I see you Justin Walters

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish took the practice field for their second session of the spring period on Tuesday. There is no media allowed for any practice this spring, but Notre Dame has provided us with photos and video to pass along to our readers. The videos aren’t the normal type of hype footage we normally see from Notre Dame on their social accounts — as there is a lot more meat on this 3 minute bone.

Some things that stood out to me...

The “starting” offensive line right now from left to right is; LT Tosh Baker, LG Dillan Gibbons, C Zeke Correll, RG John Dirksen, and RT Josh Lugg. This will look entirely different come fall camp, but this is what we have right now.

We saw, again, Andrew Kristofic as the 2nd string center and walk-on Quinn Murphy as the third string center.

Jack Coan was picked off by TaRiq Bracy on a Jordan Johnson target. Bracy had excellent coverage, but Johnson didn’t appear as if he battled for the ball at all.

Drew Pyne showed fantastic touch on an over the top seam ball to Lawrence Keys who had a step on safety D.J. Brown.

Something to drool over... Jack Coan tossed a deep bomb to Braden Lenzy — that just came down inside the endzone for a touchdown. Clarence Lewis was covering Lenzy, and was beat pretty badly.

Freshman Justin Walters (#20 white) stood out at safety in this clip with a really nice pass break up and an interception. He physically looks ready to go, and I’m excited to see him develop.

Quite a bit of passing to the running backs on the edge. Chris Tyree looked very quick on one play in particular. C’Bo Flemister had himself a nice long run that ended in the endzone.

Larry Keys looked really involved in the clip. Not only was he targeted several times in the passing game, but we saw that quick end around as well.

I have no other blanket statements to make. Things look good, but 3 minutes of footage is still just 3 minutes of footage.

Notre Dame will hold its Pro Day on Wednesday, and practice number three will be on Thursday in the morning.
