Auburn University has issued suspensions for an unknown amount of students who are allegedly involved in a video that allegedly appears to show junior running back Jarquez Hunter engaging in explicit activities. The indefinite suspensions came from the school, not the athletic department, which should be noted.
It all started over the last 48 hours, when multiple videos made the rounds on social media that allegedly showed Hunter engaged in sexual activities.
“We are aware of the situation and takes this matter very seriously,” Auburn announced. “The appropriate offices are conducting a thorough review. Indefinite suspensions have been issued for violation of applicable Auburn Athletics department policy. No further comment will be provided at this time.”
Update: OutKick reached out to Auburn spokesperson Jennifer Adams who noted that the school could not release the names of the people suspended because of campus rules.
Also, we have reached out to the Auburn police department to inquire if any type of investigation is currently ongoing with its department.
In a video that was distributed before the account was locked, it showed someone filming a sexual act involving an unidentified female. The school is currently investigating the matter and how these videos made their way to social media. It is not known at this time if all parties knew they were being filmed.
The account that was tweeting the videos went private late last night. The person running the account put in their Twitter profile that you could pay them $5 to see the video. This could lead to more potential issues for parties involved.
Brian Stultz of Rivals was first to report the statement from Auburn.
Auburn football has not released the names of any players suspended, as this came from the school itself. The people involved may also include non-athletes.
The account that was posting the videos Wednesday evening has been suspended by twitter, which came on Thursday afternoon.
It is unclear as to whether the people involved in the video knew that it would be distributed widely. It is also unclear as to how the video was made public this week on social media.
Jarquez Hunter rushed for 675 yards and 7 TD’s in 2022. He has 1,269 career rushing yards in his career at Auburn. The junior from Montgomery should be a major factor for the Tigers this Fall.
