Wide receiver Justin Ferguson is transferring from Notre Dame to Western Michigan. On Friday, Western Michigan coach P.J. Fleck confirmed Ferguson was transferring to the school and was already on campus.

Ferguson is a pretty nice get for Western Michigan. He was a four-star receiver out of Hollywood, Florida in the 2012 recruiting class.

It was announced that Ferguson was transferring from Notre Dame at the end of March, along with fellow Irish receiver Davonte' Neal. At the time, Ferguson's father said the reason his son was transferring was "more a level of comfort." He appeared in 11 games last season but caught only one pass for nine yards.

As per NCAA rules, Ferguson will have to sit out the 2013 season and will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2014. So, in a way, you can consider Ferguson another member of Western Michigan's 2014 recruiting class. A recruiting class that already has 19 other members and is ranked at No. 34 in's team rankings.

The next highest MAC team is Ball State at No. 71.
