Timing of the essence with Irish QBs, WRs

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Typically, training camp is an opportunity for a quarterback to fine-tune his timing and chemistry with his wide receivers. But with four quarterbacks getting looked at hard during this camp, the eventual Notre Dame starter won't have as many reps with his wideouts as a starter normally would. 

Receiver T.J. Jones didn't sound concerned, though.

"Our quarterbacks, for the most part, their arm strength and how they throw the ball is very similar to each other," Jones said after Monday's third practice of camp. "So the timing might be a little off, but if you're int he spot you're supposed to be in, then the ball will be there."

Jones -- who is expected to take over Michael Floyd's role as the team's go-to wide receiver -- likes what he's seen so far from Andrew Hendrix, Everett Golson, Gunner Kiel and Tommy Rees.

"An an offense, we've made a lot of improvement (since) the spring, just in the short period of summer we had to work together," Jones said. "The quarterbacks look a lot more sound and comfortable than they did back in the spring."
