Northwestern Announces That RB Adonis Smith Will Transfer

Northwestern Wildcats running back Adonis Smith will transfer to a different program.

Northwestern Wildcats running back Adonis Smith will transfer to a different program, as the school announced on Wednesday according to Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports. Smith, a sophomore, was Northwestern's fourth-leading rusher during the 2011 season.

A native of Oakland, Calif., Smith likely would've had an increased role with the Wildcats next season, especially if all-around athlete Kain Colter wins the full-time job at quarterback. Last season, Smith carried the ball 66 times for 266 yards and three touchdowns in seven games. He also caught seven passes for 31 passes.

Smith, listed a 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, finishes his Northwestern career with 462 rushing yards and three touchdowns. His best games came against Eastern Illinois, during which he had 79 total yards, and Iowa, during which he had 60 rushing yards and a touchdown.
