3 Things We've Learned About Notre Dame Football In Fall Camp

We're under two weeks away from the start of the 2015 college football season, which means it's time to assess the goings-on with the Notre Dame football team and get a sense of where the program is headed once fall camp officially comes to a close. Here's 3 Things We've Learned About Notre Dame Football In Fall Camp.

Malik Zaire is coming along

It's Zaire's team now with Golson off to FSU, but a spotty spring performance has some fans and pundits worried about whether or not he's ready to take the load in South Bend.. He's a fantastic dual-threat weapon at his best, but he sometimes rushes his decision-making and befuddles the coaching staff by failing to efficiently and patiently cycle through his progressions. If he can continue to get that tightened up, the Irish should be in very good shape heading into Week 1.

Nic Weishar is making a move

Notre Dame wasn't sure what kind of impact freshman tight end Nic Weishar would have this year, but according to NBC's Keith Arnold, the skill he's shown in fall camp has the coaches thinking he could be a breakout player for them.

"He’s lit up fall camp and he is also taking advantage of nagging injuries that have slowed down Alizé Jones and Durham Smythe. It sounds like he’s a ball hawk and it also sounds like he’s developed quite a rapport with Malik Zaire. So keep an eye on Weishar."

Justin Yoon looks ready

In his last year with Notre Dame, place kicker Kyle Brindza has a frustrating, ineffective go-around -- missing ten of his 24 field goal attempts, including two that may have cost the Irish key victories. The onus is now on freshman Justin Yoon to salvage the kicking game, getting his reps in camp in hopes of translating his raw talent into production come the regular season. He's produced so far and the coaching staff is happy - now he just has to do it in the regular season.
