An MGoBlog user collected screenshots of the tweets, which refer to guns, an apparent suspension and a tweet where he tagged Harbaugh's Twitter handle. His Twitter account has since gone private.

Michigan campus police sent the following statement to Sporting News: "We are aware of [the] tweets and the case is currently under investigation. We will provide updates when possible."

Michigan football has not commented on the situation.

Mbem-Bosse's name does not show up on the official Michigan 2018 roster online and in a story listing the 2018 scholarship count it notes, "Removed LB Elysee Mbem-Bosse" under recent adjustments.

There are no stories directly explaining what happened to Mbem-Bosse on Michigan, but he tweeted an image of a text that appears to say he was suspended by Harbaugh.

It's unclear exactly what Mbem-Bosse is venting about, though it may have to do with the fact he's no longer on Michigan's football roster. He would have been a junior in 2018.
