Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman has entered the NCAA transfer portal, and multiple reports Tuesday indicated he could be headed to Notre Dame.

Hartman, 23, has one year of eligibility remaining.

On Friday, he set the Atlantic Coast Conference record for career touchdown passes while helping Wake Forest notch a 27-17 victory over Missouri in the Gasparilla Bowl at Tampa, Fla.

Hartman leaves the Demon Deacons with 110 touchdown passes in five seasons. He is second in ACC history with 12,967 yards, behind Philip Rivers, who played at North Carolina State.

This season, Hartman played in 12 games, completing 270 of 428 passes (63.1 percent) for 3,701 yards with 38 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. His average of 308.42 yards per game was ninth in the nation, and he was third in touchdown passes.

Notre Dame needs an experienced quarterback to fill the spot vacated by Drew Pyne, who transferred to Arizona State. The Fighting Irish and their pro-style offense would benefit Hartman, who has NFL aspirations.
