Notre Dame TE George Takacs enters transfer portal
Notre Dame tight end George Takacs is entering the transfer portal, he announced on Monday morning.
Takacs was the Irish’s No. 2 tight end last season behind Michael Mayer. He caught 3 passes for 36 yards and 1 touchdown. Here’s his announcement:

“To my teammates, you all have made Notre Dame my home,” he wrote in-part. “Playing with you has brought me more joy and camaraderie than I possibly could have imagined. You all are my brothers for life and I cannot thank you enough for the best years of my life.
Takacs was a 4-star prospect in the class of 2018. He’s originally from Naples, Florida. It’s currently unclear where he may target as a transfer destination, but there are certainly several programs in the Sunshine State who could use a tight end of his caliber.
Takacs will be a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining. He ends his Notre Dame career with 8 catches for 78 yards and 2 touchdowns.
This does leave Notre Dame a bit thin at tight end, but Mayer is one of the premier players at that position in the country. If he’s healthy, Notre Dame will be in good shape. The Irish also have 4-star tight end Eli Raridon coming in the class of 2022.
