He's a Legacy, He has to get in
From Rivals: Notre Dame started its next recruiting class on Monday with a familiar name that came on board in an unconventional way. The Irish received a verbal commitment from offensive lineman Mike Golic Jr., son of former Notre Dame defensive lineman Mike Golic Sr., while the standout from West Hartford, Conn., was in the middle of a class trip to Italy.
6'5" 265 lb Offensive Tackle will be a welcome addition to the 2008 class. He was an S class all star in Connecticut and had interest in OSU, USC and UMiami.
Last year the first commit, Kerry Neal, did so on Feb. 24th. And like Neal, I expect this committment to stick through 2008. Charlie has stated that once you commit to Notre Dame, You are Committed to Notre Dame. Don't look elsewhere or you're gone. I like that tactic and think it will be very good in the long run. No more Chicken Littles on NSD.
