Receiver Goodman is 'getting there'
Brian Kelly has talked about how Robby Toma has emerged as a leader, how sophomore TJ Jones is continuing his ascent and how freshman DaVaris Daniels may earn playing time if he can digest the playbook.
The Notre Dame coach was recently asked if any other backup receivers had impressed him of late.
"The last couple of days John Goodman has," Kelly said. "John has been an enigma in the sense that he has a lot of athletic ability and he shows real big flashes. We had a one-one meeting a copule days ago about consistency. If he can give us the consistent performance he's capable of athletically, then add him to the list. And Daniels gets better every day. You're talking about TJ, you're talking about Goodman being a swing guy."
Goodman caught 15 passes for 146 yards last season while serving primarily as a punt returner.
"When you look at John, sometimes he has to be more of a split personality," Kelly said. "He carries himself sometimes in a manner that I would like to see a little bit more tenacious, a little bit more aggressive. He's getting there."
