"I camped at Notre Dame two years ago, and I worked with the wide receivers, safeties, and quarterbacks," Hammann said. "I met Coach Elliott and Coach Cooks, and I've stayed in touch with them ever since.""They see me primarily as a safety," Hammann added. "But, I can play wide receiver and cornerback, too." Hammann also could claim a roster spot at Air Force, Army, Cornell, Drake and Yale. "It was the atmosphere of Notre Dame," Hammann said, who grew up an Iowa fan. "It's just incredible. I went to the Wake Forest game my junior year, and I went to the USC game this past season. I want to be a part of that." Hammann expects to bring speed to the Irish roster. "I would say my best attribute is my speed. I've been timed at the 40 at 4.34, but that was handheld, so I always tell people not to place too much stock in that," Hammann said, laughing.
