No.21 Notre Dame is in the midst of preparing for their Friday afternoon showdown with South Carolina in the Tax Slayer Gator Bowl, however the Fighting Irish may be in the midst of preparing for beyond just this past Friday afternoon.

News broke Tuesday afternoon that Wake Forrest star quarterback Sam Hartman entered the transfer portal and reports indicate that Notre Dame could be his potential landing spot according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

Hartman set many records, program and conference, at Wake Forrest. He currently holds the record for most career touchdown passes in the ACC, totaling 110 touchdowns in five seasons. Hartman will also finish his career at Wake Forrest with a record of 27 wins and 18 losses.

Landing Hartman would be huge for Notre Dame heading into the 2023 season as they are currently in need of a QB following the transfer of Drew Pyne. Pyne left Notre Dame for Arizona State.

Wake Forrest is scheduled to play at Notre Dame on October 28th next season.
