The Texas Longhorns will be without one of their promising young wide receivers with Kennedy Lewis, a redshirt freshman, suspended from the team, according to Orangebloods’ Anwar Richardson.
Richardson announced the news on his Twitter account on Saturday.

No further reason was given for the suspension, but he is expected back in June.
Lewis was a three-star prospect in the 2019 class from Melissa, Texas, who was originally committed to TCU, before flipping to join the Longhorns after an official visit. He has blazing speed, running a 10.53 100m as a senior in high school.
Lewis played in two games for the Longhorns last year against Rice and Oklahoma State, with one 37-yard catch against the Owls.
Lewis has the aforementioned speed and is 6’3”, 200 pounds, giving him real potential for a team that is trying to replace Collin Johnson and Devin Duvernay. But a suspension like this one heading into the year you’re supposed to start contributing is not a good sign.
