Last Man In?

Notre Dame has 23 commitments, but they'd like to add one more. It appears that their final shot will be with Troy Niklas from Servite High School (Anaheim, Calif.) is in South Bend this weekend for his official visit.

Troy Niklas (6-foot-5, 265-pounds) has made official visits to Stanford and USC and this weekend he is at Notre Dame for his final official visit.

Niklas is ranked as the No. 8 offensive tackle in the country. Notre Dame is recruiting him to play defensive end, but he could easily shift to the offensive side of the ball and play offensive tackle, which is where USC is recruiting him to play.

This week Niklas eliminated Stanford from consideration, so he will decide between Notre Dame and USC. Niklas will announce his decision on signing day.
