Updated 6/25 @ 7:00 p.m.: Following his arrest over the weekend for public intoxication, Auburn quarterback Zeke Pike has left Auburn and returned home to Fort Mitchell, Ky., where he reportedly plans to spend the rest of the summer, al.com is reporting.
Whether Pike left, or was asked to leave, is unclear; Auburn still has not commented on Pike’s status.
Pike came to Auburn with a bit of a track record. He was suspended for undisclosed reasons for a couple of games during his final year at Dixie Heights High School, and was also reportedly asked to leave a 7-on-7 summer camp for throwing a football at an official.
Freshman quarterback Zeke Pike had been in the running for Auburn’s starting quarterback job as recently as this spring. Given the following slip-up, however, those chances may — or, may not — have taken a hit.
Multiple media outlets report that Pike, a freshman who enrolled at Auburn in January, was arrested this weekend and charged with public intoxication. He was released on $300 bond.
So far, Auburn has yet to have anything to say regarding the matter. In the Tigers’ spring game in April, Pike completed 5-of-11 passes for 48 yards.
