The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about all of them. One Foot Down’s player profile series will take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2018 season.
#31 Jack Lamb
Jack Lamb will be a freshman for Notre Dame during the 2018 football season. Lamb is a 6’4 and 216 pound linebacker. He is from Temecula, California where he went to Great Oak High School. Jack Lamb was also one of the players who early enrolled this past spring. He was able to see the college game and get acclimated a few months before the rest of his 2018 class. Jack Lamb is a name to remember this season.
Three Things To Know About Jack Lamb:
- Lamb signed with Notre Dame on December 20th 2017. He picked the Irish over USC, UCLA, Oklahoma among many others.
- He was a consensus 4 star recruit with many recruiting services having Lamb in their top 100.
- Jack Lamb will be one true freshman who gets time on the field this year. He already has the size and strength to play on special teams. Starting college early and getting reps in spring ball can only help.

Country, Condiment, Or Canon
Identifying the player as either a country, condiment, or member of the Star Wars Canon.
If you do a quick google search of “newest countries” you will stumble across the great country of East Timor. Jack Lamb is new to the Notre Dame football team. East Timor is new to the world as it’s own country. I think it is pretty easy to see the resemblance here.
Jack Lamb should not be counted on to make plays in crunch time moments this year. Notre Dame has some talented upperclassmen at linebacker that should be in the game during key moments. That is not to say Jack Lamb will not play. Because he will.
He is ready now to make an impact on special teams. He has been learning the defensive playbook since January. Jack Lamb is a talented football player that will one day be a major contributor to the Notre Dame defense. It just won’t be in 2018.
Best case scenario for Jack Lamb is that he plays special teams and gets his feet wet on defense during garbage time or lesser opponents. I would be shocked if Lamb is held out to redshirt. As a true freshman, he is already too good to leave off the field entirely.
