Running back Adonis Smith has transferred out of Northwestern.

It was not immediately known where Smith is transferring to, but it is a potential blow to the Wildcats’ running game. As a sophomore last season, Smith ran for 266 yards and 3 TDs. He was one of a few RBs to pick up the slack after starter Mike Trumpy was felled by a torn ACL. Given the severity of Trumpy’s injury and the uncertainty that comes with such a setback, Smith could have put himself in position for an increased role – and perhaps being by the lead ball carrier – starting this spring.
