Notre Dame confirms TE leaving program
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.
Want thank ND and the coaches for giving me the opportunity to play here! Excited to announce that I will transfer to BYU in the Fall! #BYU— Tyler Luatua© (@Luatua13) February 2, 2016
Tight end was not a high impact position for the Fighting Irish last season, in part because of injuries.
