Notre Dame announced yesterday that it will release quarterback Demetrius Jones from his scholarship, but only if he transfers to a school not on Notre Dame's "immediate future football schedules," reports AP. The school had previously refused to release Jones, who was dropped from his starting position and failed to board the team bus before last week's loss in Michigan.
Jones has already enrolled at Northern Illinois, but Notre Dame's athletic director announced that the Huskies would not be on the list of acceptable schools for Jones. The schools that will appear on that list have "not been finalized at this point." Jones could still play at Northern Illinois, but would have to pay his own way this year.
