2023 Notre Dame football season preview. Everything you need to know heading into fall camp
Notre Dame football has a devoted matchmaker in receivers coach Chansi Stuckey
Has a well-built and developing frame, with muscular arms, a very tight abdomen and hips, split high with tapered muscles in the lower body...Built for speed, but has above average power for his physique...Dangerous open-field runner with the valid speed to threaten the deep secondary...Smooth open-field runner with the explosive acceleration off the line to avoid the jam...Has that sudden burst needed to eat up the defensive back's cushion...Very tough competitor who plays with nice effort and will not hesitate to combat for the jump balls...Willing to cross over the middle and give up his body in order to get to the ball...Has the plant-and-drive agility crispness to get in and out of his cuts...Has no problems digesting a complicated playbook and is very alert to coverages and boundaries...Emotional leader who takes pride in his mentoring of the team's younger players...Spends countless hours in the film room and after practices preparing for his upcoming opponent...Runs with a short, pitter-patter style that lets him run up on a lethargic cornerback in an instant...If he gets a clean release off the snap, his explosion will get him into his route progression in an instant...Shows very sharp change of direction agility coming out of his breaks and uses his size well to fight off the jam...Does a good job of dropping his weight and sinking his hips to maintain acceleration in route progression...Has that second gear needed to consistently separate after the catch...Shows no concern for his body and knows how to reach and extend for the ball at its highest point...Runs nice short-area routes, doing a good job in attempts to uncover...His natural hands come into play with his over-the-shoulder grabs and on bubble screens...Has very good deep ball skills, maintaining eye contact on the ball in flight...Has the body flexibility to get low for the shoestring catches (especially on screens) and does a great job timing his leaps for the jump ball...Runs good downfield routes and looks very comfortable attacking the deep zone...Excellent cut blocker who keeps his shoulders square and sinks his hips to attack the second level defenders' lower body...Has a quick kick slide and uses his hand placement properly when blocking for the ground game...Has valid arm strength for the option pass and with roster consideration, could effectively be an emergency quarterback...Demonstrates very good arm-over action to escape the press...His short stride lets him explode cleanly out of his breaks and is quick to gobble up the defender's cushion...Best on bubble screens, where he has the timing and elusive jump/skip moves to make the isolated tackler miss...Very effective at going low to scoop up the shoestring passes without having to break stride...Does a good job of breaking down in front of the defender in attempts to take his opponent down at the knees when cut blocking in the second level...His burst off the snap is evident when running slants, crossing routes and bubble screens, as he shows the shifty hip moves to change direction and elude...Runs at a good pad level, patiently following his blockers on reverses...Gets valid yardage after the catch and has the valid arm strength to execute the option pass.
DEION BRANCH-Seattle...Both players rely on the exceptional speed to gain an instant advantage over a lethargic defender. Stuckey runs with a short pitter-patter style that lets him get a clean release with excellent explosion. He has been slow to recover from his broken foot suffered in 2006, resulting in mediocre performances during postseason action, but could be a nice second-day draft find, as he ranked with the elite at this position before his injury. Doctors expect him to be fully recovered by 2007 training camp.
Has all the tools you look for in a playmaker, but needs to do it with more consistency (will throttle down at times when not involved in the play)...Will need to add more bulk to his frame to combat the physical cornerbacks at the next level, but he does not have much more room on his frame for that added weight without having to sacrifice some of his quickness...Has no flinch going over the middle, but sometimes eyes the defender too long, losing his concentration on the ball in flight...Despite his speed, he is not a valid returner, as he needs to show more patience waiting for his blocks to develop.
2004: Sat out the Utah State (10/16) and North Carolina State (10/30) games with a nagging left ankle injury that was later discovered to have a broken bone. 2005: Left the Champs Sports Bowl matchup vs. Colorado (12/27) with four minutes left in the first quarter and did not return after suffering a concussion. 2006: Sat out the Wake Forest (10/07), Temple (10/14) and Georgia Tech (10/21) games after he suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot during a non-contact drill on Oct. 3. He underwent surgery the following day and was supposed to miss five games, but returned to action vs. Virginia Tech (10/28).
