Can Notre Dame switch Lazard?

The Irish recently offered Iowa State wide receiver pledge Allen Lazard of Urbandale (Iowa) High. Lazard explains what type of interest he has in the Irish, if he plans to visit Notre Dame, and if he could switch his commitment.

Wide receiver and Iowa State commit Allen Lazard of Urbandale (Iowa) High received an offer from Notre Dame on Friday.

"It feels pretty good to get this offer," Lazard said. "I knew they were interested, but I wasn't expecting them to offer. I have known [Notre Dame safeties] Coach (Bob) Elliot for quite some time since he was at Iowa State. We have stayed in touch since then."

"He likes my size," Lazard said. "He told me they had two of their outside wide receivers transfer, and they are looking to add another guy that can go up and get the ball. I'm a great blocker and I can really beat guys on the outside."

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound wide receiver said it won't be an easy task to sway his commitment from Iowa State.

"I'm pretty solid," Lazard said. "It will have to take something big to decommit."

However, Lazard is interested in Notre Dame, and he has already scheduled a visit to further check things out.

"I like the whole tradition at Notre Dame," Lazard said. "They have started winning a lot more and have gotten back to their old ways. I will be visiting June 10."

Is Notre Dame a school that has a shot of stealing his commitment if decided to make the switch?

"Yeah, you could say that," Lazard said.

Lazard is a four-star prospect and ranked as the No. 15 wide receiver in 2014. He does not have any other visits scheduled.
