Beats by Dre has hit the ground running when it comes to the new NIL deals, and on Thursday, it announced its inaugural “Beats Elite” Class.

Included on this list is Notre Dame quarterback Sam Hartman, who is learning pretty quickly there are benefits of being the starting QB at Notre Dame.

Just last week, Hartman was able to provide his teammates with a brand new pair of SlipSpeed shoes as part of his agreement with Under Armour.

Hartman is one of 15 players in the Beats Elite Class, with 12 of them being quarterbacks.

With all of these endorsements and accolades off the field for Hartman, he is going to be watched even more intensely as he begins his first season as the Notre Dame quarterback.

The Fighting Irish kick their season off on Saturday against Navy at 2:30 p.m. ET. The game is being played in Dublin, Ireland, and is the third time these two schools have played in Ireland.
