He also says he was impressed during the scrimmage with the play of backup tight end Tyler Eifert and the progress of starting quarterback Dayne Crist.

Also playing well has been freshman quarterback Tommy Rees, who is battling Nate Montana for the backup role behind Crist.

The Irish will practice again Sunday and twice Monday. Media day is Tuesday before another practice. They open Sept. 4 at home against Purdue.
