Report: Suspended DL Ishaq Williams Formally Re-Admitted To Notre Dame

Defensive lineman Ishaq Williams, who was one of five Notre Dame players suspended before last season due to academic dishonesty, has officially been re-admitted to the university, per Irish Illustrated's Pete Sampson.

This comes days after Eric Hansen of the South Bend Tribune first reported that Williams' father expected him back at Notre Dame this summer. What remains uncertain is whether Williams will re-join the football program. The team is up against the 85-scholarship limit and even Williams' father told Hansen he didn't know if his son would be eligible by NCAA standards.

When asked if Ishaq had work to be done in the classroom this summer to re-establish his football eligibility with the NCAA, Shaun Williams replied via text message, “I don’t know anything about that, to be completely frank.”

Williams was projected to start at defensive end for the Irish last fall before his suspension. For his career, Williams has recorded 45 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in 35 games, with one start.
