Senior nose tackle Pat Kuntz is back in school and will be on the field for the Irish this fall according to the Chicago Tribune.
Notre Dame starting nose tackle Pat Kuntz is back at school after missing the spring semester for what he termed personal reasons.
Kuntz was enrolled Tuesday as summer school began and is expected to be enrolled for the start of the fall semester, said Brian Hardin, Notre Dame’s director of football media relations.
This is truly great news for the Irish defensive line. Depth along the defensive line this fall will still be extremely thin with Kuntz, but without him, the Irish would have been in some serious trouble.
Look for Kuntz to slide over to defensive end this fall after spending most of 2007 as the starting nose tackle. With a full spring as the #1 NT, sophomore Ian Williams should be ready to take over the starting role with the undersized Kuntz sliding over the defensive end spot vacated due to the graduation of Trevor Laws.
