The possibility of Hartman transferring to Notre Dame for his final year of eligibility became public right before Christmas — and what a (late) Christmas present this is for the Irish. Hartman holds the ACC record for career touchdown passes, and was the top-rated quarterback in the transfer portal this cycle.
While the game of words and coachspeak may still be in play over the next few months — Sam Hartman is going to be the starting quarterback for Notre Dame in 2023. Ever since the news started to leak about Hartman leaning toward the Irish as a landing spot, one pundit after another has stated that his move South Bend instantly makes Notre Dame a playoff contender in 2023.
He’s pretty good.
In 48 games with Wake Forest, Hartman is a 59% passer with 12,967 yards, 110 touchdowns, and 41 interceptions.
Sam will enroll this month and be ready to practice during the spring football period.
More to come on OFD.
