WMBD/WYZZ-TV - NORMAL, Ill. - Jared Barnett went from opening day starter to off the team.
Barnett has decided to leave the Illinois State football program after just five games. He transferred to ISU from Iowa State with the hopes of playing a big role for the Redbirds.
Barnett won the starting nod to open the season at quarterback. But suffered a back injury in the firts half of the second game of the season.
He was replaced by freshman Blake Winkler and has only been in one game since.
