Tuesday afternoon featured reports and plenty of speculation about if and where ex-Northwestern running back Venric Mark might be playing college football next.

Tuesday night, Mark tweeted out a statement that answered certain questions about the former Wildcat's future, at least off the field.

Mark, who is one class away from a Northwestern degree, reiterated his commitment to his education and called all the talk surrounding potential landing places "speculation." Those reported potential landing spots included Texas Tech and a pair of Division II schools also in Texas.

Interestingly, he also continued to tie himself to Pat Fitzgerald and the Northwestern football program despite shockingly announcing that he would transfer last week.
