Sam Hartman is heading to Notre Dame.

The former Wake Forest QB recently entered the transfer portal after a great season in 2022, and Notre Dame is believed to be his likely landing spot.

Now, it’s official. He announced his decision Thursday afternoon.

Prior to his official announcement, it was reported by On3.com that the former Wake Forest QB was in South Bend visiting the Fighting Irish.

Sam Hartman is a huge addition for the Fighting Irish.

Sam Hartman committing to Notre Dame is a massive addition to Marcus Freeman’s QB room. Freeman already has Tyler Buchner slotted in as his QB1, but there’s no doubt Hartman would be an upgrade.

There’s no question about that at all.

Buchner, who only played two regular season games and then the bowl game this year, has a high ceiling. He’s very athletic and mobile. Tyler Buchner is definitely a guy with a bright future.

However, Sam Hartman is great right now. He’s a star with a potential future in the NFL. It’s hard to imagine a scenario where Hartman isn’t starting week one of the 2023 season.

The question then is whether or not Buchner sticks around or dips. If you’re a Notre Dame fan, you definitely want him to hang around, but the young passer might not want to just see another year of limited action.

With Hartman under center, the Fighting Irish should be an immediate contender in 2023. If you’re a fan of the Fighting Irish, there’s no question today is a great day. Marcus Freeman should be grinning ear-to-ear right now with the talented QB coming his way.
