2018 WR Kamryn Babb Looking to Return to Notre Dame

July 4, 2017

2018 Christian Brothers (Mo.) receiver Kamryn Babb put on a show at The Opening and ended it with two touchdown catches in the 7-on-7 championship game. The four-star prospect also embraced the learning opportunities throughout the week from some of football’s finest.

“It’s been amazing competing against some of the best athletes in the world and getting advice from Jerry Rice,” Babb told Irish Sports Daily. “Learning from the pros has given me a lot to take out of here.”

At the end of May, the 6-foot-1, 197-pounder cut his list down to nine schools, Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, and USC.

Babb isn’t in a hurry to make a decision and will make sure it’s an educated one.  

“I have my Top 9 and trying to take my time and evaluate all my schools,” stated Babb. “I am talking to mentors and family to find out what’s right for my family and me. I still have plenty of time.”

Notre Dame received a spring visit from Babb, and the Irish are in the race to land the speedy receiver. The Buckeyes are thought to be the leader at this stage, but Notre Dame impressed the St. Louis native.

“They have a great football team, but one thing that has caught my eye is their academics and what they can give me off the field,” explained Babb. “Seeing their history and how student-athletes do is something I have to look at because it’s always bigger than football.”

The Irish are in line for an official visit from Babb this fall, but no date has been locked in just yet.

“I do plan on it,” Babb said of a return trip to Notre Dame. “I do not know when but I am trying to figure it out with family. It’s my last actual summer, so I am just figuring it out.”

Babb is also big on relationships and isn’t limiting himself to speaking to just one coach from a program.  

“I talk to a lot of people,” Babb said. “I am creating relationships with all the coaches and not just one or two. I’m building relationships as time goes on and getting used to them.”

When it comes to his actual decision, Babb hasn’t set a date and hasn't really looked that far ahead.
“I don’t know if it’s going to be during the summer or football season or after,” said Babb. “I am just taking my time.

“It’s bigger than football, so life after football. You have to be comfortable at your school and that’s a big thing.”
