Earlier, we reported that Notre Dame forward Elijah Taylor was leaving the team after he sent out a tweet about his future. Taylor’s Twitter account has since gone private, but it turns out he’s not exactly gone permanently. Mike Brey clarified what was going on with him in his postgame news conference after the Irish’s win over Clemson:

So talk of Taylor’s demise as a Notre Dame basketball player has been exaggerated, and it’s another example of a news outlet jumping the gun before all the facts have come out. We always try to be right before we’re first and we typically are, but in this case, we failed to do that. Taylor never explicitly said he was done with Notre Dame for good, and nothing excuses our actions. We apologize for misleading anyone with this story, and we will work to be more vigilant when reporting news in the future.
