Kyle Brindza will have an uphill climb at the kicking position as he competes as a freshman. With senior David Ruffer and sophomore Nick Tausch coming back next season, the Irish are returning the owners of the two longest consecutive field goals converted streaks in Notre Dame history. With Brindza’s track record, that should not faze him in the slightest.
The Michigan native was one of the most heavily recruited kickers in the nation in the class of 2011 and features a very strong foot, as he consistently made long field goals and sent kickoffs through the end zone. Although he is unlikely to see game action in 2011 for the Irish, he should be a key contributor in the future.
