Notre Dame players to watch

Notre Dame joined the ACC in the 2020 season but has returned as usual. The Irish have important footsteps to fill with Wisconsin Transfer QB Jack Coan set to take over the start job. Former leader Ian Book is now in the NFL after passing nearly 9,000 yards for Notre Dame.

But the Irish should be strong on the ground thanks to RBs Kyren Williams (1,125 yards in 2020) and Chris Tyree (496 meters in 2020).

Defensive, security Kyle Hamilton could be the biggest star. Hamilton earned All-ACC awards and an All-American pick of the third AP team last season with 63 tackles totaling 4.5 tackles for loss and one interception.
