Notre Dame confirms TE leaving program

BY Marcus Hartman • February 1, 2016

Notre Dame announced Monday night tight end Tyler Luatua will transfer out of the program. 

Luatua was a 247Sports four-star recruit in the class of 2014, and 247Sports was among the sites to report in late January he intended to leave South Bend. 

The 6-2.5, 255-pound product of La Mirada, Calif., played in 10 games in each of the past two seasons but did not catch a pass. 

He visited BYU over the weekend, and announced Tuesday that will be where he continues his college career. 

Tight end was not a high impact position for the Fighting Irish last season, in part because of injuries.
