Notre Dame Fighting Irish nose tackle Louis Nix III has officially declared for the 2014 NFL Draft.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish nose tackle Louis Nix III has officially declared for the 2014 NFL draft. 

According to a Dec. 8 Associated Press report, Nix was able to find an agent and "will forego his final year of eligibility to enter the NFL draft." Many league experts project Nix to be a first-round draft pick. 

The Chicago Tribune's Brian Hamilton identified the agents as Todd France and Bryan Aryault. 

To confirm that he's not coming back to Notre Dame anymore, Nix uploaded an Instagram photo "taken from a car pulling away from Notre Dame with the Golden Dome reflected in the side driver's side mirror," per ESPN. 

The photo was featured in Josh Sanchez's piece for FanSided.com and can be seen here

When asked to comment on Nix's move, Irish head coach Brian Kelly said,"The rest of those (decisions), you're splitting hairs. We'll find out, because you're taking a gamble no matter what."

Nix played his last game for the Irish on Nov. 21 when he had surgery "to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee," according to the Associated Press report.

On that day, Nix said of Notre Dame,"This is a great place. It's a great university. It's done a lot for my life. I feel like if I did come back it would do numerous things for me and help me out. There's a lot of choices on both sides."

The 22-year-old nose tackle, who calls himself "Irish Chocolate," is a Film and Television and Theatre major who took 19 hours of classes this semester so he can earn his degree.  

Nix is a Jacksonville, Fla. native who recorded 27 tackles in his senior season at Notre Dame.

How Germany 7, Brazil 1 Compares to Alabama 42, Notre Dame 14

Jul 9 2014 11:06am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The first five goals in Germany's 7-1 slaughter of Brazil in Tuesday's World Cup semifinal came in a span of less than 20 minutes. Each one represented a stage of grief experienced (a la the Kubler-Ross model) by the host country: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.  It's easy to be hyperbolic since people are creatures of the moment, but what happened to Brazil has the makings of the worst sports meltdown that anyone can seem to remember. ...

With the turnover on the roster over the last several seasons, expect many new players to be asked to step up and into important roles on the Houston Texans' roster this season.
