Bredeson visited Notre Dame for the matchup between the Irish and Wolverines. This represented the second time Bredeson visited South Bend. The Arrowhead High School product visited South Bend over the summer where he received a Notre Dame offer.

The 6’4″ 255 lbs. Offensive Tackle holds offers from 13 schools including Ohio State and Michigan.  Experts currently favor Wisconsin in his recruitment. Iowa, Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin will play a major role in his recruitment.

Bredeson’s two visits to South Bend show a significant amount of interest in the Fighting Irish. With Offensive Line Coach Harry Hiestand, Notre Dame has a great chance at any Offensive Line recruit. The depth at Offensive Linemen may hamper the Notre Dame’s chances with prospects. However, Offensive Linemen generally expect to wait their turns they physically prepare themselves for college football.
