A local kid, David Perkins, has committed today to Notre Dame. He is a big, versatile player. At his school, Washington High School (located in South Bend, Ind), Perkins played running back, wide receiver, defensive end, and outside linebacker for Washington last season. He is thinking about playing outside linebacker for ND but he also believes there is a slight chance for him to play running back.
Ranked in the top 150 recruits for 2012 by ESPNU, David is sure to be a player Kelly would love to have. He does it all. Offense or defense, he puts his body on the line everyday. He chose the Irish over Michigan State, Mississippi State, Syracuse, and Tennessee. I’d say he made the right decision athletically and academically (no offense to the other schools).
Here’s what Perkins had to say about his decsion:
“It’s a very good opportunity. It’s a decision made for after football also. At the beginning of the process, I really had no interest in Notre Dame. With time, the relationship began to get better. They started to recruit me harder. They just grew on me the more I talked to them and visited them.”
What Perkins says above explains perfectly of how good of a job Coach Kelly is doing at recruiting for the future. He is getting big time players and convincing these prospects to go the Notre Dame way. I cannot be any more excited about the future for the Irish.
