This Guy Plays Notre Dame Football: #52 Bo Bauer

This freshman linebacker has just joined the team

Here at OFD, we run through the players of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish so that you all can get to know them better. Next up is a freshman, Bo Bauer.

#52 Bo Bauer

Bo comes to us from Harborcreek, PA and Cathedral Prep High School. He is slated to be working with the linebackers. He was a four-star recruit, and he was also offered by Michigan State and West Virginia.

3 Things to Know About Bo Bauer

  1. Bo’s real name is Matthew. We’ll stick with Bo for how boss it sounds and also for alliteration.
  2. He was the 280th best player in the nation, also the 12th best from Pennsylvania.
  3. We have already broken down how he was as a player from the piece on when he committed. We’re just so on top of the ball.

Country, Condiment, or Canon

Identifying the player as either a country, condiment, or member of the Star Wars Canon.

Russia. Bo is Russia because he is from a township of Erie, PA. Apparently, Erie has always had a strong Russian backround. Because of that and because of his huge presence he has had up the middle (Russia is a huge country), Bo is Russia.

2018 Forecast

I forsee Bo learning the ropes a bit here. He has many big names above him on the depth chart for linebacker positions. It will be a bit tough for him to jump immediately into a lot of playing time. However, I see him contributing well and hopefully getting in some real time reps to hone in that toughness up the middle on defense.
