When Cam Hart visited Notre Dame last month, he received a scholarship offer from the Irish.

But unlike most college football recruits, the three-star recruit didn’t share the news on Twitter.

Hart did more than acknowledge his Notre Dame offer on Wednesday. He took to Twitter to announce a verbal commitment to the Irish.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound rising senior chose Notre Dame over offers from Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Virginia, West Virginia, Duke and others. Hart becomes the first wide receiver to commit to Notre Dame’s 2019 class which now includes 16 recruits.

As a junior at Olney (Md.) Good Counsel, Hart totaled 33 receptions for 540 yards and five touchdowns. He also recorded 31 tackles as a defensive back.

“Cam Hart's an intriguing get, because I know some schools coveted him as a DB,” said 247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong. “That shows you the versatility that he brings to your roster. He's a big, athletic kid out in space.

“The Irish have some receivers that are like him now that are older, but he's a guy I think can make a difference at Notre Dame on either side of the ball. He can beat you in a variety of ways at receiver with his physicality and ball skills. He runs fairly well too."

247Sports slates Hart as the No. 101 wide receiver in the 2019 class. Rivals ranks him as the No. 61 athlete, a designation for recruits who can play multiple positions.

Hart attends the same school that sent center Sam Mustipher to Notre Dame.

Notre Dame's 16-man class ranks No. 6 in the country per 247Sports. Rivals ranks the class at No. 9.
