Former Notre Dame tight end taking on a new role with another college program

Former Notre Dame walk-on tight end Barret Liebentritt will continue his college football career elsewhere. On Saturday, Liebentritt announced he would join the Nebraska Cornhuskers for the 2023 season. 

The 6-foot, 235-pound Liebentritt entered the transfer portal earlier this spring. He is originally from Omaha, Neb., and attended Skutt Catholic. Liebentritt will join the Cornhuskers with three seasons of eligibility. 

“Thank you to (head) Coach (Marcus) Freeman, (tight ends) Coach Gertad Parker and (strength) Coach (Matt) Balis and the entire staff for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime to play at Notre Dame,” Liebentritt said in a statement on Saturday.

“The people are what make Notre Dame special and I’m thankful for the lifelong relationships I’ve formed with my teammates,” he continued. “Notre Dame will always hold a special place in my heart.

“With that being said, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be coming home to play fullback at Nebraska. Thank you to (head) Coach (Matt) Rhule and the staff for the opportunity. I can’t wait to get to work.” 

Last season, Liebentritt appeared in all 13 games on special teams. He primarily contributed to the kick return team. He did not register any statistics. 

Liebentritt did not report any full-ride scholarship offers coming out of high school.
