Transferring Ohio State safety Isaiah Pryor headed to Notre Dame

A productive weekend in South Bend for Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly got a little better on Sunday afternoon.

According to 247Sports, Ohio State graduate transfer safety Isaiah Pryor has committed to joining the Irish after a pair of visits to campus the past few weeks.

One of the top defensive backs on the transfer market, Pryor was originally a four-star recruit out of the class of 2017 who had offers from all the regulars like Alabama, LSU and, of course the Buckeyes. 247Sports notes his first offer was actually from the Irish so it’s pretty clear the coaching staff is high on what the redshirt junior can do between the lines.

Assuming there’s no holdup, Pryor should have two seasons to play beginning in 2020. That’s big for Notre Dame given that another transfer, Alohi Gilman, will be vacating one of the starting safety spots after this year.

Pryor played in 27 games for Ohio State, starting seven of them in 2018. He recorded 44 tackles during his time in Columbus along with one interception.
