Heuerman makes Irish choice

After poring over his top schools Mike Heuerman has arrived at a decision in advance of spring practice.

The four-star tight end from Naples, Fla., confirmed he has given a verbal commitment to Notre Dame on the heels of a couple spring unofficial visits to campus and a visit from two Irish coaches to school Thursday.

Notre Dame first hosted Heuerman in late March and made a strong impression.

"I had a real good vibe man," Heuerman told IrishIllustrated.com after that first trip. "It was sweet. I will tell you straight up, I really did enjoy it."

The Irish won out over finalists LSU, Miami and Ohio State. Heuerman's older brother, Jeff, plays tight end at Ohio State.

Alabama, Oregon, Arkansas, Auburn, Connecticut, Florida State, Louisville, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, South Florida and Vanderbilt also extended scholarship offers.

Heuerman visited Ohio State last weekend for its spring game then returned home in hopes of making a decision. He had previously visited LSU and Miami. Notre Dame hosted the 6-foot-4, 220-pound prospect in late March then again in the days before his last trip to Ohio State.

Running backs and slot receivers coach Tony Alford, who serves as primary recruiter, followed up by visiting Barron Collier High School on Thursday alongside tight ends coach Scott Booker.

The duo received a commitment from their top tight end target as result.
