Notre Dame Football: Keivarae Russell Announces He's Back With Fighting Irish On Instagram

Keivarae Russell is back at Notre Dame. The star cornerback, who was one of four players suspended for the entire 2014 season after an academic scandal, announced his return to campus on Instagram Friday afternoon. He had planned to return to South Bend in time for summer school, so he news isn't a total surprise. He's kept fans updated on social media this offseason, posting photos and videos of himself working out in preparation for a potential return.

Russell's return should be welcomed, considering the team struggled mightily defensively down the stretch in 2014. If he can help solidify the team's secondary, the Irish could be a bigger threat in 2015.
