Notre Dame made official the news that Tyler Luatua was transferring from the university. He’ll leave school at the end of the spring semester.
Luatua visited BYU last weekend, confirming his plans to spend the rest of his football career in Provo. He’ll sit out the 2016 season but have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
In two seasons in South Bend, Luatua served mostly as a blocker. He made three career starts and played in 20 games the past two seasons. The Irish return senior Durham Smythe, junior Nic Weishar and sophomore Alizé Jones.
