Max Redfield, a former starting safety for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, will finish his career at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, according to a tweet by Dan Albano of the Orange County Register.

Redfield was dismissed from the team in August 2016 after being arrested alongside five fellow teammates. The former five-star recruit from Mission Viejo, Calif. pleaded guilty March 21 to possession of a handgun without a license and possession of marijuana. In October, he was separated from the university without finishing his degree. Redfield’s Twitter bio says: “Credits completed at the University of Notre Dame with a philosophy major and a minor in Mandarin Chinese.” He has not been awarded a degree, to our knowledge.

I’m unsure of Reuland’s connection to IUP, although the one-time Notre Dame tight end did graduate from Mission Viejo High School as well. Reuland died Dec. 12 following a brain aneurysm.

Albano also tweeted this quote from Redfield:

If Redfield were to go in the first round of the NFL Draft, he’d be making some history. The Division II level Crimson Hawks have had seven of their players get drafted, but none higher than the third round.
