    Kevin Sumlin addressed Speedy Noil on Thursday, saying the wide receiver would be suspended through the season-opener against UCLA.

    Texas A&M wide receiver Speedy Noil will have to wait a little bit longer before he sees the field again for the Aggies. After being suspended for the Music City Bowl, head coach Kevin Sumlin said on Thursday that Noil’s suspension would last through the season-opener against UCLA.

    Noil was arrested last week for driving without a valid license.

    “The consistency part has been an issue,” Sumlin stated of Noil’s up and down ride with the Aggies.

    Noil, a five-star prospect ranked as the No. 1 wide receiver coming out of high school, has shown flashes of brilliance for A&M, but has been unable to separate himself from off-the-field issues in his first two years in College Station.

    He started as a true freshman, catching four or more passes in six games. Against Ole Miss he hauled in a career-high 11 receptions for 105 yards. In total, Noil made 46 catches for 583 yards and five touchdowns.

    His sophomore season was derailed by injuries and suspensions. Noil missed a total of four games, and only made 21 catches for a total of 226 yards and two touchdowns. Now his junior campaign will begin with the mercurial talent riding the pine during the season-opener.
