Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Tristen Hoge Commits


Notre Dame Football Recruiting

The Irish are off to an excellent start in their 2015 recruiting class. In fact, they have never had this many recruits committed in a class so quicklyAfter landing Louisiana Offensive Tackle Jerry Tillery and California Quarterback Blake Barnett, Brian Kelly has received a commitment from Idaho Offensive Guard Tristen Hoge. Hoge is rated as the #1 Offensive Guard by Scout.com.

Hoge’s recruitment came down Florida and Notre Dame. It was predicted that Notre Dame would be his final destination for a while. During his visit this weekend, he made the decision that South Bend was the place for him.

Hoge had several offers from big time programs including Florida, LSU, Stanford and UCLA. He is a consensus 4-star recruit by recruiting services. He was recently named the Idaho Gatorade Player of the Year.

Offensive Line recruiting has been fantastic for Notre Dame since hiring Harry Heistand. Notre Dame should be able to dominate up front on the Offensive side of the ball into the next decade.
