Maty Mauk can turn things around at EKU. USATSI

Maty Mauk, dismissed from Missouri in January, will be back on the field this fall playing for Eastern Kentucky. Mauk discussed the move on Twitter earlier this week, but the school confirmed the news on Saturday, via the Associated Press.

Mauk was suspended three times in four months, then a video was posted on Twitter that suggested alleged drug use in January. New coach Barry Odom dismissed the quarterback, 17-5 as a starter over three years, and moved the Tigers forward from a disappointing 2015 season on and off the field.

At Eastern Kentucky, Mauk has a chance to succeed in a spot where scouts are used to checking out the talent. I could see an NFL team picking up on Mauk's playmaking and athleticism, but he'll also have to prove himself on a personal level for the legendarily harsh interview sessions during the draft process.

Eastern Kentucky recently produced Noah Spence as the No. 39 selection in the NFL Draft to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Spence, an All-Big Ten defensive end at Ohio State, was ruled permanently ineligible for multiple positive drug tests linking him to ecstasy. Spence was the first EKU draft pick since 2008, but a few of his teammates have received camp invites, so they'll have a shot as well.

Here is Mauk's tweet, if you're looking for the graduation-gram (Instagram).
