Dylan Faison has made it clear that when he joins the Notre Dame football team, he'll follow a similar path as his big bro.

The newest commit for the Notre Dame football team has a familiar name. Thanks to his brother paving the way, 2026 recruitin Dylan Faison was comfortable enough with what he knows about the Golden Domers that he gave his pledge just one day after getting an official offer.

It’s not totally unusual for a recruit to commit so soon after getting an offer. However, it usually comes when a player is just a few months or weeks away from signing day. It’s not usually so easy for the coaching staff when the prospect is years away from being able to sign his National Letter of Intent.

However, Dylan Faison’s comments about the Notre Dame football team and his commitment clearly show that he was comfortable with the decision. He was especially comfortable with his position coach, Mike Brown, despite the fact that Brown is actually pretty new to South Bend.

“He immediately made me feel almost like I was one of his own already,” Faison told 247Sports. “You know what I'm getting at? He made me feel like Notre Dame was my home and they've already accepted me in their family.”

Notre Dame football makes Dylan Faison part of their family in more ways than one

Family is clearly important when it comes to Dylan, considering that he’s joining his brother Jordan at the school. At least in a few years. 

“I think that the blueprint that he [Jordan Faison] followed is definitely the thing that I will be doing,” Dylan added in the recent interview.

That blueprint is playing both football and lacrosse. After seeing the way that Jordan has made it work, you can hardly blame the young man for following suit.

Faison, who is considered a 3-star prospect by Rivals, doesn’t have any other offers at the moment. It’s a safe bet that they will come. But for now, it sure doesn’t seem as though the Notre Dame football team has much to worry about in terms of losing him.
