Alohi Gilman Transfers To Notre Dame

June 9, 2017

NOTRE DAME, Indiana - Brian Kelly, the Dick Corbett Head Football Coach at the University of Notre Dame, announced Friday that safety Alohi Gilman has transferred to the University from the United States Naval Academy. Gilman will be eligible to play for the Fighting Irish starting with the 2018 season.

“I’m extremely grateful to be a part of the Notre Dame family,” Gilman said. “I’m thankful to the coaching staff and the man above for not only believing in me, but also providing this opportunity. I’m excited for this next chapter in my journey.”

“First of all, Alohi is a great fit here in terms of his character and also what he wants to achieve academically,” Kelly said. “Clearly, that’s primary in our recruiting. Secondly, in terms of his football fit, we got a good look of him against us last season. He plays the style of safety we want in this program. Alohi’s a run-and-hit safety that fits perfectly in the Mike Elko defense.”

Gilman played a key role on the Midshipmen defense as a true freshman in 2016. The Laie, Hawai'i, native appeared in 14 games and started 12, including three different positions (outside linebacker, corner and safety). Gilman registered 76 tackles and five pass breakups -- both ranked as the second most on the squad. He recorded 50 solo stops, five tackles for loss (third best on Navy), two fumble recoveries, including one for a touchdown, and one forced fumble.

A 2015 graduate of Kahuku High School with honors, Gilman attended the Naval Academy Prep School during the 2015-16 academic year. He was a three-sport athlete in basketball, football and track & field, who lettered three times in football at three different schools. Gilman earned all-state football honors as a senior in 2014 and all-region recognition as a junior in ‘13.
