Shortly after receiving word of a Notre Dame offer, Damian Alloway had his eyes on an official visit. The four-star recruit learned of the Irish offer Thursday after associate head coach Mike Denbrock visited Summit High School in Fontana, Calif.

Later he told ND Insider he hopes to visit South Bend for Notre Dame's game against USC in October. The Irish became an instant contender for the do-it-all prospect.

Alloway, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound prospect, played running back, wide receiver, defensive back and returned kicks in his junior season at Summit. He said the Irish are recruiting him as an offensive athlete who could play running back or wide receiver and a return specialist.

He finished his junior season with 642 yards and eight touchdowns rushing, 635 yards and 10 touchdowns receiving and four return touchdowns on special teams. Alloway also added 33 tackles and three interceptions on defense.

247Sports slates Alloway as the No. 3 all-purpose back and No. 101 regardless of position in the 2016 class. Rivals ranks him as the No. 7 athlete and No. 99 overall.

Notre Dame joined the likes of California, UCLA, Wisconsin, Arizona State and several other programs in offering Alloway.
