2023 QB Colbey Lamberth Visiting Notre Dame This Weekend

September 14, 2021

Colbey Lamberth‍ came into this past weekend’s trip to Notre Dame with high expectations and the 2023 Tennessee quarterback wasn’t disappointed.

“It was really good,” the 6-foot-4, 205-pounder told Irish Sports Daily afterward.

“I liked the campus a lot. It was a great atmosphere for the game. The game was really good.”

One spot in particular on campus stood out.

“Touchdown Jesus was probably my favorite thing,” Lamberth said. “I really liked how everything to do with football was all really close together, so you didn't really have to walk too far to all the stuff.”

During the game, there was another spot - or section - that stood out.

“The student section,” the Dickson County High School standout said. “That's definitely the most crazy student section I've been around. They were really crazy.”

While the Irish struggled to put away Toledo until the end, Lamberth was still impressed with Notre Dame quarterback Jack Coan’s performance.

“I don't think they played their best, but I like the way they run their offense, letting their quarterbacks spin it a little bit, getting under center,” he said. “Jack played really good. I think my favorite thing was when his finger popped out and he popped it right back into place and went back in and threw the game-winning touchdown.”

Lamberth has early offers from Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky and UNC-Charlotte. He didn’t get the chance to speak with Irish offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Tommy Rees after the game, but hopes to soon.

“Coach Rees wasn't able to make it over,” he said. “All of the position coaches came over, but something came up and he wasn't able to make it there. He let someone know and they told us that he was sorry about that.”

Lamberth is hoping to return.

“For sure,” he said. “I really liked it. Hopefully I'll get back up there sometime just to talk to him.”

He’ll be busy on the road moving forward with expected stops at Tennessee, Ole Miss, Kentucky and Arkansas.

“There's a lot in these next few weeks.”
