Fighting Irish WR Will Mahone no longer enrolled at Notre Dame

An attorney for Notre Dame wide receiver Will Mahone told the Associated Press Tuesday the sophomore is not currently enrolled at the school and is not permitted to return to classes until the resolution of three felony charges filed against the sophomore in June.

"Notre Dame has informed him that as long as there are felonies pending, he is not welcome back," James Gentile said. "He would like to return to Notre Dame. Whether or not he plays football, that's still up in the air."

Mahone has been charged with assault on a police officer, intimidation of a public servant and vandalism, all felonies dating to a June 14 arrest in Austintown, Ohio. Gentile said he hopes to have the charges reduced to misdemeanors before a July 23 hearing.

Per the AP, Austintown police found Mahone highly intoxicated and attempting to fight multiple people. According to police, he eventually threatened to kill his arresting officers and struck one with his head before being arrested.

Mahone was suspended from all Fighting Irish football activities by Brian Kelly two days later. A redshirt sophomore, Mahone arrived in South Bend as a running back and saw limited action as a slot receiver in 2013.

A university spokesperson told the AP Mahone has not been enrolled at the school since June 24.
