SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Wide receiver Corey Holmes plans to transfer to another school after graduating from Notre Dame this summer, becoming the third Fighting Irish player announcing plans to leave after a disappointing season.
Holmes, a 6-foot, 190-pound receiver from Pembroke Pines, Florida, played in just two games as a freshman and didn’t play as a sophomore before finishing his junior season with 11 catches for 96 yards. He had four catches for 29 yards as the Irish were beaten 45-27 by Southern California in the final game to finish 4-8.
Backup quarterback Malik Zaire and reserve offensive lineman John Montelus, both seniors, previously announced they are transferring. Zaire started two games at quarterback in 2015 before a broken ankle ended his season. Montelus played in two games this season.
