Luatua was a 247Sports four-star recruit in the class of 2014, and 247Sports was among the sites to report in late January he intended to leave South Bend.

More from FoxSports

The 6-2.5, 255-pound product of La Mirada, Calif., played in 10 games in each of the past two seasons but did not catch a pass.

He visited BYU over the weekend, and that is his expected landing spot per a report from Saturday.

During an exclusive interview with Tyler Luatua last night, he informed me he's decided to transfer from ND to BYU. (.@luatua13)

Tight end was not a high impact position for the Fighting Irish last season, in part because of injuries.
