The Notre Dame Fighting Irish coaching staff will attend the Georgia State Panthers' football camp next summer, per multiple reports.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish coaching staff will attend the Georgia State Panthers' football camp next summer, per multiple reports. 

The Irish's staff will team up with former Notre Dame assistant and current Georgia State head coach Trent Miles, per Michael Carvell of The Atlanta Journal-Consitution:

"Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly and his football staff will be 'guest coaches' at Georgia State's football camp next summer. 

"'I talked to Notre Dame and it was a mutual thing -- they thought it was a great idea, and they've been recruiting Georgia,' said Georgia State head coach Trent Miles, a former Notre Dame assistant coach.

"'It's great for us getting the exposure and getting some kids on our campus that Notre Dame will bring because of their name. I think it will be great for Notre Dame because they have a national presence, and I'm very close to those guys.'

"Having big-name guest coaches at summer camps a new trend in college football, this is the second high-profile deal secured by Georgia State in the last month. On June 10, Penn State (Nittany Lions) coach James Franklin and his staff will serve as guest coaches for Trent Miles Football Camp. 

"It's a win-win for both sides: it gives Notre Dame and Penn State the chance to perform in-person evaluations of Georgia prospects who would never travel to the northern schools for summer camps, and it also gives Georgia State exposure to elite prospects. 

"This week, the SEC coaches have complained about the arrangement, mainly due to the fact that their conference rules prevent them from working as guest coaches at an off-site location. They'd like for the NCAA to close the loophole. 

"'I'm hearing that the SEC isn't really happy but I'm worried about us at Georgia State,' Mile said with a chuckle. 'I'm only concerned about Georgia State, and I have close ties to Notre Dame. If I can do something to help Notre Dame, I will.'"

The South Bend Tribune's Al Lesar weighed on the Notre Dame-Georgia State team-up in his June 4 article

"Other than Miles torching a whole lot of bridges to the SEC, which probably never existed anyway, the positives for him and the Irish are plenty. Get a first-hand look at the best of the best from the Atlanta area and points nearby. 

"Some may realize they aren't in the same athletic stratosphere as those coveted by the Irish, but Georgia State might be a perfect fit. 

"Win. Win. 

"Now, if that can only translate on the field. 

"Locating and developing a relationship with the athletes is a nice place to start. Transforming a program into one that can compete on a regular basis is quite another. 

"The arrival of artificial turf at Notre Dame Stadium will, at least, make the Irish look faster. Impressions and perceptions can be the foundation for change. Maybe a little smoke and mirrors. Even if the 40 times aren't faster, they may look better doing it. 

"With limited spots on the schedule available, there needs to be an effort to schedule SEC teams -- and not just bottom feeders like Kentucky, Arkansas, and either of the Mississippis. 

"Word that scheduling discussions between Notre Dame and Georgia are on the 'front burner' is proof positive that the Irish have a plan to establish themselves as a competitive force with anyone in the game." 

In another development, 247sports.com's Justin Hopkins reported on June 4 that quarterback prospect Blake Barnett has decommitted from the Irish. 

"Fresh off the surprise visit to Oregon, Corona (Calif.) quarterback Blake Barnett has decommitted from Notre Dame. 

"The nation's No. 65 overall player has informed 247Sports of his decision to re-open his recruitment. 

"'I'm no longer committed to Notre Dame and I have opened up my recruitment,' Barnett said. 'I'm not committed to Oregon or anywhere and I've decided to explore my options.'

"Barnett confirmed he is no longer considering the Irish following his de-commitment. 

 

"Tennessee, Alabama and numerous others have offered Barnett and remain in the hunt for a quarterback in this class. 

"With Barnett back on the market, his recruitment could skyrocket in terms of new offers. The nation's No. 3 dual-threat quarterback, per the 247Sports Composite is one of the elite players at his position. 

"Oregon remains the overwhelming favorite via the 247Sports Crystal Ball for Barnett."
