Missouri junior safety Kaleb Prewett has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team policy, a spokesperson for the football team confirmed Wednesday.
“We will continue to gather additional information and work with campus and department leadership to determine his future in our program,” read a text message from the spokesperson. The team did not disclose the specific reason for the suspension.
One current Mizzou football player told The Star that Prewett’s suspension had not been addressed with the team.
Prewett, who started at free safety this season after playing some at linebacker for the Tigers, transferred to Missouri from Kansas State before the 2016 season. He was eligible to play this past season, when he had 60 total tackles, including four for a loss, and recorded an interception against Tennessee.
A Blue Springs graduate, Prewett played in all 13 games and finished fourth on the team in total tackles.
The Tigers have already lost their other starting safety from this past season, Anthony Sherrils, who exhausted his eligibility.
