“Austin is our energy guy and a big part of our leadership. He has a great feel for our program and culture. Come into the game, run, the floor, block shots, rebound and defend. That is his role and that will not change this year. I think he can add leadership and become a voice in our locker room.”
- Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey
