Hardy announces move to Bowling Green

| Monday, February 2, 2015

Former Irish safety Eilar Hardy announced Monday he will continue his college career at Bowling Green.

“I will be headed to Bowling Green to play,” Hardy tweeted Monday evening.

Notre Dame granted Hardy a release from his scholarship in January.

The Reynoldsburg, Ohio, native was withheld from practice and competition during Notre Dame’s inquiry into “suspected academic dishonesty.” After not appearing in Notre Dame’s first eight games, Hardy played in all five final games. The senior safety totaled nine tackles.

Hardy debuted in 2013, appearing in 10 games and notching two starts.
