LAJ’s Don Williams is reporting that Texas Tech redshirt freshman QB Jett Duffey has been suspended from Texas Tech University for the spring and summer semester:
Tech spokesman Chris Cook said Duffey’s suspension was imposed by the university rather than the football program, but declined to detail reasons for the action.
“There is protected information that I can’t share at this time,” Cook said.
Asked Duffey’s future as a Tech student and Tech athlete, Cook said, “That, I couldn’t tell you. I can tell you he is suspended only for those two semesters. He is eligible to return in the fall.”
There were rumors late in 2016 that something had happened with Duffey, but there seemed to be little information about what that “something” actually was. Well, it was enough for Duffey to be suspended, not by the football team, but by the University for the spring and summer. This is reminiscent of the suspension of Devin Lauderdale last year.
