“My heart truly wanted to return to Notre Dame, but it has also been a lifelong dream to play football in the NFL,” Fuller said in a statement. “After taking all of this into lengthy consideration, I believe it is in my best interest to forgo my senior season and enter the 2016 draft. I came to Notre Dame to earn a degree from the greatest University in the world, and I will still accomplish that goal.”
Fuller had 62 catches for 1,258 yards and 14 touchdowns this season for Notre Dame. The 6’0”, 184-pound wide receiver recorded 76 catches for 1,094 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore last year.
Fuller had six catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in Notre Dame’s 44–28 loss to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Day.
