CHRIS GOFF | The Journal Gazette

Notre Dame's Spencer Perry, a backup safety, announced Thursday that he has decided to transfer.

"Thanks to the University of Notre Dame for the opportunity to pursue my education and play football," Perry wrote in a message posted to his Twitter account. "All the best to my advisors, professors, rector, teammates, coaches and the Fighting Irish fans. At this time, I am electing to transfer and continue my educational goals and football career elsewhere."

Perry played in six games as a freshman special-teams contributor in 2016.
