Nebraska Football: Projecting the impression of RB Markese Stepp
Michael Mayer is coming into his sophomore season with Notre Dame soccer and he’s about to be this system’s next great tight end.
If there’s one factor Notre Dame is thought for, it must be producing elite tight ends.
Not solely has Brian Kelly produced some elite tight ends, but it surely goes again even earlier than him. Right now within the NFL, although, are guys like Cole Kmet, Alize Mack, Tyler Eifert, Durham Smythe and Kyle Rudolph. That’s 5 tight ends and some of them have had critical impacts within the league whereas a few others have solely been within the NFL for a few seasons and will be stars.
And now there’s one other star coming by means of this system and he might even end up as one of the best of the bunch listed above: Michael Mayer.
The 6-foot-4, 232-pound tight end from Kentucky was a five-star prospect within the 2020 recruiting class and he was ranked No. 32 in response to the composite. He was the second-best tight end in his class and confirmed why he was so highly-regarded as a recruit with a 450-receiving yard freshman 12 months. He additionally had 42 catches and two touchdowns.
It’s fairly clear that he’s the next elite tight end to come back by means of this system and Notre Dame nonetheless will get to squeeze two extra years out of him.
Mayer seems to be the half and has even earned the nickname “Baby Gronk” from these inside this system and it’s onerous to argue that he doesn’t deserve it. He is constructed like a truck, runs great routes, has comfortable, sturdy fingers and it looks like the one approach to convey him down is by taking out his legs.
This dude is the true deal and he’s nonetheless comparatively unknown across the nation.
I wouldn’t be shocked if he was a top-three tight end in faculty soccer by the end of the 2021 season and I might be much less shocked if he was talked about because the 2023 NFL Draft’s best tight end prospect.
Notre Dame is an absolute tight end manufacturing facility.
