He was widely expected to be one of the team’s top weapons this season.Brock Wright was expected to fill in nicely for Kmet, but it was actually Tommy Tremble who played well in the team’s season opener against Louisville. The sophomore tight end had three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown.The Fighting Irish could use Kmet on the field during the middle of the season, especially when you consider how tough their schedule gets over time.Within the next two months, Notre Dame will face Georgia, Michigan, Virginia and USC.
