Texas Tech freshman quarterback Jett Duffey has been suspended by the university for the spring and summer, according the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. The report of Duffey's suspension comes on the same day Patrick Mahomes, the nation's leading passer, publicly declared for the NFL draft.

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury statement on QB Patrick Mahomes declaring for the draft: "Our staff is excited for Patrick's future in the NFL. He is a tremendous talent and the sky is the limit for him moving forward. We wish him nothing but the best."

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

All things considered on Patrick Mahomes -- his help returning at Texas Tech (especially on defense), playing through injuries this year and his long list of accomplishments -- I can't argue with his decision to leave Lubbock. Though he'll be asked to play much differently at the next level, Mahomes' skills and his size make him a great NFL fit. He will likely be the QB to break the Tech mold.

Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes II says the decision to go pro was difficult but he did receive a second-round grade from the NFL advisory board.
