San Diego, Califoria four-star safety Jordan Genmark-Heath “gets” Notre Dame.
Notre Dame gave Sweden-born Jordan Genmark-Heath a lot to think about after his official visit last weekend. The 6’2, 205 pound Cal commit absolutely loved everything about Notre Dame.
Genmark-Heath embodies a lot of the qualities you find in a Notre Dame student-athlete. He takes academics very seriously and understands that not every Division 1 athlete has a passport to the NFL.
Blue and Gold Illustrated caught up with JGH’s high school coach who had this to say –
“He really loved his visit, he loved everything about it and has loved getting to know coach Lyght and even in the short-term of Coach Elko as well. All of that is a real positive. I think he is putting that pro/con list and seeing what is best for him.”
“One of his things has always been he wanted to pick a college that would benefit him through life and academics is important. It is why he chose Cal to begin with. He knows like most kids that go to college and the NFL is a dream, but he understands that the number of people getting that opportunity gets more narrow.”
Genmark-Heath has been getting more respect for his talent lately. He recently jumped to #230 in 247 Sports rankings.
He is very much deserving of the high regards after winning a Div. 1AA California State Championship with Cathedral Catholic. Genmark Heath saw time at safety, linebacker, kick/punt returner, receiver and running back. He dominated at every position.
Jordan Genmark-Heath has a tremendous work ethic on and off the field and is an exemplary citizen. He volunteers at a center for disabled children in San Diego. Service work is something that many Notre Dame football players are a part of on a regular basis.
13 crystal ball predictions have been declared by some of the nations top recruiting analysts. Genmark-Heath is expected to make a decision very soon.
Hopefully he chooses Notre Dame. The Irish will be getting a good one.
