According to a report on Blue and Gold Illustrated, Notre Dame sophomore tight end/fullback Davis Sherwood has earned a scholaship after placing Avery Davis on the medical hardship list.

As a freshman last year, Sherwood played in the fifth most games of all Notre Dame freshmen on the roster. He became a special teams standout, and has continued to make that mark throughout the spring and in fall camp.
In the spring, both Sherwood and Barrett Liebentritt were both listed as TE/FB on the Irish roster. The current roster has both only listed as tight ends while the only fullback is freshman Justin Fisher from Mishawaka.
But I mean... if you’re listed just once as a fullback on a college roster, are you ever anything else? The answer is NO, not really. Besides being a FULLBACK Davis Sherwood has a last name first name — and my heart.
Congratulations to Sherwood, and I look forward to a 31 trap play while up 47-0 on Marshall.
