaulting two women. A jury found him not guilty on Friday. Cephus says his lawyers will work with UW officials to "to clean up my record" so he can return to school. - AP College Football
