Notre Dame linebacker/defensive end Kolin Hill will transfer from the school.
Hill, a sophomore, played defensive end in nine games for the Fighting Irish last season. In the spring, he saw practice time at linebacker.
As a freshman, Hill recorded seven tackles and two sacks, including a one-and-a-half sack game against rival Michigan.
The Fighting Irish open the 2015 season on Sept. 5 at home against Texas. Notre Dame is ranked fourth in Sports Illustrated's preseason rankings.
