Notre Dame football will hit practice number 10 of the spring on Saturday. It's a particularly important spring for the Irish wide receivers, who will have opportunities to prove themselves as consistent playmakers this fall. To discuss wide receiver play, Tyler James and Eric Hansen leaned on someone who knows a little bit about having a breakout season at Notre Dame: wide receiver Miles Boykin, who cashed in on a big-time effort in 2018 to become a third-round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens.
Notre Dame finished the 2021 recruiting cycle with a class ranked in the top 10 on both Rivals and 247Sports — ninth and tenth, respectively — for the first time since 2013 despite not being able to host recruits since March 2020. The Irish successfully navigated a recruiting cycle spent mostly in a dead period thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. But still, Kelly opted to keep tinkering rather than keep the status quo.
How might the Irish approach and navigate the new NCAA rule that allows transfers to be immediately eligible once?
