Notre Dame linebacker Nolan Ziegler has entered the transfer portal. While there was never any type of official announcement from Ziegler, his Instagram story did have a link to a tweet with the story.

Ziegler was a 4-Star recruit coming out of Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2022. He was considered as a prospect with a ton of upside at the linebacker position, and he started to make his mark on the scout team as a freshman. Last year, Ziegler left the Irish football program for a period of time due to “personal reasons.” He did eventually return, and seemed motivated to move forward.

Ziegler has already acknowledged one public offer as a transfer and it’s from the Central Michigan Chippewas.

A physical and mental hit like what Ziegler went through is extremely tough to overcome, but by all accounts, he has the support system to help him through this and on a path of success.

Good luck to Nolan in whatever he does next.
