Aaron Lynch Transfer: Notre Dame DE Leaving School And Could Be Headed To South Florida, According To Reports

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are about to take a big hit, as starting defensive end Aaron Lynch has left the team and will transfer to a school in his home state of Florida after the spring semester, according to Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports. Lynch's recruitment back in 2011 was tense, as the DE prospect first committed to Notre Dame, de-committed and committed to Florida State and then de-committed to FSU and signed on with ND football. Here's what Feldman initially reported, via Twitter:

Lynch missed practice Wednesday and was excused for personal reasons, which coach Brian Kelly initially downplayed, but Kelly didn't exactly take to recent news that Lynch plans to transfer quite as well, according to Feldman:

As for where Lynch could be headed, Josh Newberg of 247sports.com thinks he will be headed to the University of South Florida this summer and Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports is reporting that Lynch said "I want to go back home to Florida."
