On Tuesday, the Kansas Jayhawks announced that yet another Notre Dame player will be transferring to Kansas. Tight end Mike Ragone, a sixth-year senior, will be the 3rd player from Notre Dame to transfer to Charlie Weis’s new team.
He recorded just 11 catches for 109 yards in his five years at South bend. Since he was recruited by ND’s former head coach Charlie Weis, it makes sense for him want to play for the Jayhawks.
He will have a 6th year of eligiblity because he suffered a knee injury that made him miss the entire 2008 season and most of the 2011 season. Also, he was arrested in May of 2010 and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Ragone was in the top ten of of his recruiting class for the tight end position. It’s unfortunate that it didn’t work out in Notre Dame, but I’m sure he’ll be comfortable in Charlie Weis’s system.
