Just after 4 p.m. CT on Monday afternoon, Quintez Cephus and his two lawyers, Kathleen Stilling and Stephen Meyer, took to a bank of microphones and called on the University of Wisconsin and Chancellor Becky Blank to allow Cephus back into school.

Meyer and Stilling did most of the talking and made it clear that they wanted the University to “do what’s right.”

Cephus spoke briefly and thanked his teammates, friends and family for supporting him over the past year. He then answered a couple of questions, including one where he was asked if he was “angry at Wisconsin.”

There were well over a dozen current UW players standing behind Cephus during the whole press conference, including Jonathan Taylor, Tyler Biadasz, Chris Orr, Jack Coan and Garrett Groshek.

Cephus’ trial for alleged sexual assault ended on Friday August, 2nd when he was found not guilty on all charges. There has been an online campaign from players, both current and former, to #LetQTPlay and seven players sent Blank a letter on Monday asking her to allow Cephus to come back to school.

You can find the entire letter at the end of the Journal Sentinel’s article here.

When asked about what the University has said in terms of a timeline, Meyer did not mince words.

For their part, the University denied Meyer’s claims and issued a statement of their own Monday afternoon.

Cephus was suspended from the football team right before the 2018 season and expelled from UW last semester due to Title IX violations. In 2017, the native of Macon, Georgia had 30 catches for 501 and six touchdowns and was unanimously named honorable mention All-Big Ten and was an Academic All-Big Ten team member as well.

If he is admitted back to school, head coach Paul Chryst has already made his feelings clear on the matter of Cephus returning to the team.

We will have more on this story as news develops.
