Brian Kelly announced today that Troy Niklas will be a part of the 2011 recruiting class.
Kelly said that Niklas can play number of positions, but that Niklas will likely start out on the defensive side of the ball.
Niklas surprised many by selecting the Irish over USC. With Niklas' commitment, Notre Dame will bring in a class of 23 players in 2011.
