Sam Hartman is heading to Notre Dame. He announced his decision on social media Thursday and will spend his final year of college eligibility with the Irish. Hartman is regarded as the top transfer QB this offseason.
The former Wake Forest QB made 45 career starts and ended his Demon Deacon career with 12,967 passing yards and 110 passing touchdowns. Hartman’s 110 touchdown passes is the most ever by a ACC QB and his passing yards ranks second all-time, trailing only former NC State and Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers.
Hartman was twice named an All-ACC quarterback and led the Deacons to an 11-3 record and a trip to the ACC championship game. During the last two seasons Wake Forest has gone 19-8.
Notre Dame went into this portal cycle looking for a veteran QB to compete with sophomore Tyler Buchner for the starting role.
Hartman brings a dynamic element to Notre Dame’s offense. He joins a Notre Dame program that is projected to start next season highly ranked, as the Irish finished 9-4 and won six of their final seven games. That included a bowl victory over South Carolina, an upset of Clemson and a blowout victory at Syracuse.
