Peele Back, Lott Leaves

Sophomore Ruhann Peele will be back at Rutgers for spring practice, and red-shirt freshman cornerback Kam Lott will not, sources said. Peele, suspended indefinitely by coach Kyle Flood, will be back for spring practice while Lott transfers out to pursue other opportunities.

The suspended Ruhann Peele sat with the Rutgers football team at a recent basketball game, and will be reinstated for spring practice, sources said.

Head coach Kyle Flood suspended Peele in the fall following an arrest, and the red-shirt sophomore missed the entire season for a combination of injury and disciplinary reasons. Peele did not practice with the team or travel for the bowl game, but is back for winter workouts and spring practices.

Peele worked at wide receiver in training camp, but has cornerback experience as well and could work there this spring.

Cornerback Kam Lott will transfer after red-shirting as a freshman.

The 5-foot-9 Lott is one of four class of 2014 signees not currently with the program. He joins offensive lineman Cal Ibanez, who left during summer workouts. Defensive end Justin Nelson and linebacker Sidney Gopre did not qualify academically and attended junior college and prep school respectively in 2014.
