Missouri Tigers starting safety Kaleb Prewett has been suspended indefinitely by the program for a violation of team rules.
The Kansas City Star reached out to get confirmation, and received the following back:
“We will continue to gather additional information and work with campus and department leadership to determine his future in our program,” read a text message from the spokesperson. The team did not disclose the specific reason for the suspension.
Moreover, the Kansas City Star notes that the team has not yet been told about the player’s suspension.
Prewett was a starter for the Tigers last season after transferring to Missouri from Kansas State before the 2016 season. He also has experience playing linebacker.
He would finish this past season recording 60 total tackles, including four of those going for a loss, and recorded a single interception.
This could spell trouble for the Tigers, as they already lost last season’s other starting safety Anthony Sherrils, as he exhausted his eligibility. Still, that might be jumping the gun too much, as we don’t yet know the severity of what happened or for how long Prewett will be held out.
As more information begins to surface, we will keep you updated on this story as it develops.
