This speedy athlete could never find the right fit
It’s spring football for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish — which generally means there will be some attrition as players see where they fall on the depth chart (as well as many other things). On Friday, we learned that Junior wide receiver Kendall Abdur-Rahman will enter the transfer portal.
Abdur-Rahman was part of the 2019 recruiting class from Edwardsville, Illinois, and turned down offers from the Iowa Hawkeyes, Iowa State Cyclones, Indiana Hoosiers, and others to attend Notre Dame. He was considered to be an “athlete” coming in as he played quarterback in high school, but the Irish liked him to play either running back or receiver.
Unfortunately, this speedy player could never quite find a home on the field, and only saw action on one game, the 52-0 win over the South Florida Bulls.
Notre Dame is now down to 88 scholarship players for the 2021 season — although that doesn’t matter much this year as the NCAA is allowing the COVID-19 extra year of eligibility.
