Moment I knew I wanted to be Irish: “I was at an ND basketball game. Michigan State was in the running, and Ole Miss was in the running. At that basketball game, it came out that Michigan State had a scandal with the sexual assault stuff. Then Ole Miss had a scandal. I don’t know what they did. It all happened at one time. I was at the basketball game, and I was like, ‘I’m going to commit today.’ I was a silent commit for about a week.”
