Report: Ragone headed to KU

Once a four-star prospect and ranked the No. 2 tight end in the Class of 2007, Notre Dame senior Mike Ragone appears poised to join the Kansas Jayhawks in May, per a report in the South Bend Tribune, after the NCAA granted him a sixth year of eligibility.

South Bend (IN) Tribune beat writer Eric Hansen has issued a report that Thursday the NCAA granted Notre Dame tight end Mike Ragone a sixth-year of eligibility, and that the former four-star prospect out of Cherry Hill, N.J. will transfer to the University of Kansas this summer. The move to the Jayhawks would reunite Ragone with former head coach Charlie Weis and teammate Dayne Crist.

The big tight end, once renowned for his outstanding athleticism, had an injury-plagued career with the Irish - missing the 2008 season entirely and virtually all of 2011 with torn ACLs.

During his career, he registered 11 receptions for 109 yards. In later years, however, he was lauded by Notre Dame fans for his run-blocking skills.
