Combine departure has people close to Adam Muema concerned


Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema, who abruptly left the Scouting Combine because he said God told him to, has been out of touch this week. His friends are getting concerned.

I have no idea where is,” a person close to Muema told U-T San Diego. “[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.”

Lou Farrar, Muema’s high school football coach, said he would like some assurance that Muema is OK but hasn’t received any such assurance.

“It’s a big mystery,” Farrar said. “At this point, we just hope he’s safe. As long as he’s safe. That’s all that really matters.”

Aware that people were wondering if he had some mental health issues, Muema wrote on Twitter two days ago, “Yes, you guys are right I am crazy, crazy in love with Jesus it is the sweetest name I know.” He has been silent since then.
