Notre Dame Fighting Irish defensive end Stephon Tuitt has declared he will be back for his senior season.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish defensive end Stephon Tuitt will be back for his senior year.

This was what Tuitt himself told  The Observer, the university's official student newspaper, on Wednesday. He said,"I'm coming back next year. I'm a junior. I still have on year." 

This quells any potentinal rumor about Tuitt entering the 2014 NFL Draft in spite of his mother, Tamara Bartlett, already on the lookout for her son's pro agent. 

According to Pete Sampson of IrishIllustrated.com, the star defensive lineman is seen to be a first-round draft pick next year. Sampson cites ESPN's Mel Kiper, Jr., who says Tuitt is the second-best defensive end in the country behind the South Carolina Gamecocks' highly-touted Jadeveon Clowney. 

In terms of the bigger picture, Tuitt ranks 14th overall among the potential 2014 NFL Draft aspirants listed by Scouts.com. Kiper has Tuitt 11th on his draft board. 

His 12 sacks in the Irish's undefeated 2012 season, just 1.5 shy of the school record being held by the New York Giants' Justin Tuck, garnered national attention. 

A starter in 19 consecutive games for Notre Dame, Tuitt, who had offseason sports hernia surgery, currently has 18 tackles and three sacks this year.

Biggest Storylines Heading into Notre Dame's Fall Camp

Jul 28 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With training camp a week away, the Notre Dame football season is finally upon us. After a star-crossed 2013 season went awry in the spring with the surprise suspension of quarterback Everett Golson, Notre Dame fell short of their lofty goals as injuries struck All-American candidates Stephon Tuitt and Louis Nix and chipped away at the offensive line.  But the 9-4 season is in the rearview mirror. And so is a lot of talent—Tuitt, Nix and captains Zack Martin, TJ Jones and Bennett Jackson are ...

In a little over a week, Notre Dame will open training camp at the Culver Military Academy. While most of the headlines will focus on Everett Golson's return, the biggest question mark as the Irish enter the season is the state of Brian VanGorder's defense. Notre Dame's new defensive coordinator has had 15 practices to work with a young unit that needs to replace Louis Nix III and Stephon Tu ...

Xs and Os: Notre Dame's new defense a complicated overhaul

May 30 2014 9:47am CDT | Source: SBNation

New defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder is replacing Bob Diaco's refined, disciplined 3-4 with a complex, aggressive 4-3. There are some offense-minded head coaches who are invested enough in their programs to recruit and demand excellence from the defensive side of the ball, even if they don't particularly care what the systems or strategies are for achieving it. Notre Dame's Brian Kelly seems to be such a coach. Kelly's Irish offense is an oft-misunder ...
