  08/10/19 - Ian BookrJr/2021, Notre Dame, 6-0, 208 (DS#13 QB) + More +

  Book was one of about two dozen college quarterbacks to serve as a counselor for the five-day Manning Passing Academy in Thibodaux, La., in late June. "It was an awesome experience," Book said. Irish coach Brian Kelly noticed a change in Book's demeanor following those five days in Louisiana. Noticed by the way he carried himself around the Gug. Like he REALLY belongs. "You come back, and there's kind of a self-realization that, 'I'm pretty good; I can hang with anybody in the country, and I've got to do these things as well,'" Kelly said. "When you're exposed to elite players, that's always a positive thing. It was a positive experience for him."

He completed 68.2 percent of his passes and threw for 2,628 yards with 19 touchdowns last season. Look for him to make a run to surpass all those numbers this season. He believes he can. "You've got to be confident; you've got to know that you're the best one on the field when you're out there and you can lead this team," Book said. "You've got to consistently tell yourself that." Physically, Book looks different than last season, when he played at 203 pounds. He opened camp listed at 212. The added muscle gives him a confidence to weather the rush for a second or two longer, to get out of the pocket and take on would-be tacklers. To push past the bumps and bruises that are bound to surface. He feels good; he looks good. "I took pride in wanting to gain some weight," he said. "I feel strong." - South Bend Tribune

  08/10/19 - Derrik AllenrFr/2023, Notre Dame, 6-1, 220 (DS#999 SS) + More +

  Notre Dame sophomore safety Derrik Allen intends to put his name in the transfer portal, a source close to the situation confirmed to the Tribune. Blue and Gold Illustrated first reported the news on Friday. The former four-star recruit out of the 2018 recruiting class never saw the field as a freshman. He watched as now-incumbent starters Alohi Gilman and Jalen Elliott rarely took plays off. In the spring, Allen lined up as the second-team strong safety behind Elliott, a senior.

June-arriving five-star safety Kyle Hamilton dropped Allen to third-team status. As a senior at Marietta (Ga.) Lassiter, Allen tallied 54 solo tackles, seven pass breakups, three interceptions and three tackles for a loss. Rivals considered Allen as its No. 11 safety nationally and No. 135 overall player, while 247Sports slated him No. 12 at the position and No. 161 overall. - South Bend Tribune

  08/09/19 - Julian OkwaraSr/2020, Notre Dame, 6-5, 240 (DS#1 OLB) + More +

  Okwara is garnering plenty of national attention based on who he was last year (team-leading 8 sacks and school-record 21 QB hurries). But the old script isn't nearly as impressive as the new one. He's now 6-5, 248 pounds, up from the 241 he was listed at last season. The may not sound like a lot, but it certainly looks like it. What that looked like Thursday was Okwara relentlessly bursting past Notre Dame's best offensive lineman in 2018, right tackle Robert Hainsey, in 11-on-11 practice periods on passing downs. "He's way more physical," said senior Khalid Kareem, Okwara's book end at the other end of the Irish defensive line. "He's using a lot more technique too this year. "He's always been a good technician, but he's honing that skill so much more. Watch out for Julian Okwara." - South Bend Tribune

  08/08/19 - Cole KmetJr/2021, Notre Dame, 6-5, 255 (DS#7 TE) + More +

  Notre Dame suffered its first injury to an expected starter of 2019 on Thursday with reports of starting tight end Cole Kmet breaking his collarbone in practice. A broken collarbone is usually a 4-6 week recovery time. If that is how long Kmet is out, it's not ideal, but it's far from disastrous at the same time. That kind of timeframe would likely mean a return in time for Notre Dame's trip to Athens, if not sooner. Brian Kelly has not yet confirmed Kmet's injury, but he will likely have some update on Saturday when he is scheduled to meet with the media. Now, if that update gives us a more prolonged timeframe on Kmet's recovery time, then it could be a different story. - UNHD.com

  2019 PRESEASON WUERFFEL TROPHY WATCH LIST: Jalen Elliott, Notre Dame, Senior, DB,...Elliott has established himself as one of the most active Notre Dame student-athletes in terms of community service. He's been among the five most active Irish student-athletes in terms of service hours since he arrived on campus. Elliott captured the Notre Dame athletics Community Champion Award for the 2018-19 year. This award was established to recognize the contributions of a Notre Dame student-athlete to the University community and the community at large who embodies the spirit of leadership, commitment and selflessness, and who strives to make Notre Dame - as Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C, put it - "a healing, unifying, enlightening force for a world deeply in need." Conferring this award recognizes student-athletes who study for the sake of learning, give for the sake of giving and understand that personal accomplishment is never achieved alone. - Notre Dame Football
