There has been a steady stream of contributions from Notre Dame's freshmen this season.
Aaron Lynch, Stephon Tuitt and George Atkinson III have been the most visible, but who else among the freshman class will have an impact on next season?
Ahead are six players that have flown under the radar. You won't see Ishaq Williams, Lynch, Tuitt or Atkinson on this list (all of whom will play huge roles next year).
So, while these guys might not have done enough to grab your attention thus far, they will certainly play a part in improving the Fighting Irish next season.
