Freddy Canteen announces another transfer, leaving Notre Dame at 86 scholarships
Fri, 25 May 2018 17:59:22 +0000
The hook when receiver Freddy Canteen transferred to Notre Dame was he would get a chance to face his former school to open the 2018 season with Michigan visiting Sept. 1. That storyline will go unfulfilled after Canteen announced another transfer Friday afternoon. Thank you Notre Dame pic.twitter.com/NreSLPncMy — CANTEEN🐾 (@FreddCanteen_) May 25, 2018 Canteen
Notre Dame 99-to-2: No. 80 Micah Jones, receiver, early-enrolled freshman

Listed Measurements: 6-foot-4 ½, 208 pounds 2018-19 year, eligibility: Early-enrolled freshman with four years of eligibility remaining, including the 2018 season.

Just about every sports website last week bore a version of the same headline: “Sports gambling is now legal!” This site did not, in no small part because wagering on sports is hardly more legal now than it was two weeks ago, and for the vast majority of us, that will not change between now

Notre Dame’s defensive line recruiting surge continues with Texas four-star’s commitment
Sat, 19 May 2018 22:17:36 +0000
Defensive line coach Mike Elston predicted Notre Dame would enjoy great recruiting success along its defensive line this cycle. With Saturday’s commitment of consensus four-star defensive end NaNa Osafo-Mensah (Nolan Catholic High School; Fort Worth, Texas), Elston can consider his boasts backed up. “I haven’t had a stronger group of underclassmen that I’m recruiting than

Fri, 18 May 2018 10:00:54 +0000
Listed Measurements: 6-foot-4 ¾, 244 pounds 2018-19 year, eligibility: Senior with two seasons of eligibility remaining, including 2018, though Notre Dame is sometimes stingy in extending fifth-year offers to players who missed a season due to academic issues.

Thu, 17 May 2018 10:00:49 +0000

Listed Measurements: 6-foot-2, 215 pounds 2018-19 year, eligibility: Junior with three seasons of eligibility remaining, including 2018.

Auburn walk-on fullback transfers to Notre Dame, following in family’s footsteps
Tue, 15 May 2018 21:24:24 +0000
Notre Dame will add a familiar last name to its running back depth with the graduate transfer of fullback Keenan Sweeney from Auburn. A former walk-on with the Tigers, Sweeney earned a scholarship before the 2016 season and appeared in nine games over the last two years. Auburn listed Sweeney at 6-foot and 237 pounds.

Monday’s Leftovers: Tricks with jersey numbers; Troy Pride’s sprinter’s speed; Links to read
Mon, 14 May 2018 15:00:54 +0000
Over the coming weekend, the 99-to-2 series will twice rattle off profiles on players wearing No. 85. Early-enrolled freshman tight end George Takacs was assigned the digits this spring, and Notre Dame captain and fifth-year punter Tyler Newsome was wearing 85 long before Takacs arrived. That double-up makes it exceedingly unlikely Takacs will appear in
Notre Dame 99-to-2: No. 90 Tommy Tremble, tight end, incoming freshman
Mon, 14 May 2018 10:00:10 +0000
The jersey numbers of the 20 incoming freshmen are unknown. With the occasional exception like Kyle Rudolph and No. 9, most Notre Dame tight ends wear digits similar to receivers, somewhere in the 80s. With six tight ends on the Irish roster, though, those numbers became scarce. In fact, none are currently available. For now,

Listed Measurements: 6-foot-4 3/8, 251 pounds 2018-19 year, eligibility: Junior with three seasons of eligibility remaining, including 2018.
