CANYON, Texas (AP) - Former Northwestern running back Venric Mark says he is transferring to West Texas A&M.

ESPN reported Saturday that Ward wanted to be closer to his mother.

He was going to be suspended for some of this season for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Mark told ESPN he had interest in Football Bowl Subdivision teams, including Baylor, Houston, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Kansas. He said they were willing to apply for an NCAA waiver so he could play this season. But he didn't want to take a chance with his last year of eligibility.

West Texas A&M is a Division II team in Canyon, Texas, about 20 miles south of Amarillo.

Mark missed much of last season with injuries. The NCAA gave him an extra year of eligibility.
