Justin Brent profile

How has it been out here so far?
It's been very good. Just to be able to come out here and compete with the best of the best is amazing, and these guys, man, they're out here battling just like everybody else. I go into it with no pressure because I am committed, so I just come out here and have fun. That's really what it is.

Has anyone else caught your eye throughout the day?
Oh man, all three of my quarterbacks, those guys are great. There was one quarterback for the Field Generals, he played the second half against us, very underrated and he's going to help a team out one day.

Are you recruiting anyone on behalf of Notre Dame out here?
A lot of people ask me that, but I'm horrible at that, so I put my two cents in and say come to Notre Dame, but for the most part, I just let people like Elijah handle that.

Indianapolis is loaded at receiver this year. Is there any friendly competition between you guys, or what is that dynamic like?
Man, we're all cool with each other, Austin's here, Terry's here, Dominique Booth, those guys will be playing wideout next year and we just lost our quarterback, so I'm going to be playing running back, safety and returning punts, so it will be a competition between them this year, but when he get to college it will be a competition between all of us.

Have you gotten to work with DeShone Kizer this week at all?
I haven't gotten to throw with him, but we hang out the whole time we're here and he texts me sometimes. He's a really cool dude and I'm excited we have him.

What are some of your goals for your Notre Dame career?
I tell everybody, I know it's hard to get a starting spot as a freshman, so I just want to get into the rotation as a freshman and I will be happy with that.

What about down the line?
You know, the NFL is so far fetched. I just want to come out successful. If it is the NFL, then so be it, but if not, then I'm just happy getting my degree and being successful afterwards.
