Moment I knew I wanted to be Irish: “The week I committed, it was a toss-up between a few schools. But I weighed my options, and I realized how much I enjoyed myself at Notre Dame. I felt that it was a place made for a guy like me.”

One word to describe Brian Kelly: "Remarkable."

Expectations for my freshman season: “Go in there and kill it, be able to get some playing time on offense or special teams and just be a big part of the turnaround that we’re going to have in the years to come.”

Favorite football accomplishment: “Winning a district championship every year. Anything that’s team-oriented. I’m not too big on player accomplishments.”

Should football have an early signing period? “No. The signing day when everything gets started is the appropriate time, because we’re kids at the end of the day.
