Former four-star Notre Dame corner announces transfer to UMass


The Minutemen are adding a former four-star recruit of the Fighting Irish to the program.

Noah Boykin, who entered the NCAA transfer portal in the spring, has announced he is moving his game to Massachusetts. Boykin announced his plans with a message on Twitter, which showed off how he looks in a UMass football uniform.

There was no reason given for Boykin’s decision to transfer, but he is clearly ready to get started with his new program in hopes of getting some playing time and an opportunity to shine.

Boykin was a member of Notre Dame’s Class of 2018. He chose the Irish over offers from Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma, USC, and more. Due to NCAA transfer rules, Boykin will have to sit out the upcoming 2019 season before being ruled eligible to play at the FBS level again. Boykin will have three years of eligibility to use once the 2020 season begins.
