Notre Dame DE Ishaq Williams denied appeal by NCAA, won't play in 2015
Ishaq Williams was suspended as part of Notre Dame's investigations into academics and though he is back in school he will not be allowed to play in 2015.
Notre Dame defensive end Ishaq Williams is re-enrolled in classes but will not be allowed to play with the Fighting Irish in 2015 after the NCAA denied his waiver request.
Williams was one of four players suspended as part of Notre Dame's internal investigation into academics and missed the entire 2014 season. Brian Kelly told reporters Thursday that Williams will remain on scholarship and can work out in the team's facilities, but is not allowed to practice with the team and will not count toward the program's count of 85 scholarships.
Williams was one of three highly-touted defensive linemen from Notre Dame's 2011 recruiting class, but totaled only 45 tackles, six tackles for loss, one sack and one forced fumble in 35 games during his first three years. According to ESPN's Matt Fortuna, Williams' future plans -- since 2015 was set to be his final year of eligibility -- are not clear at this point.
