Former Notre Dame defensive end Jay Hayes will transfer to Oklahoma, he announced on Sunday evening. The former four-star recruit will have one year of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-4, 290 pound defensive lineman announced that he would be leaving Notre Dame on Friday, Apr. 6. He was on the grad transfer market for only nine days, and will be immediately eligible for the Sooners in the 2018 season. It will be interesting to see what he can do in a conference with several high-powered offenses.

Hayes figures to play a significant role on the defensive line after the Sooners lost starter D.J. Ward to graduation.

Hayes was one of more than a dozen prospects that took official visits to Norman, OK for the Sooners' annual Spring Game. He registered 27 tackles, four quarterback hurries, two pass breakups and one sack.
