The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team just got another young upgrade on Monday afternoon. According Bud Elliot of SB Nation College Recruiting, the Fighting Irish have received a commitment from athlete recruit Davonte Neal.
Neal had been considering both the Fighting Irish and the Arizona Wildcats, but waited to announce his decision until Tuesday afternoon, despite a planned press conference earlier in the day. Neal joins a strong recruitment class that inludes QB Gunner Kiel and RB William Mahone, five and four star prospect respectively.
The Irish finished the 2011 NCAA football season with an 8-5 record and lost to the Florida St. Seminoles in the 2011 Champs Sports Bowl, 18-14.
