Next on the list for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish is Senior Offensive Lineman, Jimmy Byrne. Byrne is a 6’4 295 pounder from St. Ignatius high school in Cleveland, Ohio. Byrne looks to find some time as a backup tackle or on special teams heading into the year. He has struggled to crack the field thus far, but has been a staple on the practice squad.

Jimmy, “Can ya feel the” Byrne
Byrne will most likely not see any time barring significant injuries or garbage time play. However, I do absolutely respect his hustle from his commitment video. He should hopefully see some time on snapping special teams plays. Hopefully he can make it on to PAT so he can be a part of the hottest special teams play in college football.
