Notre Dame got the answer it was looking for to one of the biggest questions it was facing this off-season. Senior to be left tackle Ronnie Stanley will be returning to Notre Dame for his senior season per his own Twitter account.

Stanley had been considering leaving early for the NFL after many draft prognosticators had pegged him as a potential 1st round pick. The NFL Advisory Committee, however, reportedly did not give Stanley a 1st round grade with their evaluation.
Stanley’s return, like that of Sheldon Day, is a huge boost for the Notre Dame offensive which now returns all five starting linemen from the Music City Bowl victory over LSU.
We’ll have much more on Stanley’s return and what it means for Notre Dame in 2015 and beyond, but for now Irish fans can celebrate another off the field victory for the 2015 season.
