The Irish are now in Ann Arbor, but there is one major member of the team that is not with the team.
"At 2:30 [Friday], while boarding the bus to Michigan, I was notified that Demetrius Jones had decided not to make the trip. 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."
Irish Illustrated is reporting that Jones is set to transfer in search of more playing time elsewhere. Possible destinations include Northern Illinois, Northwestern and Tennessee.
Transfers, of course, must sit out a season. The cutoff is being at a school by the 12th day of class.
Northwestern has not started class yet. If Jones picks Northwestern, he could use this season as his year off.
A sophomore quarterback, Jones started the first game of the season against Georgia Tech.
He was replaced late in the 2nd quarter of that game by Evan Sharpley.
Freshman Jimmy Clausen was named the starter for week 2 and will start again on Saturday against Michigan.
