SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Notre Dame cornerback Munir Prince has decided to transfer, and three other Irish players have applied to return for fifth years.
Linebacker Maurice Crum Jr., a captain of last year's team, defensive end Justin Brown and cornerback Terrail Lambert have applied to the university to return next season for their final year of eligibility. While other schools redshirt players, Notre Dame players who do not participate for a season must earn their degrees and apply for permission to return for another season.
Crum was fourth on the team in tackles last season with 84. Lambert had 34 tackles and Brown made 30.
Prince, one of the quickest players on the Irish roster, was a tailback as a freshman, carrying the ball 15 times for 21 yards. He switched to cornerback last season and was in 10 games, making three tackles. He has decided to transfer to Missouri.
Both starting cornerbacks, Lambert and sophomore Darrin Walls, are expected back next season, and Prince was also behind several other reserves.
``After talking with Munir, he decided he'd like to leave our football team and the university,'' coach Charlie Weis said Tuesday. ``I appreciate all Munir has done for our program and Notre Dame and wish him well in the future.''
