Senior forward Elijah Burns has left the University of Notre Dame men’s basketball team effective immediately and will seek a transfer at the end of the semester.


Glenn and Stacey Murphy Head Men’s Basketball Coach Mike Brey –

“We fully support Elijah in his decision to move on from the University of Notre Dame following his graduation in December. We will provide any assistance he may need as he takes the next step in his academic and playing careers.


It is always tough when one of our guys doesn’t end his career here, but we are proud that he will achieve the ultimate goal of any student-athlete that comes through our program – to leave Notre Dame with a degree from one of the top institutions in the country.”

Burns has a full year of eligibility remaining after sitting out his freshman season at Notre Dame (2015-16).
