Freddy Canteen has played for two stories college football programs during his career: Michigan and Notre Dame. After injuries derailed his year in South Bend, he is heading down to New Orleans to finish up his career at Tulane.

In high school, Canteen was a four-star recruit out of Maryland. He played sparingly through two seasons with the Wolverines, totaling six catches for 22 yards in 2014 and 2015. He caught one touchdown, in a blowout loss to Ohio State in 2014.

He missed the 2016 season due to shoulder surgery, and moved on to Notre Dame. Unfortunately, his season was quickly derailed.

Three games into the year, Canteen suffered a torn labrum. He missed the rest of the season for the Fighting Irish, after catching one pass for seven yards.

In late May, Canteen announced another graduate transfer. He thanked Notre Dame for his year in South Bend, via Twitter:

"I will be transferring to another university to obtain a graduate degree that unfortunately Notre Dame does not offer. I will also utilize my remaining two years of eligibility to play football.

I want to thank Coach Kelly, his staff, and the Notre Dame family for the opportunities they provided. My primary focus will be to prepare for a career that expands beyond football.

Freddy Canteen II
Go Irish!"

Today, Freddy Canteen announced his transfer to Tulane.

Canteen's note indicates that he will receive a medical redshirt for the 2017 season, after taking his regular redshirt in 2016. That would give him two more years to play, with 2019 serving as a sixth year.

Given all of his injury issues, hopefully he is able to play two healthy years to finish up with the Green Wave.
