Notre Dame junior WR Michael Young has been used only sparingly by the team in his three years in South Bend. But it looks like he plans on going somewhere where he can get more reps in his final years of eligibility.

According to 247Sports, Young is leaving the Notre Dame football program, effective immediately. Per the report, he is expected to transfer after he graduates in 2020.

As a freshman, Young had four receptions for 18 yards and a touchdown in four games. His sophomore year, he had seven receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown in seven games, with the touchdown coming against LSU.

This year he's posted six receptions for 21 yards in three games.

Back in 2017, 247Sports rated Young as a three-star prospect and the No. 475 overall prospect in the country. He was the No. 70 wide receiver in the nation, and the No. 19 prospect from the state of Louisiana.

Michael Young reportedly has two years of eligibility remaining. He previously received scholarship offers from over a dozen Power Five programs.

Once he receives his degree after the Spring 2020 semester, he shouldn't have a major issue finding a new school to take him on for next fall.

We wish him luck in finding a new program and to finish out his college career on a strong note.
