It’s transfer portal season for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the rest of college football. There will be many, many names that enter the portal, and the Irish won’t be immune to a large handful of players seeking a chance to play elsewhere. On Monday evening, Notre Dame wide receiver Chris Tyree announced his decision to enter the transfer portal with one year of eligibility remaining.

“I’d like to start by saying thank you to the entire Notre Dame community for giving me the experience of a lifetime as a student-athlete,” noted Tyree in a written statement. “I am especially grateful to my coaches, professors, friends, and most importantly my teammates for making this journey unforgettable. My love for this university will never waver, and I will always be proud to say that I earned my degree from Notre Dame. The relationships that I’ve built over the last four years will be cherished for the rest of my life. Notre Dame will forever hold a special place in my heart.”
“After many conversations and prayer, I’ve come to the heartfelt decision to enter my name into the transfer portal as a graduate.”
Tyree was a top 100 recruit as a running back and one of Notre Dame’s biggest recruiting wins over the past decade. He enrolled at Notre Dame in 2020 and immediately saw playing time. Tyree made the fulltime switch to wide receiver this past season after starting his career as a running back, and then more like a utility player. Chris was a dangerous special teams threat with one of his most memorable plays at Notre Dame being a kickoff return for touchdown against the Wisconsin Badgers.
Good luck to Chris wherever he may end up.
