BREAKING | Notre Dame WR Kendall Abdur-Rahman Enters Transfer Portal

April 2, 2021

Notre Dame receiver Kendall Abdur-Rahman has announced he will enter the Transfer Portal.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder redshirted his first year on campus in 2019 and then appeared in one game last fall. 

Much like Notre Dame receiver Avery Davis, the Illinois native has bounced around several positions during his time in South Bend. 

He worked as a receiver his freshman year before moving to running back in fall camp and it appears Abdur-Rahman is back to working with the receivers this spring. (Note: The media does not have access to spring practice) 

As a senior in high school, Abdur-Raham threw for 647 yards and 15 touchdowns while also adding 1,135 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns, including five of 80 yards or more. 

Abdur-Rahman, a former composite four-star prospect, chose the Irish over offers from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota and Purdue. 

ISD’s Jamie Uyeyama was higher on Abdur-Rahman than most as he had him ranked as a four-star prospect, but the depth chart was deep despite his athleticism and speed.

“Although Kendall Abdur Rahman showed explosive athletic potential as a high school quarterback, he never found a fit at Notre Dame,” stated Uyeyama. “Avery Davis and Lawrence Keys were ahead of him on the depth chart in the slot and with Xavier Watts and Lorenzo Styles Jr. on the roster, it was going to be difficult for Abdur-Rahman to find a role.”

And as always, once a player enters the Transfer Portal, they can remove their name at any point.
