AUBURN, Alabama — Auburn coach Gene Chizik said Wednesday that freshman quarterback Zeke Pike is no longer a member of the football team and will transfer.
Chizik reaffirmed that defensive back Jonathan Rose is off the team as well, and plans to transfer.
“They’re not with our football team anymore. Their intent is to transfer to another school. We wish them the best,” Chizik said after the first day of fall practice.
Chizik said the decision not to bring Pike back was made in the last 7-10 days.
Chizik sent both players home for the summer. Pike was sent home after being arrested for public intoxication.
Chizik said quarterback Clint Moseley looked good, having bounced back from a sore shoulder that limited him in the spring.
“He’s full go,” Chizik said.
