It never is easy to lose a commit from a skill position, but it happens. If you’re Notre Dame, it especially hurts to know that you’ve lost a running back at a time when Kyren Williams just turned pro. That running back is Sedrick Irvin Jr., who tweeted the time has come to explore his options once again:
Irvin committed to the Irish in September, though it isn’t clear if Brian Kelly’s presence at the time had anything to do with it. On the flip side, Tommy Rees and Deland McCullough haven’t left South Bend, so it’s doubtful they had anything to do with this new decision unless they and Irvin had some sort of falling out. Maybe he feels threatened by the possible addition of Jayden Limar in the same recruiting class?
Whatever the reason, it’s regrettable the relationship between Irvin and the Irish didn’t work out, and we wish him well as he ponders where to go now.
