Good Counsel standout will be a role player in 2019.

Like almost all lanky wide receivers holding scholarship offers from elite universities, Cam Hart has NFL ambitions.

But he also has perspective.

The 6-foot-3, 197 pound product from Good Counsel (Olney, Md.) High School said his first-year goal is “to fit in as much as possible.”

He told the South Bend Tribune: “I don’t expect to come in as a freshman and be the superstar of my team. Usually Notre Dame isn’t known for having those type of freshmen. Just come in, play my role and help as much as I can.”

Hart will need to confront the challenge of a divided focus in his first year. His mother, who raised him along with his grandmother, has endured three brain aneurysms and is currently battling a tumor in her neck.

The 247 Sports Composite has Hart at a ho-hum rank of 750, figuring he’s the 97th best wide receiver available in the 2019 class.

Andy Stefanelli, in his first year as Good Counsel’s coach, is unsurprisingly more bullish:

“He’s a match-up nightmare because of his height and range and speed. He’s a real tough guy to cover one-on-one, so usually he’ll command double coverage.”

Hart joins a wide receiver room that should Kevin Austin, Javon McKinley, Micah Jones, Chris Finke, Joe Wilkins, Lawrence Keys III, Isaiah Robertson, Chase Claypool, Michael Young, Braden Lenzy, Kendall Abdur-Rahman and possibly Miles Boykin. Of those, Hart would be the fourth tallest behind Jones (6-foot-5), Boykin and Claypool (both 6-foot-4).
