NFL Draft: Muema surfaces, says he's going 'home'

The SportsXchange

Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema finally surfaced at a Florida performance facility on Friday, five days after he left the 2014 NFL combine citing religious reasons.

Muema was on the same flight to Ft. Lauderdale as a CBSSports.com video producer on Monday, but had not been seen since. He reportedly arrived at the facility he trained at leading up to the combine still wearing his gear from the event.

"I know he's fine. I know he's safe," a person close to Muema told U-T San Diego. "But I don't know what happens from here. There are good people that are helping him."

Muema, 21, left the combine on Sunday, telling the website he was "following God" by skipping the workout and that it was part of his dream to eventually play for the Seattle Seahawks.

On Friday, Muema told U-T San Diego from the airport that he was going "home."

"I'm glad he's safe, obviously," the source told the website. "But the last thing I think he needs to be doing is be talking to anyone, on Twitter, media, anything like that. He just needs to get his life right. ... I hope he stops being a story."

Muema surprised many by leaving San Diego State following his junior season, despite being given a fourth- to seventh-round grade by the NFL Advisory Board. He rushed for 1,244 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2013, but is currently rated as the No. 30 running back for May's draft and a likely undrafted free agent by NFLDraftScout.com.

It is unknown if Muema intends to participate at San Diego's March 20 pro day.
