Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton announced on Friday that he intends to enter the 2022 NFL Draft.
A junior, Hamilton is considered one of the top talents in college football. He played in seven games this season, missing the final five regular-season contests due to a knee injury. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder (school measurements) posted 35 tackles (two for loss) and three interceptions in 2021.
He also announced he will not play in the Jan. 1 Fiesta Bowl vs. Oklahoma State.
As an underclassman, Hamilton has until Jan. 17 to file declaration papers with the league.
