The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. 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 2019 season.
Cam Hart, WR
Cam Hart adds to the mix of young talent joining the Fighting Irish following their 12-0 regular season in 2018-19. Hart distinguished himself as a standout wide receiver at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Maryland. During his high school career, he brought his versatility to the forefront. A two-way powerhouse, Hart attracted the eyes of names such as Boston College, Georgia Tech, Michigan State and more.
He has the aggression the Irish need; he’s not afraid to get after it. Notable for his agility, Hart racked up an impressive SPARQ score of 107 at the Opening Regional.
Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift, or Chicago
I’m going with a Bon Jovi track with this one. Hart’s song is “Runaway.” He has proven himself a consistent follower of the #RTDB philosophy.
Hey, Dog, Hey!
This puppy from the Irish freshman litter is a Great Dane. He shies away from the spotlight; he won’t be going after much attention right after he puts on that gold helmet. Hart has made it clear he wants to blend in as he joins the team. He lets his physicality do the talking. Much like a Great Dane this wide receiver may seem more subdued in personality, but he can get aggressive when he needs to. His middle-of-the-road rankings may say one thing; he comes in at 750 in the 247 Sports Composite. However, he has proven his tenacity and should become more and more impressive as he grows.

Hart values the history and legacy of the gold and blue, and that will drive his characteristic reactivity and aggression as he moves into his freshman season. He told rivals.com, “It’s all about fit and I feel like Notre Dame is like my school but bigger. It’s all about tradition and that’s what I like.” Hart knows he belongs, and has the distinct ability to control the ball from both sides. In 2019, Hart will begin the process of setting himself apart from other Irish wide receivers. He will definitely take his athleticism further as he joins the Irish on the field.
