08/23/2014 - RB Mark transfers to West Texas A&M ... Former Northwestern running back Venric Mark is transferring to West Texas A&M. Mark told ESPN that he chose West Texas A&M over several other schools because "this is an hour and half from my mom. It's the best fit." Mark said he was also interested in Baylor, Houston, Texas State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Kansas. He said only some of the schools were willing to apply for an NCAA waiver to be eligible to play this season.

Mark announced last week he was leaving Northwestern. He was going to be suspended for part of this season for violating rules. He cited health issues involving his mother and grandmother as reasons why he left Northwestern to be closer to home. "I will get my Northwestern degree," Mark said. "There is no bad blood with Northwestern at all. Me and Coach Fitz (Pat Fitzgerald) still talk. We are still family." Mark missed much of last season with leg injuries but was granted an additional year of eligibility from the NCAA. He ran for 1,366 yards with 12 touchdowns and returned to punts for touchdowns in 2012. Mark, who hopes to play in the NFL next season, already started practicing at West Texas A&M. - The Sports Xchange
