                === Notre Dame WR Walker transfers to UMass ===
 
 Amherst,  MA  (Sports Network) - Former  Notre Dame wide receiver Deion Walker
 has transferred to the University of Massachusetts.
 
 Walker,  who  was a redshirt as  a true freshman  in 2008, will be eligible to
 play for the school this season, using his fifth year of eligibility.
 
 "We are very excited about having Deion join us for the upcoming season," said
 Minutemen  head coach Charley Molnar. "Having worked with Deion at Notre Dame,
 he is a terrific person and will make the most of this opportunity. Along with
 Hafis  Williams and Michael  Cox, Deion will also be able to make an immediate
 impact on the program -- both on and off the field."
 
 Walker played in seven games for the Irish from 2009-11.
 
 After years in the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA),
 Massachusetts  will begin  FBS play in the Mid-American Conference this coming
