Jack Lamb, a former Notre Dame Fighting Irish linebacker, announced today that he will use a graduate transfer to play football for the Colorado Buffaloes.
Excited to announce that I will be continuing my football career and pursuing a master’s degree at the University of Colorado Boulder! #GoBuffs pic.twitter.com/4GTXvpyv1h— Jack Lamb (@JackLamb_) February 4, 2021
Lamb was a part of the 2018 recruiting class for the Irish as was the #99 ranked prospect in the nation. He suffered an injury during his senior year of high school that hindered his immediate impact in South Bend and he redshirted his freshman year. In two year at Notre Dame, Lamb played in 11 games and had 20 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery. His 2020 season was cut short once again because of an injury.
In an article from 247’s Greg Biggins, Lamb stated:
“They [Colorado] made me a priority right away. I want to go somewhere that I was valued and they made me feel that way every time we talked. On top of that, Colorado is a program I feel is on the rise so I’m really excited about the decision.”
Jack will leave Notre Dame with his degree in hand and will be immediately eligible. He will also have 3 full years of eligibility available to him, so he will have ample time to mack an impact in the PAC-12.
