David Vega QB New Mexico
Junior quarterback David Vega walked on to the New Mexico Lobos squad this spring, and has since been suspended twice by the team. The latest for a brush with the law last week.
Vega allegedly attempted to purchase alcohol as a minor, and then admitted to the police that he had been drinking alcohol. Vega was charged with underage drinking and for concealing his I.D.
Head Coach Bob Davie initially just straight up kicked Vega off the team, but later had second thoughts and said what every coach does after an arrest - he will reassess the situation after the legal process. He was initially upset that Vega hadn't told the coach about the arrest right away.
