Without question one of the biggest topics of conversation about “next year” for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish revolves around the numbers at wide receiver in South Bend. National Signing Day kind of broke a few people, and those people made more people, and now we have a huge fanbase looking for answers.

While we don’t offer definitive answers for Notre Dame’s numbers deficit at WR in 2022, Jude put together a fairly comprehensive list of options to take a look at for transfer season. The Irish can’t bring in just anyone due to admission standards for undergrad transfers, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a handful of possible players out there.

To be honest, I’m not sure we are going to hear a whole lot about the focused target group for at least a couple of weeks. Between the bowl game, and the next signing day in February — there’s a lot going on with the program. Of course, if things do start to happen that have a little more meat on the bone, we’ll be sure to talk about it.
