Sophomore safety Spencer Perry is transferring from Notre Dame.
The 6-2, 209-pounder announced his decision to leave the Irish program Thursday on Twitter, posting the following message.
“Thanks to The University of Notre Dame for opportunity to pursue my eduction and play football,” he said in a statement released on Twitter. “All the best to my advisors, professors, rector, teammates, coaches and the Fighting Irish fans. At this time, I am electing to transfer and continue my educational goals and football career elsewhere.”
Perry, a former three-star prospect in the class of 2016, played in six games as a freshman on special teams. He was battling for a backup position in the defensive back rotation this spring, working at Notre Dame's new rover position.
The Newhan, Ga., native attended Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy. He was an early enrollee last spring.
