Maybe he wears #45 for a reason
Shibley is a Cleveland native (St. Ignatius) is a former walk-on for the Wolverines as part of the 2017 recruiting class. He earned a scholarship while in Ann Arbor and started the final two games at linebacker for Michigan in 2020. In all, he saw action in 5 games last season and tallied 20 tackles with 2 TFL.
According to Eric Hansen, Shibley will walk-on for the Irish this fall as he pursues his Master’s degree in the Mendoza College of Business.
Notre Dame still doesn’t have a massive amount of numbers at linebacker for 2021, so even as a walk-on, Shibley has a chance to earn a role with the Irish. Even if that role is mostly on special teams, I know a certain former #45 that would greatly approve of him fulfilling that dream.
