Texas Tech wide receiver Devin Lauderdale has been reinstated to the Red Raiders’ program, he announced Tuesday on Twitter.

“If you ever slept on me, you’ll never wanna sleep again. My Suspension is officially over. I’m back,” Laurderdale tweeted.

Lauderdale was suspended before Texas Tech’s 56–27 loss to LSU in the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl in December. Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury called the suspension “indefinite” in a release, saying Lauderdale​ was suspended due to his failure “to uphold Texas Tech Athletic Department Student-Athlete Expectations.”

Lauderdale was the Red Raiders’ second-leading receiver in 2015, recording 43 receptions, 639 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
