San Diego State running back Adam Muema made headlines on Sunday after he left the NFL Scouting Combine without working out. Muema claimed that God told him that if he left, he would wind up playing for the Seattle Seahawks. Now, a person close to Muema claims he has no idea where the 21-year-old is.
Lou Farrar – Muema’s former high school football coach – is apparently concerned about his former pupil and claims he and SDSU coaches are both trying to contact the running back.
Farrar, who coached Muema at Charter Oak High, had the following to say:
“I have no idea where he is. (San Diego State coaches) have been trying to track him down, too. Every time they do, his phone is off. It’s a frustrating deal. At this point, we just hope he’s safe. As long as he’s safe. That’s all that really matters.”
SDSU coaches apparently haven’t talked to Muema since he left the combine, and neither have others tasked with helping him with the draft process.
Muema completed his media obligations on Friday and seemed excited to work out on Sunday. Then apparently things went awry. Muema claims God talked to him and said that if he didn’t participate in workouts, his dream of playing for the Seahawks would come true.
Right now there isn’t even a clear picture as to whether or not he’ll participate in San Diego State’s Pro Day next month.
Everyone who was contacted for comment by the San Diego Union-Tribune mentioned that Muema was a great kid and they didn’t see this kind of erratic behavior coming. He seems to be well-liked, so we can only hope that someone gets in touch with Muema and starts giving him some good advice.
