Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Michael Heuerman for Your Viewing Pleasure…

Notre Dame’s got something going on at Tight End, and the latest round in the chamber is Mike Heuerman, a four star recruit who just verbally committed to Notre Dame. Here’s the good: he’s ranked number ten at the position by Rivals.com. He’s 6’4″, 220 pounds. Here’s the better: he’s from a little-known football state called FLORIDA and held offers from some piddling programs LSU, Miami and tOSU. Clearly, the departure of Aaron Lynch has not closed the door to big time recruits leaving the Sunshine State for South Bend. Or turning down LSU for Notre Dame.

Welcome aboard, Mike. Go Irish!

About Bayou Irish

Featured Columnist: Notre Dame Football & Other Notre Dame Sports
Hating Hurricanes Since 1990.

Bayou Irish is a Jersey boy and Double Domer who fell under New Orleans' spell in 1995. He's been through Katrina and fourteen years in the Coast Guard, so we cut him some slack, mostly in the form of HLS-subsidized sazeracs. But, when he's not face down on the bar and communing with the ghosts of Faulkner and Capote at the Carousel Bar in the Hotel Monteleone, he's our man in SEC-land, doing his best to convince everyone around him that Graduation Success Rate is a better indicator of success than the number of MNC's won in the last five years.

    Only 6’4”?? We’re really falling off as a program at the TE position. Lou Holtz would have never recruited a guy under 6’5”.

    Oh for the days of Irv Smith, Oscar McBride, and Pete Chrpleywszinegnklafh.

    But seriously, gotta love what you see right there. Nice pick up.
