According to multiple reports -- and first reported by Irish Illustrated -- safety Chris Badger will transfer from Notre Dame to BYU. Badger, a reserve safety buried on the depth chart, committed to Notre Dame in June of 2009 but spent two years on a mission for the LDS church to Ecuador before returning to South Bend last year.

Badger did not play last fall for the Irish in what was his freshman season.

The Provo, Utah native was rated by Rivals as a three-star recruit in the class of 2010.

Badger wasn't likely to see the field this fall, with Austin Collinsworth, Matthias Farley, Elijah Shumate, Eilar Hardy, Max Redfield and John Turner all ahead of him in the safety pecking order.
