NOW: Final adjustments ahead of the Blue-Gold game

SOUTH BEND, Ind -- The Irish are adjusting to a new offensive weapon in the receiving room ahead of the Blue-Gold game.

It’s no secret that everyone wants to know how the receiving corps is coming along with the ACC passing touchdown leader Sam Hartman.

Aside from Mayer’s 800 plus receiving yards last year, Jayden Thomas was next with 361.

This year, the Irish plan on changing the perception on Notre Dame receivers with Hartman’s passing ability and most recently the addition of Chris Tyree in the room, after hauling in 24 catches for 130 yards and two touchdowns last season.

“He's such a veteran presence. And he's not like anyone we've had in our room. You know, he has great acceleration. He's shown great hands,” said receivers’ coach Chansi Stuckey.

“I feel like that's the part that I liked the most just having so much space out there and being able to use a little bit more creativity, having a plan with my route running and stuff like that. That's what I've been working with, with Coach Doug and coach Parker,” Tyree mentioned.

“I was expecting a bigger curve, but you know, by, by practice two or three, you can see hey, this dude can really help us and he's really bought into learning He takes coaching you know, he's very cerebral. But he's brought an element of speed element of short area quickness, you know, that we didn't have in the room. So, he's been a great asset,” Stuckey added.

The addition of Tyree has been one of the highlights on offense this off-season and the first glimpse of the shifty offensive weapon will come on April 22nd at 2pm.
