Auburn University has dished out a raft of suspensions after videos were leaked online allegedly showing star running back Jarquez Hunter engaging in sexual activities with a woman.
Multiple videos were posted on social media from a Twitter account titled ‘Jarquez Exposed’ – which has now been suspended – and appeared to show Hunter, 20, being filmed during a sex act with an unidentified woman.
Auburn have since released a statement to DailyMail.com confirming that an undisclosed number of students have been suspended while they investigate.
‘We are aware of the situation and takes this matter very seriously,’ the school said. ‘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.’
It is currently unclear whether Hunter is among the students suspended, and it is not yet known whether all those suspended are athletes.

Running back Hunter, 20, is expected to play a major role in the Auburn Tigers’ 2023 season
Hunter is one of Auburn’s star running backs, and the junior rushed for 675 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
He was second in the team’s depth chart behind Tank Bigsby, who has since been drafted by the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, leaving Hunter in with a shot of becoming the team’s RB1.
Hunter is expected to play a significant role in the Tigers’ 2023 campaign, which starts in the fall, after impressing during spring training.
