BREAKING | Marshall OL Transfer Cain Madden to Notre Dame

June 4, 2021

The 2021 Notre Dame football team got deeper on Friday as Marshall graduate transfer offensive lineman Cain Madden has committed to the Fighting Irish. 

Madden announced on May 19th he was entering the Transfer Portal and quickly became one of the nation's most coveted transfers. 

The former Marshall walk-on took an official visit to Florida State before arriving at Notre Dame on Thursday. 

The 6-foot-3, 313-pounder was named an AP second-team All-American in nine games last season. 

PFF graded Madden out as one of the offensive linemen in the country in 2020 with a 92.5 overall grade. Madden's run blocking is his strength as PFF gave him a grade of 93.0, but his pass blocking wasn't bad as he didn't allow a sack or quarterback hit in 2020. 

It’s a big addition for Notre Dame as it gives Jeff Quinn more flexibility on the interior of the offensive line as Madden joins a young cast of players in Rocco Spindler, Andrew Kristofic, Quinn Carroll and others.
