San Diego State running back Adam Muema walked out of the NFL Scouting Combine Sunday, citing religious reasons for quitting, and he hasn’t been seen since.

Muema was at the Combine in Indianapolis, which tests potential NFL players mentally and physically in front of NFL coaches, but left unexpectedly, saying God told him to do so if he wanted to play for the Seattle Seahawks, Fox Sports said.

Muema apparently got on a flight back to San Diego.

“Can’t go wrong with God,” he told the San Diego Union Tribune over the weekend. “(God) told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace.”

Sources close to Muema have told the Union Tribune they can’t find him and he’s not picking up his phone, raising concerns.

A tweet on Muema’s Twitter account Monday said:

His reference to being “crazy” spotlights numerous jokes and comments made online and in the media about Muema’s decision to leave the Combine without participating.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune wrote a column expressing concern for the missing Muema and said he’s not laughing. “There should, instead, be real concern,” Acee wrote.

As numerous sports commentators have talked about what such behavior does to Muema’s draft potential, Acee pointed out that it’s not all about football.

“Beyond his status as a draft prospect, though, we’re talking about a person,” Acee said. “This is not an indictment of Muema’s mental health based solely on his claims about God’s communication. But if he believes he is communicating with God by numbers and at all giving credence to someone claiming to be Jesus, there is reason for concern.”

In another Union Tribune article, Muema told the newspaper that he talks to God through numbers.

Concerns about Muema’s mental health surfaced in the article's comments. “Does no one else think this is somewhat schizophrenic sounding?” one woman wrote.
