Malzahn: Auburn S Robenson Therezie faces eligibility issue

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

Gus Malzahn told reporters Saturday that Auburn returning starting "star" safety Robenson Therezie could miss the Tiger's season opener against Arkansas -- and potentially games beyond that -- over an undisclosed eligiblity question.

"We're working through some eligibility issues right now with him," Malzahn said, per al.com. "We should know more in the near future, and when we find out, I'll definitely let you know. But that's all I'm going to say about that."

A senior, Therezie started all 14 games at the "star" -- the Tigers' hybrid safety-linebacker position -- during Auburn's run to the 2013 BCS championship game. He recorded 56 tackles, a team-high four interceptions, and earned honorable mention All-SEC honors. Therezie was named to the preseason All-SEC second team at SEC media days.

Malzahn said that if unavailable, Therezie would be replaced by junior Justin Garrett, who was positioned to start at the position to open 2013 before being sidelined by injuries.
