If a picture is worth a thousand words, KeiVarae Russell’s most recent post on Instagram is worth plenty more than that. The Notre Dame cornerback, who spent last school year serving a university suspension, has announced his return to the university via Instagram.
While his acceptance to re-enroll has been imminent for a while, Russell making things official solidifies a key component in the Irish secondary. Pairing Russell, an All-American candidate and lock-down cornerback, with rising junior Cole Luke gives the Irish defense a huge boost.
No word officially out of Notre Dame, but with Ishaq Williams heading to South Bend this weekend, the timing is right. So with his academic detour out of the way, Russell now has a summer to make up for lost time with his teammates before officially returning to the field in September.
