Todd "Excited" by Irish Offer

Notre Dame offered La Mirada (Calif.) High receiver Dallis Todd today, and a trip to the South Bend, Ind., is in the makings.

A month ago, Notre Dame assistant coach Mike Denbrock told La Mirada High (Norwalk, Calif.) coach Mike Moschetti that receiver Dallis Todd was closing in on an offer.

That day turned out to be Thursday.

After the Irish lost Davonte Neal and Justin Ferguson transfer this spring, it opened another spot for wide receivers in the class, and the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Todd became a target again.

"Their recruiting board changed with two receivers leaving the program," Moschetti said. "And like Denbrock explained today, he knew he was eventually going to offer Dallis."

Todd holds a bevy of offers, with much of the Pac-12 extending ones as well as the likes of Miami, Florida, Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Ole Miss.

The one from Notre Dame means Todd will visit campus, but when remains in question.

"Dallis is humbled," Moschetti said. "He wants to get out there as soon as he can and meet with the academic (people) of Notre Dame, and meet the players. We're going to try and see if we can make that happen, possibly on an unofficial this summer, an definitely on an official in the fall."

As a junior, he caught 72 passes for 1,041 yards and 10 touchdowns, and he it quickly caught the eye of a number of programs.

"His upside is amazing," Moschetti said. "He's only played two years of football. When I first got him, he never lifted a weight before. Now, when we're showing the incoming kids how to lift weights, he's the one showing them. He's a very humble kid. He does not have an ego."

La Mirada is on spring break this week, but it didn't take Todd long to learn the Irish offered.

"I called Dallis real quick and he's really, really excited," Moschetti said. "Notre Dame playing for the national championship this year, and the coaching staff has done an amazing job, coach (Brian) Kelly was already on our campus. (Assistant) coach (Scott) Booker has been on our campus and coach Denbrock has been on our campus, so Notre Dame has had a big impact and left a very big impression not only on our kids, but our administration, our teachers and our coaching staff.

"When you think about college football, Notre Dame is one of the first schools you think about. Their tradition, their academics, their fan support is second to none." Top Stories
