After meeting with head coach Brian Kelly, Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd will sleep on his options before informing his head coach whether or not he’ll come back to school for his senior season.

Notre Dame’s record-setting junior returned to South Bend this morning and met with Brian Kelly this afternoon to discuss his options. Floyd has been projected anywhere from a first round to third round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft if he decides to come out, a spread that has been just one of the many factors that makes this decision so difficult.

A source close to the situation tells me that the meeting between Floyd and Kelly was productive and that Floyd is on the fence with the decision. Underclassmen have until January 15th to declare themselves eligible for the NFL Draft.

Floyd had 1,025 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns during his junior season, and his 28 career touchdown catches is a Notre Dame record.

    I hope that he comes back for his Senior season. With a lot of quality recievers coming out this year I beleive that he comes back. He could use another year to continue his development and would be a first rounder next year for sure. Still needs some work on catching and holding onto balls in traffic. He should of had a couple more TD’s against Miami but were drops instead. One more season and I think he will be the best WR next year. Good luck to you Micheal and its been great watching you for ND.

    Leapin’ Leprechauns he’s coming back!! Announcement just posted on Great statement by Floyd explaining his reasoning. I would’ve been happy for him either way, but now I’m stoked! Can’t wait to see him continue his steady improvement & carve up secondaries all thru 2011.
