It did not take Adonis Smith long to find a new school. Two weeks after announcing he was transferring from Northwestern, Smith told the Chicago Tribune that he'd be continuing his college football career at UNLV.
“One of my goals will be to help UNLV gain a bowl berth and compete for a conference title in the near future,” Smith told the Tribune.
“I would like to thank all my friends, teammates, fans, faculty and coaching staff for making my stay at Northwestern a great one. Northwestern is a great university with an outstanding community. I will always cherish my memories there and I wish everyone and the team great success in the future."
Smith, who is a northern California native, chose UNLV over unspecified Pac-12 and WAC schools. He'll have to sit out the 2012 season before he can suit up for UNLV.
Smith had 66 carries for 266 yards and 3 touchdowns for Northwestern in 2011.
