Kaleb Prewett “indefinitely suspended” from Missouri football team

The senior-to-be was the Tigers’ starting free safety in 2017.

Missouri announced on Wednesday that safety and senior-to-be Kaleb Prewett was “indefinitely suspended” from the team.

The text of Dave Matter’s tweet:

Missouri safety Kaleb Prewett has been indefinitely suspended from the football program for a violation of team policy. From the team: “We will continue to gather additional information and work with campus and department leadership to determine his future in our program.”

As David Morrison points out, “work with campus and department leadership” does not suggest a “he was late to a workout” type of violation but something perhaps quite a bit more serious.

The Blue Springs native was a Mizzou starter in 2017, first at nickel back and then at free safety. He compiled 53.0 tackles, four tackles for loss, and three passes defensed.

More as this develops, obviously.
