Shaquelle Evans To Transfer: Notre Dame Football News

Collin O'ConnorCorrespondent ISeptember 1, 2010

Early Monday morning, Notre Dame receiver Shaquelle Evans announced that he will transfer out of Notre Dame.

While there were always rumors going around about this possible move, nothing had been confirmed until then. The announcement by Brian Kelly came on Tuesday at a press conference.

"He made a decision that he felt it was in his best interest to transfer," Coach Kelly said during the Tuesday conference.

Obviously this talented athlete could have had a successful future at Notre Dame, but being played down on the depth chart could possibly have impacted his decision to leave.

Last season, he appeared in six games as a freshman and caught seven passes for 61 yards.

However, he did seem to have a promising future in blue and gold.

He has great athleticism with a 4.5 40-yard dash time and the ability to go catch up to tough passes. He will definitely benefit the team he decides to play for next.

The rumored team right now appears to be Oregon. He hasn't publicly said that he's interested, though.
