Notre Dame readmits suspended receiver Daniels

DaVaris Daniels

Wide receiver DaVaris Daniels has been given another chance at Notre Dame. The previously suspended receiver has been readmitted to the university.

Daniels were suspended for academic reasons, although the details of the suspensions have not been made public. The Fighting Irish are also welcoming back quarterback Everett Golson this fall after coming back from academic problems. Golson was forced to leave the football team and school prior to the start of the 2013 season, but Golson has since re-enrolled at Notre Dame and will likely be the starting quarterback for the Irish this fall, although head coach Brian Kelly has said Golson will not be handed the starting job.

Because he was not enrolled for the spring, Daniels did not participate in any spring football practices or workouts with the Irish.

“I understand that attending then University of Notre Dame is a privilege and with that comes a certain level of academic responsibility,” Daniels said in a statement in January. “Therefore I will not be attending Notre Dame the spring semester but fully expect to re-enroll in the summer semester to earn my degree and continue playing football for the Irish.”

Daniels was Notre Dame’s second-leading receiver in 2013 with 49 receptions for 745 yards. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

    Does anyone proof read their articles anymore. The following sentence makes NO sense. “Daniels were suspended for academic reasons, although the details of the suspensions have not been made public”. Daniels “were” suspended? The details if the suspension(s). Was he suspended more than once? This is an embarrassment. Is it really on an NBC Sports website. I would expect a freshman in high school to use better sentence structure and grammar.

    The sad thing is Kelly needs every player to keep his job.
