Practice Notes 8/22

The Irish started practice this week, as they are now officially under 2 weeks from their primetime matchup against #2 Ohio State on September 3rd.

Jersey Number Changes -


  • A couple of number switches before we get into the practice report. Logan Diggs switched his number to #3, what Avery Davis had before. Xavier Watts stayed in #26 as he worked with the wide receivers today.


Notes -


  • Deion Colzie was a full participant in practice today, with a knee brace on. It was Colzie’s first time as a full participant in over 10 days.


  • Jayden Thomas was back in action today after being on the sidelines for 2 practices.


  • Jarrett Patterson stayed sidelined, but worked with the trainers in The Pit along with Jadarian Price, Aidan Keanaaina, Caleb Johnson, and Davis Sherwood who is now at fullback. Last season, Sherwood was part of the special teams, and it looks like he is switching positions.


  • Avery Davis was at practice today with a left crutch, and was working with his receiver teammates during drills. Although, Braden Lenzy had a rough day it seems, a couple of drops and a slip on a route plus a false start after having a great camp. But, Joe Wilkins Jr. continues to seem more and more comfortable back at practice after being sidelined for a while with an illness.


  • The Irish got up to 8 receivers on scholarship today: Deion Colzie, Braden Lenzy, Tobias Merriweather, Matt Salerno, Lorenzo Styles, Jayden Thomas, Xavier Watts, and Joe Wilkins.


  • Finally, backup TE Kevin Bauman had the play of practice with a great reaching catch behind himself.


The Irish for sure have more work to do as they have been hit by the injury bug lately, needing to take care of those situations before heading to Columbus. Overall, it seems the Irish progressed in practice today as they are now 12 days away from their Week 1 matchup against Ohio State.
