After missing a handful of spring practices, the status of Auburn safety Demetruce McNeal was considered to be “up in the air.”
Apparently, McNeal’s back down to Earth. Or something.
McNeal tweeted “Auburn football update I’m back!!!!!!!!” Friday, followed by “I was not in any trouble off the field everything was personal jus[t] to clear that up never was off the team jus[t] had to clear some things.”
Tigers coach Gus Malzahn said earlier this week that McNeal was still on the team, though his official status was lacking some clarity.
McNeal is Auburn’s leading returning tackler (90) and in 2012 tied for the team lead in tackles for loss with seven.
