Texas Tech WR only expects to miss first half of first game

Texas Tech Red Raiders wide receiver Reginald Davis was arrested on a marijuana charge back in May, but no major disciplinary action has been taken by the football program as of yet. If one were to ask Davis what he thought was going to happen, the answer would be shocking.

According to Don Williams of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Davis seems to think he’ll get off lightly.

“From what I’ve heard, I may miss the first half of the Sam Houston State game,” Davis said Tuesday, referring to the season opener. “It just made me look at life from a different angle. I should be grateful for everything I have.”

Davis didn’t name his sources, but it seems off that he would just miss the season opener on September 5 against the Southland’s Sam Houston State Bearkats, an FCS opponent. He’s competing for a regular role in the offense with fellow junior Dylan Cantrell, and his offseason arrest is likely to net him a suspension of more than just the first half of one game since he isn’t exactly someone Texas Tech absolutely cannot win without. In two seasons in Lubbock, Davis has 44 receptions for 518 yards and eight touchdowns.

Campus Sports will update Davis’ situation as more information becomes available.
