Oh man that catch by #24 Tommy Tremble has me excited about his potential at tight end. With starter Cole Kmet out with the broken collarbone I look forward to seeing more of Tremble on the field at least early on in the season. There's not a lot of big tight ends that can run legit 4.5 which Tremble did before fall camp. And those hands? Oh my. Just need him to get open for Ian Book this season and we could be talking breakout player for the Fighting Irish.
Pretty much standard stuff here from Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly. Coming out of Day 2 in fall camp at Culver Academies as long as there are no significant injury reports and everyone seems to be moving along as needed I'm happy.
One of the more pressing questions going into year 2 of Ian Book at QB is whether or not he could hit the more intermediate to deep routes to his wide receivers in stride. As good as Book was last year the Notre Dame offense left a lot of points on the field because of misses with the deep throws. This slow motion clip of Book hitting sophomore WR Lawrence Keys in stride shows progress as Keys blows past freshman safety Kyle Hamilton.
Brian Kelly announced today that both Malik Zaire and Deshone Kizer will play in the season opener vs Texas. But he hasn't named a starter.

Brian Kelly said he’d consider playing Zaire and Kizer at the same time. How? “I couldn’t tell you."— Irish Illustrated (@PeteSampson_) August 17, 2016
