Former Rutgers senior RB Savon Huggins transferred to Northern Iowa.
Northern Iowa is a big-time FCS program that makes great use of its running backs, but it's a bit surprising that Higgins didn't transfer to an FBS school, as he was a graduate who would have been granted immediate eligibility regardless of his final destination. The former four-star recruit never met expectations in New Jersey and announced he would transfer in December. "Northern Iowa is the best fit for me, the best opportunity," Higgins said. "It’s a great atmosphere. The campus is really small. I don’t need it to be too big. The (master’s) program that I’m looking for, they have. Everything just fell right into place. I get to play with two of my high school teammates too, so everything just fell in line. It was the best thing for me." Huggins, who redshirted this past season due to injury, rushed for 842 yards and nine touchdowns on 261 carries across his Rutgers' career. Jan 10 - 9:37 PM
