Eric Hansen of the South Bend Tribune has confirmed Irish senior tight end Mike Ragone has enrolled for the summer semester at Notre Dame.

Ragone was arrested on May 8 and charged with suspicion of possession of marijuana. He pleaded not guilty on May 17.

Ragone starred in April's Blue Gold Game, catching six passes for 73 yards and a short touchdown. He's slated for backup duty behind pre-season All-America candidate Kyle Rudolph.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly spoke highly of Ragone at the conclusion of the spring, stating:

"Ragone's a tough kid. He's going to help us; he's going to move the chains for us and do some things that allow us to get into two tight ends as well. He's very important in terms of what we're going to get into during the fall."

A senior by class, Ragone can apply for a medical redshirt and fifth season of football eligibility following the 2010 campaign due to a pre-season knee injury suffered in August 2008 which kept him sidelined for the entire season. Top Stories
