OFD is a place that helps you all get learned and wise knowledge about our beloved football team, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. We continue imparting that knowledge and wisdom so that you all can know more about the players on the team. Next up is a man on the O-Line and for now slated at Tackle, Aaron Banks.
#69 Aaron Banks
Mr. Banks is a rising sophomore with 4, full years of eligibiliy left. He is from Alameda, CA and also 6’5”, 320 pounds. This guy has some nice size to him. He hasn’t seen game action yet, but he is following some pretty big names, so his lack of playing time makes sense as of now.

Just take a look at those blocks in his highlight tape. They are amazing and on point. He is steak sauce, and he is of the highest quality. This is also in reference to a “How I Met Your Mother” episode.
It seems that Aaron is enjoying being on the squad and helping to play a role. With some bigger names ahead of him, he might need to work some more to get some playing time. However, I could see using his skill and power sooner rather than later to help the line. With the loss of two, top-10 picks in the NFL Draft, the O-Line is somewhat of a question mark for this season. Any and all help could be necessary this coming season. It might take a couple of seasons, but Aaron Banks could become a big name on the O-Line in due time.
