An attempt to confirm by MLive.com was apparently rebuffed.

Mone played in 12 games last season, including one start. He had nine tackles and recovered a fumble.
A four-star recruit rated the No. 1 defensive tackle prospect in the West by Scout.com two years ago, Mone was in the mix with several others to rotate in the interior of new coordinator D.J. Durkin’s defense.
