This Guy is Going to Play Notre Dame Football: #72 Robert Hainsey

New to the roster is this Freshman OL

Our player profile series continues for the youth and will be done in more LIGHTNING ROUND style than what we are doing with the upperclassmen.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have 21 new recruits on the team ... and we now profile #72 Robert Hainsey.

5 Bullet Points To Think About

  • Coming from IMG Academy, he received high praise from Coach Kevin Wright, especially when referencing how Hainsey had built up more mass.
  • With his 4-star recruiting status, it will be good to get some power up on the offensive line. We will eventually need to replace the powerful and experienced offensive line that we see going into this season.
  • Hainsey is originally from the Pittsburgh, PA, and seems to have a lot of Pittsburgh pride (judging by his Twitter account). He thus finished up his high school career at IMG.
  • It is looking like he will be listed as both a guard and a tackle. It will be interesting to see his development throughout the seasons, and where on the OL he could fit best.
  • The Michigan Wolverines made this cute graphic for him when they offered him, but Robert eventually saw where he needed to call home.
