Notre Dame football: defensive lineman leaves program

Notre Dame got some bad news Thursday from a defensive player that was showing promise this season.  

Just like many teams around the nation the Irish are getting hit by the transfer portal.

Senior defensive lineman Jacob Lacey has decided to enter the transfer portal.  

Against Cal this season Lacey totaled five tackles with two sacks and two tackles for loss.

Lacey played in 37 games at Notre Dame where he totaled 35 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss,  and 2.5 sacks.

Notre Dame is getting ready to hop on a plane tomorrow and head west to Las Vegas to take on BYU but they’ll be without Jacob Lacey on that flight as the senior defensive lineman is leaving the program.

Lacey had been a big part of the rotation at defensive tackle for Notre Dame and came up huge against Cal just a few short weeks ago when he recorded a pair of sacks in the win.  

In all, he made five tackles on the year, all of which came in that Cal game.

Lacey played four seasons with the Irish, recording 35 total tackles and 2.5 sacks in that time.  

Lacey was a four-star commitment to Notre Dame out of Bowling Green, Kentucky in the 2019 recruiting class.
