Senior WR DaVaris Daniels' father tweeted his son is done playing for Notre Dame.
Daniels was one of the five Notre Dame players suspended during an investigation into academic fraud. The process has taken four months, and an announcement had been expected for weeks. The older Daniels says his son will "weigh his options for the future." The futures of CB KeiVarae Russell, DE Ishaq Williams, LB Kendall Moore and DB Eilar Hardy should be reported on soon.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the five players suspended from Notre Dame during an investigation into academic fraud are not likely to play this season.

The program has stayed relatively quiet about the investigation into WR DaVaris Daniels, CB KeiVarae Russell, DE Ishaq Williams, LB Kendall Moore and DB Eilar Hardy, though Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly had said he thought the cases would be resolved by the end of last week. The Tribune reported that its source for the story "corroborates what the website Irish Illustrated reported Wednesday, that the five are not likely to play this season."

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly announced Tuesday during his news conference that the school's rulings on five suspended players was "imminent."

Last month, the Fighting Irish suspended WR DaVaris Daniels, CB KeiVarae Russell, DE Ishaq Williams, LB Kendall Moore and DB Eilar Hardy while investigating claims of academic fraud. The school said it had evidence that students had turned in papers and homework that had been written for them by others. On July 29, it turned that evidence over to the compliance office on athletics. "I think the overriding thought for me is six weeks is a long time; there's no way that somebody's going to come back in and start on Saturday," Kelly said when asked what role the players would play if they were ruled eligible. "We'll see how it plays out. If in fact we do have a player back, we'll try to get them an opportunity to contribute, but it would have to be in a limited role."

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly announced that the hearings of five players suspended for violating the school's academic conduct policy will take place by the end of next week.

Last month, the Fighting Irish suspended WR DaVaris Daniels, CB KeiVarae Russell, DE Ishaq Williams, LB Kendall Moore and DB Eilar Hardy while investigating claims of academic fraud. The quintet will miss their fourth game of the season against Syracuse in MetLife Stadium on Saturday. "It’s a very complicated situation, obviously," Kelly told ESPN.com. "There are a lot of pieces here. There are NCAA implications, certainly. We’re probably going down a path that [we've] never gone before, so there are things there." The school announced in its initial statement revealing the suspensions that it had received "evidence that students had submitted papers and homework that had been written for them by others."

Notre Dame senior WR DaVaris Daniels insists he writes his own papers and likely maintained as much to university officials in an interview this week, reports CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler.

The Irish's leading returning receiver (49 catches for 745 yards and seven touchdowns last season) was one of four players (CB KeiVarae Russell, DL Ishaq Williams and LB Kendall Moore were the others) suspended while the university completes an investigation into academic fraud. "He said he wrote all his papers," a source said of Daniels. "They asked him about some emails and papers that he wrote. He told them what he knew." The school says it is in possession of evidence that a handful of students submitted papers written for them by others. Davis, according to the source, was sensitive to academic issues after he was suspended for a poor GPA in the spring.

Notre Dame senior WR DaVaris Daniels will miss spring practice due to an academic issue.

Daniels "fully expect[s] to re-enroll in the summer semester to earn my degree and continue playing football." He caught 49 passes for 745 yards and seven touchdowns this year and will almost certainly enter next season as the school's leading receiver.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly announced junior WR DaVaris Daniels will play against Michigan.

Daniels appeared to suffer a groin strain during last weekend's game against Temple. The junior caught three passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns in that contest. He and TJ Jones make up a nice receiving duo for quarterback Tommy Rees.

Despite previous rumors to the contrary, junior WR DaVaris Daniels is still enrolled at Notre Dame.

After recovering from a broken collarbone, Daniels caught 31 passes for 490 yards and no touchdowns in 2012. There's no reason to expect anything less of him in 2013, other than uncertainty at the quarterback position.

Notre Dame sophomore WR DaVaris Daniels has returned to practice after healing from a broken collarbone.

Daniels had been sidelined since November 11, but his return will be welcomed by Everett Golson. "He looks really good," Kelly said. "He's going to be able to be a key contributor for us." His larger frame may help Notre Dame's other tall target, Tyler Eifert, see more single coverage.
