Mykelti Willams story from NBCsports( We got a good one)
-Sophomore safety Mykelti Williams is no longer a part of the Notre Dame football program. Brian Kelly announced the news on Wednesday, though wasn’t able to give any more details.


The Indianapolis native preserved a year of eligibility last season, sitting out his freshman season after coming to Notre Dame as a four-star prospect out of Warren Central, the same program that brought the Irish Sheldon Day. Williams was expected to compete for a spot in a safety position that’s still up in the air.

That won’t happen, with the only clues on Williams’ next move coming from social media, where a slew of college coaches have found their way into his sphere. Williams is certainly a transfer candidate who’ll likely land on his feet, with three seasons of eligibility remaining assuming he’ll have to sit out 2016. He picked Notre Dame relatively late in the recruiting process, choosing the Irish over offers from mostly Big Ten programs like Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Purdue and Wisconsin.

Until reinforcements coming this summer, the depth chart will feature seniors Max Redfield and Avery Sebastian, junior Drue Tranquill, sophomore Nicco Fertitta and early-enrollee freshmen Spencer Perry and Devin Studstill. It’s been Studstill who has made waves so far through just five practices, with Kelly revealing that the Florida native is sharing reps with the first team in place of Redfield.

For the doomsday crowd, it’s worth pointing out that transfers—especially this time of year—happen. As Irish Illustrated’s Tim O’Malley has pointed out, Notre Dame has now had a transfer every season since 1980 (and potentially longer), a 36-year trend that rolls on with Williams.

He obviously has to sit for a year, right? Though in the article it says he has to sit the 2016 season. Can anyone clarify if he is eligible this season or next?

He's eligible to play right away. Had he transferred to another D1 after leaving Notre Dame he would've had to sit out, but he went the Juco route for a season and played there. Since he's not transferring directly from Notre Dame to NIU he's very much eligible.

Yeah, he's no different than any other Juco guy. It looks like he actually signed with syracuse on signing day, but I don't think he had the grades.
