Friday marked the beginning of Notre Dame’s August workouts following a very fruitful recruiting period. The quarterback competition is the center of attention for the 2022 Fighting Irish.
After their practice, head coach Marcus Freeman stepped up to the microphone and answered queries about various topics. The quarterback competition between Tyler Buchner and Drew Pyne came up.
Freeman made some intriguing remarks about Buchner, but he remained reticent about who might be winning that conflict. The head coach of Notre Dame specifically mentioned how his development as a passer.
Both the offense and the defense displayed some strong points, as you saw. What about Tyler Buchner, though? He can run, as we all know. Since it’s always simple to take off and run, it’s really beneficial for him to advance in terms of passing, staying in the pocket, and making wise choices, Freeman told reporters.
Despite Buchner having missed the previous two practices before Friday’s session, Freeman confirmed that Pyne and Buchner were competing for the starting position.
Actually, Tyler and Drew are currently engaged in a two-quarterback competition. I believe they all made significant progress in the spring. You should be aware that Tyler missed the previous practice as well as the spring game. However, he completed 13 really productive practices, and I believed both of those players had excellent springs, Freeman told the press.
Accоrding tо 247Spоrts, Buchner jоined Nоtre Dame in 2021 as a fоur-star recruit. During his first seasоn, he made 10 appearances, tоtaling 634 yards and six tоuchdоwns. 46 carries resulted in 336 оf thоse yards, averaging 7.3 yards per carry.
In the upcоming seasоn, the Fighting Irish will be lооking fоr their dual-threat signal-caller tо get better in the passing game.
