Hit & Hustle | Xavier Watts Wins the Nagurski and Latest Portal Talk

December 5, 2023

Greg and Jamie are back talking about the latest news in the transfer portal, bowl game opt outs, and Notre Dame finding a new wide receivers coach.

They open the show by celebrating Xavier Watts winning the Bronko Nagurski Award and then give their thoughts about Mike Brown and why they feel good about his track record coaching receivers. They also hit on the transfer portal targets QB Riley Leonard, WR Josh Kelly, WR Kris Mitchell, and WR Beaux Collins as well as addressing why it’s so difficult to find a good offensive tackle in the portal.

They finish the show with a short discussion on the addition of nickel Jordan Clark from Arizona State and why he’s a good fit for Notre Dame’s defense.
