Hounshell is No. 23

Chase Hounshell from Lake Catholic High School (Mentor, Ohio) confirms that he committed to Notre Dame Monday night.

Chase Hounshell (6-foot-5, 250-pounds) was committed to Florida but today he made a switch to Notre Dame.

"It's true I did commit to Notre Dame," Hounshell said. "To be completely honest, when I woke up today I didn't have the intention of committing to Notre Dame.

"Coach Elston and coach Diaco came by the house today. I've been able to build pretty good relationships with them and they told me how big of a part that I could play at Notre Dame, how good the recruiting class was and how good this team was about to be. They said that they wanted me along for the ride. They told me I could come in and start fighting for a position, so I committed.
