Notre Dame tight end Mike Ragone was granted a sixth year of eligibility, but instead of returning to South Bend Ragone has decided to use his last year by transferring to the Kansas Jayhawks. Ragone was given an extra year after tearing his ACL in the third game last year.
The move is not too surprising since new Kansas head coach Charlie Weis recruited and coached Ragone at Notre Dame. Out of high school Ragone was a four-star player and the nation's No. 3 tight end, but injuries derailed his career. In addition to tearing his ACL in 2011, Ragone missed the entire 2008 season with a knee injury. During his time at Notre Dame Ragone accrued only 11 passes for 109 yards.
Ragone is the second Notre Dame player to transfer to Kansas, the other is quarterback Dayne Crist who announced the move back in December.
