Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers Says NCAA Stipend Not Enough

Michigan DB Jabrill Peppers went off on a Twitter tizzy Tuesday that extended into Wednesday morning, saying the NCAA checks he gets for food are not adequate for living a healthy lifestyle. The 6’1” sophomore from Paramus, New Jersey, feels he is not getting enough food to satisfy his hunger and that the bureaucracy and hypocrisy of the NCAA is to blame.

Peppers says that he is barely getting by, and that most of his meals are ramen noodles.

See what he had to say on Twitter:

This comes nearly a year after Shabazz Napier, ex-UConn star guard, said he would go to sleep hungry and that he had many hungry nights while in college.

Peppers is coming off a season in which he played in only three games and accumulated just eight tackles. However, as one of the prime prospects of the 2014 class (he was the No. 3 recruit and No.1 athlete in in the 2014 class according to 247sports.com), Peppers figures to play a prominent role for the Wolverines in Jim Harbaugh’s first year in Ann Arbor. He can play both cornerback and safety effectively and he should be in a for a nice rebound season.

Michigan will open their season at Utah on September 3.
