LB Jordan Genmark Heath No Longer with Notre Dame Football Program

September 7, 2020

Notre Dame linebacker Jordan Genmark Heath has left the football team in order to focus on academics as he’ll graduate in December and is expected to pursue a transfer at that time according to multiple sources. 

The 6-foot, 220-pound senior is expected to have two years of eligibility remaining due to the new NCAA rule allowing an extra year for college football players due to COVID-19.

In three years at Notre Dame, Genmark Heath played in 39 games and made one start in 2018 against Northwestern. 

Genmark Heath arrived at Notre Dame as a safety, but transitioned to Buck following his freshman season. The California native tallied 41 tackles during his Notre Dame career, including 11 on kickoff-return as a freshman in 2017. 

The former four-star prospect flipped late in the 2017 recruiting cycle from Cal following the hiring of Mike Elko.
