Position battles looming in South Bend

Notre Dame faces an intriguing spring, as Brian Kelly and his staff have to replace over a dozen starters from the 2015 season.

Fortunately for Kelly, he has a similar problem to Clemson’s Dabo Swinney, Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher, as well as a few other head coaches around the country. By stockpiling talent in recent recruiting cycles, Kelly has the Fighting Irish in a position talent-wise to adequately replace the overwhelming majority of the guys that have left.
