Notre Dame Football 2012: OT Jordan Prestwood Leaves Program For 'Personal Reasons'

Notre Dame Fighting Irish offensive tackle Jordan Prestwood has left the program for "personal reasons" recently, as Eric Hansen of the South Bend Tribune reports. The sophomore was expected to be a key back-up for the Irish during the upcoming season, but it appears that he's moving on to something else instead.

Prestwood was once ranked as the No. 130 prospect in the entire nation by ESPNU, but after initially committing with Notre Dame in 2010, he ultimately enrolled at Florida State in the spring of 2011. He then transferred to play for the Irish in an apparent change of heart, although the Plant City, Fla., native seems to be moving on once again.

As recently as Monday, ESPN's Matt Fortuna wrote that Prestwood was competing at left tackle in second-team drills during the team's fall camp in South Bend, but Brian Kelly will now have to find a new lineman to replace him at that spot.
