Everett Golson was suspended by Notre Dame for poor academic judgement in May but the 20-year-old vows to return.
“I will be returning in the spring, that’s pretty much it,” Golson told television station WPDE in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Golson was part of a Notre Dame team that appeared in the BCS National Championship game this year.
“I’ve been working out, keeping my head up,” Golson said. “I’ve had a little adversity but I’ve learned you can’t sit down and just take that, you got to pick yourself back up and keep going forward and continue doing what you were doing and everything is going to work itself out in the end.”
Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly announced Tommy Rees as the teams starter for the upcoming season.
