Tight End Konrad Reuland To Transfer

It’s more bad publicity for Notre Dame football. Tight end Konrad Reuland has decided to transfer to another school. His departure lacks the drama associated with Demetrius Jones, who left a couple of weeks ago for Northern Illinois.

Reuland, a sophomore, was highly regarded upon arriving at Notre Dame in 2006 and was once expected to be a mainstay starting next year after the graduation of senior tight end John Carlson. But with talented young guys like Will Yeatman and Mike Ragone around, Reuland’s future prospects were uncertain.

Of course, given the 0-4 state of the Irish, uncertainty is everywhere you look. Anyway, here’s a statement by coach Charlie Weis:

“After meeting with Konrad Reuland on Sunday, he has decided he will leave the team and withdraw from Notre Dame. I appreciate all Konrad has done forNotre Dame and I wish him nothing but the best.”

Reuland leaving isn't the worst news Notre Dame could face. Still, it doesn't look good when two players leave less than a month into what looms as the worst season in school history.
