For his final seven games for Notre Dame last year tight end Tyler Eifert secured a newcomer-of-the-year award.
This spring Eifert's dramatic improvement has talent spotter agog.
"It’s really exciting watching Eifert right now," coordinator Charley Molnar told the Journal Gazette. "He looks like an All-American in the making, he really does."
Eifert himself wants to put the breaks on too much breathless speculation this early in his career though.
"It’s spring, and I got a lot of work to do," Eifert told the Journal Gazette. "It doesn’t mean anything unless it carries over into the season."
This time last year Eifert was an unknown when coach Brian Kelly ran his first spring camp.
After Kyle Rudolph’s season concluded abruptly due to injury, Eifert quickly became Notre Dame’s top tight end.
