 Kevin Austin Jr., Notre Dame, Player News

  It's hard to fathom that a player with six career catches for 108 yards in three years on the Notre Dame campus could be so pivotal as to whether Notre Dame ends up reloading or mildly rebuilding in 2021. Until you watch him practice at 100 percent. The return to 100 percent health should happen before the Irish open camp in August. A turbulent freshman year, followed by a sophomore-year suspension and a twice-broken foot as a junior in 2020 hasn't diminished what the 6-2, 215-pound senior could do for an Irish offense that needed his explosiveness in the two games it lost last season.

They'll need fellow seniors Braden Lenzy and Lawrence Keys III to be healthy and improved as well, and grad senior Avery Davis a formidable complement to Austin and sophomore tight end Michael Mayer. For all the consternation over former five-star prospect Jordan Johnson's decision to find a trap door out of Notre Dame, a healthy Kevin Austin Jr. - who's grown from his turbulence, not succumbed to it - has a much brighter present and more promising future. - South Bend Tribune

  Austin, who missed the first two games of the season recovering from a broken bone in his left foot suffered on July 29, hasn't played in a game since the 2018 College Football Playoff semifinal loss to Clemson and his last reception came against Navy in late October of that year. Austin was suspended all of last season, so the last time he was in anything close to game action was last year's Blue-Gold Game. Kelly said Austin will likely be limited to 15-20 plays on Saturday if all goes well. But what does Kelly expect to see from Austin when fully unleashed? "Based upon what we've seen prior - explosive, rangy, outstanding ball skills and a guy that can open up the game," Kelly said. "He can take the top off of coverages. He can catch it and go the distance, and he can win one-on-one matchups. A guy that would be nice to get on the field for us." - South Bend Tribune

  A return to game action for Notre Dame wide receiver Kevin Austin Jr. may be delayed. On Monday, the Irish football program announced Austin, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound junior, suffered a fractured bone in his left foot last Wednesday. The injury required surgery Monday to repair the fifth metatarsal, the longest bone in the smallest toe. The release from Notre Dame said Austin is expected to return to action this fall, but it did not specify a timetable for his recovery. With that limited information and no date announced for Notre Dame's season opener, it's unclear how many games Austin could miss. - South Bend Tribune

  As expected, Notre Dame's 2020 football season opener with Navy is getting a site change. The move from Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, to Navy's Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., also comes with a date change. The 94th meeting between the two schools will "likely" be played over the Labor Day holiday either Sept. 5 or Sept. 6, which had been a built-in bye weekend for both teams. ND's home opener with Arkansas is set for Sept. 12. The move, announced Tuesday morning, follows extensive consultation with the Irish government, medical authorities and the administrative staffs at the Naval Academy and Notre Dame over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, per a press release. The game will be televised nationally by either ESPN or ABC and will be the first ever of the 94 games in the series to be played on Navy's campus just outside Washington D.C. Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium has a seating capacity of 34,000. - Indianapolis Star/News

  John Garrish heard what some of Notre Dame's draft prospects were saying about Kevin Austin Jr. at the NFL Scouting Combine. All he could do was nod in agreement. "Kevin Austin is going to be a star," said wide receiver Chase Claypool. "I've been saying it all along. He's a super good player." Garrish, who met Austin as a sophomore at Coconut Creek (Fla.) North Broward Prep, felt just as strongly about Austin's future back then. Following a freshman year at Davie (Fla.) Western, Austin transferred to North Broward Prep, where Garrish led the strength and conditioning program for all sports in addition to his work as the head coach for the track and field team.

Not long after Garrish was introduced to Austin, he challenged the young player to touch the ceiling in the weight room. Garrish isn't sure how high the ceiling was. He estimated it was closer to 11 feet than 10. What Garrish does know is he's never seen anyone else touch it. "It wasn't really a testament to what we were doing training-wise," Garrish said. "It was just a testament to what he had athletically and the work he put in before." - South Bend Tribune
