BREAKING: Notre Dame Lands ASU WR Grad Transfer Cam Smith

June 5, 2017

Notre Dame will add a player to the 2017 roster as grad transfer Cam Smith enters the Irish program from Arizona State.

The 6-foot, 203-pounder recorded 61 catches for 917 yards and six scores over his career for the Sun Devils. In 2014, Smith had 41 receptions for 596  yard and six touchdowns before suffering a knee injury.

Smith missed the 2015 season recovering from knee surgery, and Arizona State clearly missed his explosive playmaking ability.

“He had more explosive plays than anybody on our offense,” head coach Todd Graham stated in an article by “That’s the big thing. His ability to have one-play touchdowns. He had more explosive plays than (NFL third-round draft pick) Jaelen (Strong). That’s something we missed tremendously.”

Smith comes from Coppell High School (Texas), which should be a familiar high school program for Notre Dame fans as former running back Cam McDaniel is also an alum.

It’s also worth noting Notre Dame receiver coach Del Alexander and offensive coordinator Chip Long had a history with Smith when all three were at Arizona State. The competition at receiver should be exactly what the Irish need as Smith joins fellow grad transfer Freddy Canteen and freshmen Michael Young and Jafar Armstrong as new faces on the 2017 roster.
