5-Star Day Commits to Notre Dame

Warren Central High (Indianapolis) five-star defensive tackle Sheldon Day joined Notre Dame's 2012 class when he gave a non-binding oral commitment to Irish coach Brian Kelly today.

Notre Dame had long had Sheldon Day atop its defensive tackle list, and Wednesday the Irish landed the five-star prospect from Indianapolis' Warren High.

Day made the decision after deliberation with his family.

"He really wanted to do his official visits," Warrren Central coach John Hart said. "But I think as recruiting blows up, Notre Dame didn't have a lot of (slots) left, and always kept him in a very personal relationship.

"I thought Michigan did a fabulous job. Iowa did a terrific job. LSU did a great job. There was a lot of great people involved in the recruiting process. Virginia Tech was phenomenal. But I think it was the idea he might lose the place he wanted to go to the most out of all those great schools, so it was a smart decision on his part."
