The Notre Dame football staff loves offering players with NFL bloodlines and this recent offer sure has the flavor.
Head coach Marcus Freeman has a previous relationship for NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher.
They were teammates in 2009, both of them in the same position group playing for the Chicago Bears.
The familiarity with the family has led the Irish to offer a scholarship to Kennedy Urlacher,
Brian’s son. The younger Urlacher doesn’t play the same position as his father, Kennedy is a safety,
which is the same spot his dad played with at New Mexico before a transition to linebacker with the Bears.
The offer from Notre Dame isn’t Kenney’s first Power-5 offer but you can argue that it is his biggest up-to-date.
