Malin Jones to transfer from Northwestern

Malin Jones, who has been listed as both a super back and running back at Northwestern, will transfer from the program.

The Naperville, Ill. native was suspended indefinitely for a "violation of team policy" in November, cutting his redshirt freshman season short.

He finished the year with 3 carries for -2 yards and 1 catch for 6 yards as he found himself buried beneath a deep stable of running backs.

In a statement regarding Jones, Pat Fitzgerald said, "All of us at Northwestern would like to thank Malin for his contributions to our football family over the last two seasons, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

Jones was part of Northwestern's 2012 recruiting class and was rated by 247 Sports as the second-highest rated recruit behind Ifeadi Odenigbo. The Joliet-Catholic product committed very early to Northwestern and also held offers from Notre Dame and Iowa among others out of high school.
