Irish Land Atkinson and Atkinson

Josh and George Atkinson have committed to Notre Dame. The twin brothers are the 17th and 18th commitments of Notre Dame's 2011 recruiting class.

IrishEyes received a text message from Josh Atkinson that read, ""We committed!" The text message is referring to Josh and his twin brother George.

Josh will play cornerback for Notre Dame, while George is being recruited as either a running back or wide receiver. It is possible that George will be used in a similar manner that Theo Riddick currently fills for Notre Dame.

The Atkinson's are still at Notre Dame and cannot be reached for comment until they leave campus on Monday. Top Stories
