One of the nation's top offensive-line prospects will be shifting his focus to the next level.

Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson, a junior, told Pete Sampson of Irish Illustrated that he's played his final game for the Fighting Irish. Nelson helped ND beat LSU in the Citrus Bowl on Monday.

Underclassmen have until a Jan. 15 deadline to apply for early eligibility into the 2018 NFL Draft.

Nelson took to Twitter later on Monday for a farewell of sorts to his school.
