Incoming Irish: Mike McGlinchey
Offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey will enroll at Notre Dame in just five days, and he spoke with IrishEyes.com about his preparation for the next chapter in his life. "The off-season has been great," McGlinchey said. "The workout packet is not too different from what I do in high school, but the tempo is much faster and makes a lot harder. You get no breaks. I have been lifting and running every day." McGlinchey is finished playing basketball and been focused on getting bigger since the end of the season. "I'm athletic, smart and I move well," McGlinchey said. "I put an emphasis on finishing my blocks. I am 6'9", 290 pounds right now. I weighed 265 after basketball season and have put on 25 pounds since then. I want to get as big as I can the healthy way." "We haven't had that conversation yet about redshirting," McGlinchey added. "We'll see when I get to camp. They want me to play left tackle, though." Regardless if he reshirts or plays 2013, McGlinchey is looking forward to new competition. He says he plans on being an education major at Notre Dame. "I can't wait to get out there and face my teammates that are also my competition," McGlinchey said. "I'm looking forward to growing as a player and as a student. There are going to be a lot of challenges ahead but it's going to be fun too." McGlinchey chose Navy and USC as the two games he's most looking forward to in 2013. McGlinchey was ranked as a four-star prospect and as the No. 8 offensive tackle in Scout.com's final rankings for 2013.
