Beneventi sees a special fit at Notre Dame
Notre Dame hosted some marquee prospects from the 2015 class on Saturday for its game against Michigan State. One of the headliners was four-star quarterback Jack Beneventi of Lisle (Ill.) Benet Academy. "It was a great visit," Beneventi said. "I met with Coach Marin again and was able to talk with some of the Notre Dame students about the school. Coach Martin and I talked about how the game and how my high school team is doing." Beneventi has visited Notre Dame multiple times, and the Irish have established themselves in very good position with the Illinois signal-caller, though he's not ready to name them his outright leader. "I'm staying open to every school right now," Beneventi said. "I will make a decision sometime between February and June. I like the coaching staff and the academic excellence of Notre Dame. And, how special the football tradition is as well." The 6-foot-6, 185-pound quarterback believes he would be a good fit in Notre Dame's offense. "I'm primarily a passing quarterback that can occasionally run out of the pocket," Beneventi said. "It's been great to see Tommy Rees play in the offense, so I could see how the fit would be with a pocket passer." Beneventi's other major offers include Illinois, Iowa and Louisville. Beneventi is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 5 quarterback in the clas of 2015.
