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.
#85 George Takacs, TE
Standing at 6’6” with a 255 pound build, Takacs has the ideal measurements for a tight end. Takacs was a four star recruit coming out of Naples, Florida’s Gulf Coast High School. He enrolled early in 2018, but had a leg injury early into his time on campus. Takacs redshirted last season partially due, presumably, to the sheer amount of depth that the Irish have at the tight end position. He still has four years of college eligibility remaining.
Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift or Chicago
Takacs is shaking off a meniscus tear from last season.
Hey, Dog, HEY!
He’ll have a big job to do in a couple of years. That’s why Takacs reminds me of a service dog in training.
Realistically, we might not see much of Takacs this season. Special teams is a possibility, I suppose. Cole Kmet and Brock Wright are just far more likely, as upperclassmen with a lot of the same physical characteristics, to get those first team snaps at tight end. Becoming a significant piece of the offense might have to wait until 2020 or possibly even later.
