Team: Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Ht / Wt:  6'5' / 213

Latest News

Recent News's Greg Flammang passes along that Notre Dame sophomore WR Chase Claypool "flashed on a number of plays" during the team's spring game.
Per the One Foot Down blog over at SB Nation, Claypool remains a somewhat unpolished route runner. With a 6-foot-5, 213-pound frame, though, he doesn't necessarily have to be a technician to make his presence felt -- particularly in the red zone. This past season, he caught five passes for 81 yards. Notre Dame has a number of relatively unproven receiving options to sort through beyond Equanimeous St. Brown, with Claypool, Kevin Stepherson, C.J. Sanders, Miles Boykin and Corey Holmes among the options HC Brian Kelly will be considering for potential impact roles during August camp. May 22 - 4:58 PM

Notre Dame signed four-star WR Chase Claypool.

Claypool hails from Abbotsford, British Columbia, and already has the prototypical size coaches love to see from a potential impact receiver. The 6-foot-5, 213-pound wideout "explodes off the line with good surge, has quick feet, gets into routes and can reach top speed quickly given his size," according to the ESPN 300, where he ranks 159th. Oregon was pursuing him as a possible linebacker and while Notre Dame might convert him over from offense, the Irish just lost their two leading receivers (William Fuller, Chris Brown) to the draft. There could be early playing time for Claypool if things break right.
