Notre Dame LB DJ Morgan Announces Grad Transfer

January 16, 2019

On Wednesday, Notre Dame linebacker DJ Morgan announced he plans to do a graduate transfer. 

“I would like to thank the University of Notre Dame for everything they have done for me. When I decided to come here, my main goal was to get my degree from this prestigious University, and I am proud to say that I will be completing that goal this summer. During this time, I will be searching for a new school to attend as a graduate transfer to finish off my last two years of eligibility. I will miss all of the great relationships I have made, especially with my teammates here at Notre Dame. They are a special group of guys and over the past three years, we have become closer than ever, and I wish nothing but the best for them and their futures. I’ve learned so much about life and myself here at Notre Dame and this place will always hold a special place in my heart. I am excited for what the future holds. God is not finished with me yet.” 

Morgan chose the Irish over several Pac-12  schools but appeared in just two games in his career for Notre Dame and both came in 2017. 

The former St. John Bosco star arrived at Notre Dame as a safety but made a transition to linebacker last spring and will finish his career in the blue and gold with two tackles. 

As mentioned, Morgan will finish his degree this summer and enroll to a new school following the completion of his degree, which is the path former Notre Dame and current SMU receiver CJ Sanders took last summer.
