Quarterback Kenny Minchey Commits To Notre Dame
The last remaining hole in Notre Dame’s vaunted 2023 recruiting class has been filled with quarterback Kenny Minchey committing to the Fighting Irish. After making an official visit at Notre Dame, Hendersonville (Tenn.), Pope John Paul II star, Minchey pledged his support to the Irish just over a week later.
Notre Dame offered Minchey during the summer, but the 6-2, 205-pound signal caller initially decided to stick with his commitment to the Panthers. The Irish staff stayed on Minchey and eventually was able to convince him to make the move to jump into the 2023 class.
The Irish were the nation’s No. 3 overall recruiting class on the 247Sports composite rankings and the No. 2 on Rivals, but the Irish still had one major hole ….. quarterback. Minchey is a great addition to Notre Dame’s throwers and gives the staff the type of impact talent they need at quarterback.
Minchey was a senior who missed six games due to a shoulder injury. However, he was exceptional when he did play. Minchey completed 69.1% of his passes for 1,007 yards. and 15 touchdowns in parts of six games games. As a junior, the Pope star completed 61.3% of his throws while passing for 3,280 yards and 32 touchdowns.
SI All-American ranked Minchey the No. 80 overall player, and he ranks No. 81 overall on the Irish Breakdown Top 100 from the summer.
