Michael Love was able to talk to Irish Sports Daily’s Christian McCollum about his experience at Irish Invasion at Notre Dame on Saturday night.

“It went very well,” said Love, the younger brother of Notre Dame corner Julian Love. “It was fun. I learned a lot of new things. I learned different mechanics of routes and different footwork.” 

Love is an athlete who can play multiple positions at the next level. Just like his older brother did, Love plays many positions for Nazareth Academy, but worked primarily at wide receiver at Invasion. Love thinks he was able to show a lot to the coaching staff through his strong camp performance.

“I think I was able to show my speed, my quickness and my route running,” stated Love. 

Love was able to give Irish Sports Daily an update on his current size, along with his current fastest 40 time.

“I am about 5-8, 165 pounds,” explained Love. “My faster 40 time was 4.56.” 

Throughout the camp, Love was able to work with new Irish assistant DelVaughn Alexander and shared his initial impressions of him as a coach.

“He is a very good coach,” stated Love. “He taught me a lot of things that showed me he cared a lot. I think he is a very good coach.” 

Alexander was able to give Love some feedback while he was still on campus.

“He liked me,” said Love. “He said he would be in touch. He liked my speed.” 

With his brother on the current Notre Dame roster, Love has been to campus a lot. He was able to offer some insight on what he likes about Notre Dame.

“The tradition obviously,” stated Love. “Just the campus, the coaches and the tours they get you on.” 

Michael was also able to share some of the insight he gets from his older brother.

“He says it’s awesome,” explained Michael. “It is a close-knit family. Everyone likes each other. Everyone knows each other. Like, a very family-like environment.” 

Michael Love knows there is a unique opportunity for him to play with his brother if he ends up at Notre Dame and he was able to share his thoughts.

“It would be awesome,” exclaimed Love. “It would be very competitive, but it would be awesome.” 

Michael Love is looking to return for a couple games in the fall, but for now he is going to continue his camp circuit in order to get more exposure and recognition.
