Freddy Canteen joined Notre Dame as a graduate transfer from Michigan just one year ago, and now it appears he’ll be on the move again.
Canteen announced on Friday via Twitter that he’s transferring to pursue a new graduate degree program that Notre Dame does not offer.
“I will be transferring to another university to obtain a graduate degree that unfortunately Notre Dame does not offer,” Canteen wrote. “I will also utilize my remaining two years of eligibility to play football.
“I want to thank Coach [Brian] Kelly, his staff, and the Notre Dame family for the opportunity they provided for me, however, my primary focus will be to prepare myself for a career that expands beyond football.”
Originally a 4-star recruit, Canteen committed to Michigan and caught 6 passes for 22 yards and a touchdown in three seasons with the Wolverines before transferring to the Irish. He played in just three games and caught a single pass for 7 yards in his lone season in South Bend, sustaining a shoulder injury that knocked him out for the season.
Canteen claims two remaining seasons of eligibility, presumably because he could qualify for a medical hardship waiver from his time at Notre Dame.
