Northwestern RB Venric Mark Granted Fifth Year of Eligibility for 2014

Northwestern running back Venric Mark was expected to be one of the Big Ten’s top running backs in 2013, but an ankle injury sidelined him for most of the season.

But the Wildcats received some good news for 2014 this week, as Mark was granted a fifth-year of eligibility, and the Texas native will return to Northwestern next year.

Mark rushed for 1,366 yards and 12 touchdowns and caught 20 passes for 104 yards in 2012.

He was also a huge factor on special teams in 2012, averaging 18.7 yards per punt return and taking two back for scores.
