The redshirt junior announced his decision to enter the NFL draft on Saturday on Instagram.
After a lot of thought and reflection I have decided to forego my remaining eligibility and declare for the NFL Draft. Thank you to Notre Dame, the coaches, staff, faculty and fans. I couldn't have asked for a better university to play for, it's been an honor to have played with Team 127 and I'm glad to have had the opportunity. I look forward to what lies ahead. Thank you, Go Irish!!!
The 6-foot, 220-pound Prosise played 11 games this season, rushing for 1,032 yards and 11 touchdowns on 156 carries. He added 26 catches for 308 yards and another touchdown.
Prosise, a former ESPN three-star prospect out of Woodberry Forest (Va.) High, joined the Irish in 2012 as a safety before moving to receiver for 2013 and '14. He was moved to the backfield in the spring of 2015 to combat depth issues, and he quickly found himself as the No. 1 back, following the suspension of Greg Bryant and the season-ending knee injury suffered by Tarean Folston.
Given the breakout of freshman Josh Adams this season -- and the potential return of Folston, who will be a redshirt junior in 2016 -- the Irish should be able to weather Prosise's departure.
