Former Notre Dame defense end Ronald Talley has decided to transfer to the University of Delaware after leaving Notre Dame in the middle of the season. Talley was rumored to be upset with playing time, or lack there of, this season and was granted his release by Charlie Weis.
According to the Delaware News Journal…
Talley, 20, should be with the Blue Hens in spring practice and will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2007 season. His addition shores up a position where Delaware was plagued by injuries during its 5-6 2006 season and continues to have depth problems.
In 17 career games at Notre Dame, Talley had 34 tackles (10 solos), one sack and two fumble recoveries. He left the team after the sixth game of the 2006 season in what coach Charlie Weis termed an amicable and mutally agreed-upon parting that Talley felt was in his best interests.
Talley played hard while he was at Notre Dame and I wish him all the best at Delaware. The Blue Hens play some local games in my area so I will try to check out a game next year and see how Talley is doing.
