    ND QB Jones Leaves, Enrolls in No. Illinois

    Notre Dame quarterback Demetrius Jones has enrolled at Northern Illinois and intends to play there next season, according to a source familiar with the situation.

    Jones started Notre Dame's season opener against Georgia Tech, but was pulled before the end of the first half and had not played since. He did not join Notre Dame on its road trip to Michigan this weekend.

    Friday, Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis confirmed that Jones had decided not to make the team's bus trip to Michigan. "I have not spoken to Demetrius and can only say that he missed the team bus. Any additional comment would be without all the facts," Weis said in a statement.

    Against Georgia Tech, Jones was 1-of-3 passing for 4 yards and ran the ball 12 times for 28 yards. Four of the six drives he led ended in three-and-outs, and he fumbled the ball away on the other two possessions. Freshman Jimmy Clausen replaced Jones as Notre Dame's starter for last week's game at Penn State.


    The departure is the second for a Notre Dame quarterback since this spring. Zach Frazer, who was eliminated from contention for the starting job after spring practice, transferred to Connecticut.

    Good for this kid. He has some integrity and does not want to be a part of Fat Charlie's program.

    Or he realized that he is never going to start again so he went to another program. Jones sucks as a QB.

    Possibly. But it could also be becasue he doesn't take to coaching* like Tom Brady did.

    Jones is not an NFL caliber quarterback. But he is a great athlete. He should have stayed at ND and made a position switch to RB or WR.
