Former Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk has alluded to committing to Eastern Kentucky, his Twitter bio reveals.
WTVQ ABC 36 reporter Kennedy Hardman tweeted Monday that EKU had confirmed Mauk’s commitment, though he had not signed a financial aid agreement. Hardman later deleted the tweet and then said EKU had not confirmed Mauk’s commitment.
Mauk was dismissed from Missouri in January after a video surfaced on social media featuring Mauk snorting a white substance.
Mauk was suspended from Missouri’s program in late September for failing a drug test, and was reinstated in October after missing four weeks. The team suspended him for the remainder of the year on Nov. 1 after he was involved in a dispute outside a bar in Columbia. He was reinstated in December by new football coach Barry Odom and welcomed back to team activities, before being dismissed.
Mauk will be a redshirt senior in 2016. He threw 42 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in 32 games with the Tigers.
