NOTRE DAME (www.incnow.tv) - Bishop Dwenger grad and Notre Dame All American tight end Tyler Eifert, to little surprise, says he will skip his senior season of football with the Irish and enter next April's NFL Draft.

Eifert made his decision known early Tuesday after the Irish's 42-14 loss to Alabama in the BCS Championship game.

Eifert caught six passes for 61 yards in that game, finishing with 50 catches for 685 yards and four touchdowns.
