2024 CB Commit Karson Hobbs Excited For Notre Dame Return

January 10, 2023

Karson Hobbs‍ is headed home again.

The 2024 Notre Dame cornerback commit will be making the trip from Ohio to South Bend for the Irish’s Junior Day event this Saturday.

“I think it’ll be a great time, getting to spend quality time with my coaches and getting a chance to get close and meet the staff,” the Archbishop Moeller High School standout says.

“I’m just trying to build that relationship and truly feel like I’m around my family and around the people that I chose to be around.”

Hobbs is also looking forward to getting around his future teammates and classmates, including fellow 2024 commits CJ Carr, Cam Williams, Jack Larsen and Owen Wafle.

Hobbs made the trip from Cincinnati to South Bend a couple times this fall before announcing his verbal commitment to the Irish in November.

He has a good feel for everything Notre Dame has to offer, so now, it’s more about learning the little things.

“Really just about how rooming as a freshman goes,” he says. “Academics, I’m pretty certain on what I’m getting my self into and I’m ready.”

Hobbs grew up a huge Notre Dame fan and traveled with his father to Jacksonville last month to see the Irish defeat South Carolina in the Gator Bowl.

“One of the best games I’ve ever been to,” he says. “The fans are really worldwide, it was really just great to see.”

He was fired up to watch Notre Dame for the first time as a commit, knowing that will be him soon.

“One of the best feelings of my life,” he says. “Ever since I was a kid, I waited for this moment and being able to go play for Notre Dame.

“Seeing all those good faces out there and all my coaches coaching everybody up, knowing I will be one of the big guys I always wanted to be one day and playing in front of 90,000 people, that’s exciting.”
