Yesterday may have been a banner day for the Irish after getting Manti Te'o, but it didn't just affect the 2009 class... it has ripped into the 2010 class as well. Chris Martin, 5 star linebacker / defensive end, has committed to Notre Dame for the 2010 class. Coach Weis hinted at this commitment during his press conference announcing the 2009 class.
Chris seems to be a very dynamic defensive player, and the type that Notre Dame is looking to keep adding to its roster for the future.
Welcome to Notre Dame Chris!!!
More news of note...
- Thomas Bemenderfer, senior offensive lineman, will not try and apply for a fifth year of eligibility. He has decided to instead, attend medical school.
- The 2009 class may still not be finished. Jawanza Starling was reconsidering his decision to play at USC and held his fax until this morning. Irish coaches worked the phone hard, but it was the Trojans in the end. Roby Toma still has not sent his fax to UCLA. Notre dame offered the young man and he may visit the Irish soon before deciding.
