JOHN SHANNON
Lake Forest, Illinois

Measurables: 6’2″, 220 lbs.

Accolades: No. 1 long snapper in country, per multiple services, U.S. Army Bowl All-American, No. 1 long snapper per 247.

Impressive Offers: West Virginia

Projected Position: Long Snapper

Quick Take: You don’t know you need a long snapper until it’s too late. So adding Shannon continues the trend of Notre Dame offering specialists, with the incoming freshman set to take over duties after Scott Daly exits in 2016.

What he means to the Irish: The Irish coaching staff hasn’t missed on their specialist offers, with first-year contributors Justin Yoon and Tyler Newsome stepping in seamlessly this season. That makes you all but forget the hodgepodge of scholarships allocated to getting special teams right by previous regimes. He’s an important piece of the 85-man scholarship roster.
