Notre Dame class of 2018 quarterback, Brandon Wimbush.  Originally recruited to Notre Dame out of St. Peter’s Prep in New Jersey after earning Under Armour All-American honors.

Freshman Season (2015): Forced into action as Notre Dame’s backup quarterback due to the injury to Malik Zaire and the pre-season transfer of Everett Golson.  From week two on, Wimbush served as the primary backup quarterback for the Irish.   Wimbush only saw action in two contests but showed his immense talent with a 58 yard touchdown run in mop up duty versus UMass.  He only attempted five passes on the season completing three for 17 yards.  Ended the season with 96 yards rushing and the lone touchdown.

Sophomore Season (2016): Brandon Wimbush redshirted in 2016 to preserve an additional year of eligibility.  Despite playing as a true freshman in 2015, Wimbush was intentionally redshirted by the Notre Dame coaching staff to “recoop” the year he lost in 2015 when forced into action.  He will enter the 2017 season as Notre Dame’s starting quarterback.
