Notre Dame An Early Standout For Georgia Safety Emory Floyd

Even before Notre Dame offered on February 22, the Irish were a top school for 2022 safety Emory Floyd.

The 6-2, 165-pounder out of Powder Springs (Ga.) Hillgrove grew up watching Notre Dame on Saturday afternoons, and after receiving his offer from the staff, he was elated.

“Watching Notre Dame as a kid, man, it makes this all feel crazy,” Floyd said. “My mom and the whole family are big Notre Dame fans. I know it's a great school, my mom loves them for the football team and the academics.”

Floyd has always made academics a priority in his life. He knows that he can’t play football where he wants to without having the grades to back it up, and that includes a place like Notre Dame.

Along with top-notch academics, Floyd is looking for a coaching staff he can build a strong connection with and trust. He wants to become a better man in all facets of life, and Irish safeties coach Chris O’Leary believes he is the man to do it.
