Default Grad Transfer

Looks like ND is getting receiver, Ben Skowronek, from Northwestern.

Was a team captain in 2019. Also two time Academic All-Big Ten

Injured in 2019 but last three seasons, he averaged 3 to 4 catches a game for 40 to 50 yards a game.

Seems like a solid pickup to go along with some of the smaller burners we have. Receives are getting a bit thin losing claypool and finke and swapping cam hart to CB. 3 guys coming in with this freshman class but tough to expect too much from freshman. Auston will hopefully be back and I would assume he lenzy and keys would be the top 3? Has McKinley decided yet what hes going to do? I'm assuming KAR Jones and Wilkins havent quite caught on yet which would be why they bring a guy like this in.

Nice pick up. His bio looks very good. A Fort Wayne boy. Started all the games in 2017 and 2018. He had 45 receptions in 2017 for 644 yards (avg 14yards) and 45 receptions in 2018 for 562 yards(avg 12.5 yards). Was named a captain in 2019 but got hurt earlier in season.

A captain on that squad. Not an elite athlete. But nice size, leadership and a BK kinda guy. Need some veteran presence on that squad.

Has a Chance to help us at W with Chase Graduating. I look at this as kind of Kevin Austin/Johnson Insurance. If Austin and Johnson are outstanding then he might get fewer looks, but if they are not ready yet, you put him on one side, Lenzy on the other and you are still good to go.

jesus, he doesn't look it in that tweet featuring him in the Notre Dame uniform, but he's freakin huge. He's basically a fast TE

edit: forgot to mention, I looked up some of his TDs

I stand corrected, he seems to have one year left after playing 2016, 2017, 2018 and then only three games in 2019.

Anytime you can bring in an established college receiver with 110 receptions for 1,417 yards and eight touchdowns you do it as it will immediately help the young Irish receiving corps. Great get! At 6-5 he has Claypool-like catching ability as that catch at Iowa proves. And Iowa probably had the best secondary in the Big 10 this year.

This is a tremendous pickup for ND and brings much needed experienced depth to that WR room for 2020.
