The Notre Dame football program is ready to kick off fall practice this Friday, and here, we look at three things to keep an eye on.

The time has finally come for the Notre Dame football team to kick off their practices heading into their season opener against Ohio State. For the Irish, this is going to be an exciting season, as they have a new head coach at the helm and first-round talent on both sides of the ball.

As they get ready to start fall practices later this week, here are some things you may want to monitor.

The Secondary

Last season, the Notre Dame football team had the gold standard on their roster at the safety position, as Kyle Hamilton was the best in the country. In 2022, they will have to replace him but will do so with another All-American, as Brandon Joseph comes to South Bend via Northwestern.

That spot is locked in stone, as are the two outside cornerback roles, with Cam Hart and Clarence Lewis returning as starters. From there, it is going to be outstanding competition to see who rounds out the starting lineup, and who can inch their way up the depth chart to play a major role in 2022.
