Kofi Wardlow to transfer out of football program

In a tweet sent out Tuesday night, Notre Dame defensive end Kofi Wardlow announced his intent to transfer out of the program.

“I want to thank Coach Kelly, Coach Elston, Coach Lea, the strength coaches, athletic trainers, support staff and the University of Notre Dame for their support of my success,” Wardlow said in the tweet. “I have greatly enjoyed my time playing for the Irish, and the community and relationships I have formed here will always be special to me.”

A three-star prospect and the No. 57 weak-side defensive end in the country per 247Sports Composite, Wardlow appeared in one game as a sophomore and two as a junior, with zero appearances this season. The 6-foot-2 senior from Washington D.C. recorded one tackle in his entire Notre Dame career last season against Boston College.

He had only played football for two years prior to enrolling at Notre Dame. His offer list included such Power Five schools as Maryland, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and Boston College.

Wardlow will receiver his bachelor’s degree from the University after the fall semester.
