Notre Dame TE Tyler Luatua Reportedly Returning to Irish, Not Transferring To BYU

In early February, Notre Dame tight end Tyler Luatua announced that he was leaving the Fighting Irish and transferring to BYU after the spring semester. Now, there are indications that Luatua won't be leaving South Bend after all.

Things got rolling this afternoon when Irish DE Andrew Trumbetti posted a picture on Instagram indicating that Luatua was returning to the team.

Now, multiple outlets have confirmed that Luatua is staying at Notre Dame

This is an interesting development that will help Notre Dame's tight end depth and running game. Luatua is an accomplished blocker who has appeared in 20 games in two seasons for the Irish, but has not recorded a catch.
