Ty Proffitt

Sophomore guard Ty Proffitt has decided to leave the University of Notre Dame. He will transfer into another school. The little used guard has already withdrawn from the university.

Proffitt did not play much in his freshmen season. He played in only 8 games last season. That was for a total of only 22 minutes. He averaged 1 point a game and 0.4 rebounds.

Proffitt made his decision after the Fighting Irish returned from a 13-day trip to Ireland. Notre Dame, as a team, was very successful on the trip, going 6-0 against Ireland, Poland and Iceland.

Coach Mike Brey said before the Ireland trip that everyone would get a look. This was particularly important for all of last season's freshman class which includes Ty Nash, Carlton Scott, Tim Abromaitis and Proffitt. Nash and Scott saw major minutes. But, Proffitt did not. Perhaps Proffitt also saw the depth at the guard position. The Irish have senior Kyle McAlarney, junior Tory Jackson and junior Jonathan Peoples at guard. Even beyond this season, with McAlarney graduating, Mississippi State transfer Ben Hansbrough waits in the wings. Hansbrough has two seasons of eligibility remaining. So, apparently, Proffitt was caught in the numbers crunch and saw little playing time in the future.

Proffitt was a three-year starter at South Laurel High School in London, Kentucky. He led his team to the Kentucky State Championship as a sophomore. He was a varsity player since he was in the eighth grade. As a senior, he averaged 16.2 points per game, 3.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists. He was a candidate for Player of the Year in Kentucky.
