That leaves converted receiver Bennett Jackson, sophomores Jalen Brown, Josh Atkinson and Cam McDaniel, and freshman Elijah Shumate, a converted safety, and freshman KeiVarae Russell, a converted running back, as Notre Dame's entire depth chart.
Wood, a 5-10, 195-pound junior, played 10 games last year, and had a 57-yard pick-six against Maryland. He and Jackson are the only corners on the roster with any college experience beyond special teams play.
Even when Wood was healthy, cornerback was easily the most troubling position for Notre Dame. The Irish lost Gary Gray and Robert Blanton -- who started all 13 games last season -- to graduation and didn't bring in a single recruit at the position (two high-profile recruits, Tee Shepard and Ronald Darby, each originally committed, but didn't stick).
