Prospect who says God told him to bail on Combine is missing
Where did he go?
San Diego State running back Adam Muema suddenly left the NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday just before his position group took the field for workouts. He said God told him that if he left workouts, he'd end up playing for the Seahawks, which was his dream destination. Muema beat a hasty retreat and caught a flight back to San Diego.
"[God] told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace," Muema told the San Diego Union-Tribune at the time.
Nobody has heard from him since, according to the Union-Tribune.
"I have no idea where he is," a source close to the running back said. "[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."
Muema's former high school coach is also concerned.
"It's a big mystery," said Lou Farrar, who coached Muema at Charter Oak High. "At this point, we just hope he's safe. As long as he's safe, that's all that really matters."
At this point, it's probably too early to push the panic button. Muema might just be, as he said before, sitting down and enjoying some peace. That's allowed, right?
"He talked about how close he was with God," said a former teammate, who also said Muema was "always really religious." However, "[what happened] was a little bit of surprise. ... I wish him nothing but the best. He's a great kid."
Here's hoping he's doing well.
