The Chicago Tribune's Teddy Greenstein reports that Notre Dame and Wisconsin are discussing a series to be played at Soldier Field.

Per Greenstein, this is still in the planning stages and there is not expected to be an announcement on the series in the immediate future. Notre Dame and Wisconsin last played in 1964. The Irish have already had a number of games at Soldier Field and hold a 10-0-2 record in those contests.

The mother of Notre Dame senior DT Daniel Cage said that her son plans on taking a medical redshirt in 2017 due to his history of concussions.

Cage (6'0/325) continues to feel headaches from a concussion suffered in November, his third such head injury during his time at Notre Dame. He also underwent offseason knee surgery. Cage's sidelining for the coming season leaves HC Brian Kelly incredibly thin when it comes to experienced defensive tackles outside of Jerry Tillery, Jonathan Bonner and Elijah Taylor (who underwent foot surgery in the spring).

Uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Kalon Gervin received an offer from Alabama over the weekend.

Normally, one offer doesn't move the needle much, but in this case, Gervin immediately bumped the Tide into his list of finalists, where they join Louisville, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon and Virginia Tech. The Hokies will be receiving a visit from the 5-foot-11, 175-pounder this coming weekend. While Scout.com's No. 283 overall prospect has yet to set a specific date to announce his pledge, he could make his decision before the end of July.

Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick said that he would be in favor of playing Alabama in the future.

"Alabama is one of those opponents we would love to play. I hope we do get that done," Swarbrick said. He also indicated that he would like to see the Irish take on Auburn at some point down the road. Notre Dame last played Alabama in the 2013 BCS National Championship Game. That did not pan out so well for them -- they ended up losing by a 42-14 final score. Revenge is a dish best served with patience?

Notre Dame junior TE Alize Mack was named to the 2017 John Mackey Award Watch List.

Mack (6'5/240) was forced to sit out the 2016 season due to academic concerns, but was cleared to return to work in January. Prior to all that unpleasantness which cost him his sophomore year, Mack -- a four-star recruit for the 2015 cycle -- caught 13 passes for 190 yards as a true freshman. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him as the No. 4 fantasy tight end in college football.

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren believes that Notre Dame four-star 2018 verbal S commit Derrik Allen is talented enough to see the field as a freshman.

"Allen would come into a secondary that could use help, especially as a playmaking safety," VanHaaren writes, later adding that the 6-foot, 175-pounder "should have the opportunity to step on the field very early on in his career." VanHaaren colleague Gerry Hamilton would like to see Allen pack on a bit more playing weight and focus in on his work against the run as he enters his senior season at Lassiter High School (Georgia). The Worldwide Leader ranks him as the No. 73 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

Notre Dame and Arkansas have scheduled a home-and-home series.

Notre Dame will host Arkansas on September 12, 2020. Arkansas won't be returning the favor for a while after that, as the Irish will be making the trek to Fayetteville on October 4, 2025. "It’s remarkable to think our historic programs have never met, but we are excited that this will change in the near future as we add the University of Notre Dame to our football schedules in 2020 and 2025," said Arkansas AD Jeff Long.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown ranked Notre Dame junior RB Josh Adams as the No. 36 running back in college football.

"In a season filled with frustration for Notre Dame, Adams at least had some positive moments in his sophomore season," Brown writes, specifically pointing to his 180-yard effort against USC. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, Adams rushed for 933 yards (5.9 YPC) and five touchdowns while catching 21 passes for 193 yards and two additional scores. Adams will be joined by Dexter Williams and C.J. Holmes as the main cogs in the Irish's backfield for the coming campaign.

Scout.com's Brian Dohn passes along that there are "constant rumblings" that Notre Dame four-star 2018 verbal DT commit Jayson Ademilola is considering visiting other programs.

Dohn is interested to see how Ademilola plays matters at The Opening in Beaverton, Oregon, this coming weekend, writing, "Will recruits committed to other schools make a huge impression and sway him to visit their schools? Or will Ademilola's big personality get some other prospects to visit Notre Dame?" The 6-foot-3, 290-pounder ranks as Scout.com's No. 127 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. Dohn notes that Ademilola "uses power, speed, a swim, a club and he also a spin as he works tirelessly throughout a game."

Uncommitted four-star 2018 CB Kalon Gervin's top-five consists of Louisville, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon and Virginia Tech.

Gervin -- a former Notre Dame pledge -- is fresh off a visit to Oregon which he made this past weekend. He is planning visits to both Oklahoma and Virginia Tech for later this summer. The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder ranks as Rivals' No. 104 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. He indicated that he will make his commitment at a yet-to-be-determined date in July.

Rivals passes along that prior to suffering a minor injury at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge, Notre Dame four-star 2018 verbal TE commit George Takacs was "hit-and-miss."

Looks like it was something of an eventful camp for Takacs on the whole. That aside, the 6-foot-6, 236-pounder remains one of the top tight end prospects in the 2018 class, with ESPN's Craig Haubert noting that he has the ability to both work as an offensive weapon and a "strong contributor as an in-line blocker." The Worldwide Leader ranks him as the No. 176 overall prospect for the cycle.

Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 TE George Takacs.

"He is a big target with good hands and the ability to adjust and make catches outside his frame," writes ESPN's Craig Haubert, "and he has the physical stature and the strength to develop into a strong contributor as an in-line blocker." The analyst compares the 6-foot-6, 236-pounder to Stanford TE Dalton Schultz due to similarly impressive athletic measureables. On the ESPN 300, Takacs lands at No. 176 overall.

Notre Dame senior G Colin McGovern will not be transferring to Virginia as previously planned.

Details here are scarce at this juncture, but on Friday, Cavaliers HC Bronco Mendenhall said that McGovern will not be enrolling at the university. The 6-foot-4, 313-pounder had initially announced his transfer intentions near the end of January. McGovern's future plans are not yet known. He saw eight starts with the Irish in 2016.

Navy sophomore S Alohi Gilman transferred to Notre Dame.

"He plays the style of safety we want in this program. Alohi's a run-and-hit safety that fits perfectly in the Mike Elko defense," said Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly in a statement. Gilman recorded a hearty 76 tackles, five pass breakups and two fumble recoveries as a true freshman in 2016, numbers which earned him All-AAC honorable mention. Despite this house-on-fire start to his career, the 6-foot, 195-pounder just wasn't feeling the fire to be a Naval officer, hence his decision to transfer. Due to NCAA regulations, he will have to sit out the 2017 season. He will have three seasons of eligibility remaining starting in 2018.
