Andrew Trumbetti

Freshman Season (2014) – After enrolling early out of high school, Andrew Trumbetti made his mark early on in his freshman campaign.  At one point in fall camp Trumbetti rose to the top of the depth chart at defensive end, but it wasn’t until the final game of the 2014 season, the Music City Bowl, that Trumbetti was in the starting lineup for one of Notre Dame’s contests.

Even though he only started just a single game, Trumbetti showed his promise throughout his freshman season.  Trumbetti collected 5.5 tackles for loss including the first and only sack of his rookie season against Stanford.  Still, his 5.5 tackles for loss were good enough for 6th on the team.

Trumbetti’s rise throughout the 2014 season has the New Jersey native primed for a prominent role for the Notre Dame defense in 2015 with a permanent role place in the starting lineup within his grasp.

Recruiting – Andrew Trumbetti was one of the earliest commitments for the Notre Dame class of 2014 out of Demarest, New Jersey.  Despite steady interest from elite programs throughout the country, Trumbetti held firm in his commitment to Notre Dame throughout the process.  As a consensus 4-star recruit, Trumbetti was selected for the Under Armour All-American Bowl where he showed off the skills that earned him those 4 stars.
