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.
#13 Lawrence Keys III
Lawrence Keys III will enter 2018 looking to push for playing time. This could be on special teams or at wide receiver. He is a 5’10 and 160 pound football player. The lack of size obviously will limit how Notre Dame uses him.
Keys is from New Orleans, Louisiana. It is the second WR on roster from the great state of Louisiana, as sophomore Michael Young is also from there. Notre Dame has proven they can go into the south and bring back some talented recruits.
Three Things To Know About Lawrence Keys III:
- He was expected to play college football at LSU. As a Louisiana native, everyone thought he would go to the hometown school. Keys shocked many people by committing to Notre Dame.
- You could see him playing special teams. Keys seems to be a perfect fit as a kick returner with his speed and quickness.
- He is also a candidate for the new four game redshirt. A year of gaining strength and learning the receiver position is not out of the question.

I looked up where there are high numbers in the cheetah population. That would end up being Botswana. Cheetahs are known for their speed and quickness. Sound familiar? That is exactly what Lawrence Keys III is known for on the football field. Speed and quickness for days.
Lawrence Keys III lacks the size that would make him a candidate to play a lot as a freshman. I think he brings an element to the game that cannot be kept off the field for long. Notre Dame will find a way to use him this year. I would not expect that to be in the first few games of the season, but as we get closer to November, look for Keys to get some more game action
