The Notre Dame wide receiving corps is more than just Michael Floyd. In order to run Brian Kelly’s offense effectively, there has to be more than just one player getting the ball.

Floyd is one of the best in the country at going up and getting the ball, but it has become apparent in the first five days of fall camp that there will be other wide receivers to compliment his skills.

There is junior Theo Riddick, who started in 2010, along with John Goodman, Robby Toma, and rookie DeVaris Daniels, but so far in camp, Brian Kelly likes what he sees in sophomore T.J. Jones.

Coach Kelly says, “I think T.J. has had really as consistent a five days as any of our guys. I really would highlight him today, in terms of what he’s done. John’s had a good five days. T.J.’s done it both at X and Z because, remember, he’s our guy that can move around a little bit for us and give us better flexibility. That battle is ongoing. It’s going to be a good one. DeVaris Daniels has an outstanding skill set.”

The Irish will practice twice on Friday. It is the first two-a-day session during fall camp.
