Notre Dame junior WR C.J. Sanders will transfer.
Sanders (5'8/185) will be moving on as a graduate, meaning that he will be able to play immediately with his new program once the 2018 season boots up. The junior wideout was a four-star recruit coming out of high school. He logged a 24-293-2 receiving line for the 2016 campaign, but managed one catch during the current season. He's an excellent kick returner and at the very least would help his new team in that capacity. Per 247Sports, Vanderbilt is a program to watch for this transfer. Jan 2 - 1:04 PM

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly pointed to sophomore WRs C.J. Sanders and Equanimeous St. Brown as players who need to step up opposite Torii Hunter Jr.

The Irish lost Will Fuller and Chris Brown to the NFL, plus Corey Robinson retired, so plenty of new names will be catching passes from Malik Zaire or Deshone Kizer. Sanders caught one pass for no yards last year. St. Brown matched that one catch, but traveled eight yards on his reception. If these receivers can step up, Notre Dame can absolutely be a real contender.

Notre Dame freshman WR C.J. Sanders will retain kick return duties for Saturday's showdown with Navy.

Sanders fumbled on a return in last Saturday's 24-22 loss to Clemson, but HC Brian Kelly is apparently willing to stick with the 5-foot-8, 185-pound freshman. He was listed as the team's lead kick returner in advance of Saturday's game against Navy. Sanders is averaging 9.1 yards on his punt returns--the best ever under Kelly. He was a track star in high school and certainly has the speed to succeed, assuming he can hold on to the ball moving forward.
