Amir Carlisle transfers to Notre Dame

Sad News...

But if a player is unhappy it is best if he moves on with USC dealing with with reduced scholarships.

From ESPN.

USC running back Amir Carlisle is transferring to Notre Dame, according to a report in the South Bend Tribune.

Carlisle, who battled injuries as a 2011 freshman but earned plenty of praise from Trojans coach Lane Kiffin for his efforts, will enroll in school in South Bend beginning Jan. 17 and sit out the 2012 season before retaining three years of eligibility.

"It’ll be good," Duane Carlisle said, according to the report. "He’s got a real clear picture with how he’ll be used, and he’s excited about getting on the field."

Carlisle was a Stanford commit during the 2011 recruiting season but changed his mind and committed to USC fairly late in the process, after his father was let go as the San Francisco 49ers strength and conditioning coach. His father was then hired to a similar position at Purdue in March.

You have to give Kiffin credit, he could have restricted Carlisle to the number of places he wanted to go. Says a lot about Lane.

Carlisle's family left the Bay Area and is now in the Purdue area so it is pretty clear he wanted to be near his family.

We wish him well....
