Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton defensive back Chris Nash was ready to compete coming into Saturday’s Irish Invasion.

Nash originally thought he may not be able to make it due to a hip injury, but did ultimately make the trip.

During the camp, Nash had the opportunity to work out under the teaching of defensive backs coach Todd Lyght, which he said was huge.

“It was a blessing,” Nash said. “I definitely took away a lot and it was very humbling. I was blessed to be able to compete at a high level like that and show exactly what I can do.”

Even with the injury, Nash said he came out of the camp feeling healthy.

“It went well,” Nash said. “I had an injured hip early this week, but I came out here and worked and trained hard to get back to 100 percent and I got there. I had a good day at camp.”

Nash added that working with Lyght was informative, and apparently Lyght liked what he saw out of the talented junior.

“He said I was getting out of my breaks really good,” Nash said. “He emphasized staying low and being explosive when the ball is in the air.”

Following the camp, Nash stuck around for the Junior Day on Sunday, and was blown away by what he saw.

“I was pretty floored by how historic the campus was,” Nash said. “It’s very big and the stadium is breathtaking.”

Now that he’s visited, and has had the opportunity to perform in front of Long, Nash said a Notre Dame offer would mean the world to him.

“That would mean a lot,” Nash said. “That would really give me a chance to go to that next level and show exactly what I can do for this program.”
