UConn a possible landing spot for former Notre Dame safety?

Pete Sampson from Irish Illustrated tweeted not too long ago that Eilar Hardy was released from his scholarship at Notre Dame and UConn is among the possible schools he could transfer to.

Eilar Hardy has been released from his scholarship at ND and will transfer after graduation. BG, Miami (OH), Purdue, UConn possibilities.

Hardy started against Pittsburgh and Brigham Young during the 2013 season, recording eight of his 26 tackles that season in the game against the Cougars. He played in five games in 2014 and finished with nine tackles. With Hardy set to graduate, he will be eligible to play immediately.

Hardy was one of the players originally suspended as part of an academic investigation. Hardy was reinstated after being held out of seven games and had eight of his nine tackles against USC in the regular-season finale.

Obviously UConn coach Bob Diaco is rather familiar with Hardy as he was the defensive coordinator during Hardy's best season at Notre Dame.
