Notre Dame is losing yet another young wide receiver, as Irish Breakdown has learned that rising sophomore Jay Brunelle plans to enter his name into the transfer portal.
Brunelle is the second wideout from the 2020 recruiting class to enter the portal, having joined former Top 100 recruit Jordan Johnson, who did the same in May. Johnson ended up at Central Florida.
Brunelle came to Notre Dame from Shrewsbury (Mass.) Saint Johns as part of the 2020 class. He attended Notre Dame's Irish Invasion camp the summer before his senior year and had an excellent performance, which earned him an offer. The 6-1, 199-pound receiver battled injuries and a non-Covid related illness as a freshman, which kept him from making much of an impact on the depth chart.
Brunelle is the fourth receiver to transfer out from Notre Dame, joining Johnson, Micah Jones and Kendall Abdur-Rahman. Notre Dame now enters the 2021 season with just nine scholarship receivers, and five of them are seniors. Notre Dame now has just one receiver recruit left on the roster or at the wide receiver position from the 2019 and 2020 classes combined.
Brunelle has yet to decide where he intends to transfer to, but he will no longer be at Notre Dame.
