Quintez Cephus said he is eligible to play football again for the University of Wisconsin Madison.

He posted about the move on Twitter.

Cephus is a wide receiver for the Badgers. He was acquitted in criminal court on sexual assault charges earlier this month.

On Monday, UW Chancellor Rebecca Blank announced the university would readmit the 21-year-old following his acquittal. The announcement came after nearly two weeks of reviewing his petition for readmission.

The NCAA had to grant Cephus a waiver in order for him to play this season, since he didn't complete the required number of credits last semester.
