Notre Dame is still in search of a second running back in the 2022 class, and the Irish coaches have expanded the board in that search, throwing out an offer to Pike Road (Ala.) High School standout Quinshon Judkins.
Judkins rushed for 1482 yards (9.9 YPG) and 25 touchdowns in 10 games as a junior for the Patriots. That came after he rushed for 1,131 yards (10.6 YPC) and 16 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2019. Judkins hauled in 18 passes for 338 yards (18.8 YPC) and three scores in the pass game during that stretch.
The 6-0, 200-pound running back played defensive back as a true freshman in 2018, and he racked up 38 tackles in nine games.
Although he lacks the home run speed teams covet, Judkins has a lot of outstanding running back traits. He has an ideal running back build that includes a thick lower body, and he's a short strider, which is something I like in a back.
Judkins has quick feet and his agility stands out on film, plus his balance is outstanding. He also shows impressive vision and anticipation as a runner.
