College football fans have never heard of Notre Dame wide receiver Daniel Smith, but he’s suddenly found himself to be the Big Man on Campus in South Bend after it was discovered on Thursday that he is dating former Notre Dame women’s basketball star Skylar Diggins.
Diggins posted a picture on Instagram of the two posing together on Wednesday night with the caption, “My good-looking honey and I,” after which the internet immediately flipped out and men across the country were crushed to learn that the gorgeous basketball star and recent No. 3 overall pick in the WNBA draft by the Tulsa Shock is taken.
After the picture was posted on The Big Lead, tipsters flooded the site with tips that the boyfriend is an Irish football player. Smith, a rising senior, has a total of seven catches for 47 yards in his Irish career – all of which were last fall – but he has clearly made his biggest catch off the football field.
As you can tell from the tweets below, he is the envy of America right now.
