Wezensky building relationships at Notre Dame

Quarterback Noah Wezensky of Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bishop Luers may be just a sophomore, but he's on Notre Dame's radar and will be visiting the Irish in back-to-back weeks.

Sophomore quarterback Noah Wezensky, who camped with the Irish this summer, made the short trip from Fort Wayne, Indiana to visit Notre Dame for its win over Michigan State.

"It was an unbelievable atmosphere," Wezensky said. "It was a great game to watch and my mom and I really enjoyed everything about it."

Despite having a mom that went to Michigan State, Wezensky said it was easy to get caught up in the spirit of Notre Dame's fans.

"This was my first Notre Dame game," Wezensky said. "Everything is a little different at Notre Dame. It was awesome."

"I was able to talk with Coach Martin for a while," Wezensky said. "He told me to keep doing what I'm doing on the field and he likes my film so far this season. He's also excited to have me back next summer at camp."

Wezensky will be back at Notre Dame this weekend for its game against Oklahoma. He'll be joined by a few teammates, including sophomore wide receiver Austin Mack.

"What is standing out about Notre Dame right now is their interest in me," Wezensky said. "They are one of the most prestigious schools in the nation, and that draws you in. Academics, athletics, everything about Notre Dame is at the top."

Wezensky has trips planned to Michigan State and Cincinnati as well.

After hurting his knee in game two and again in game four this season, Wezensky will start this Friday night vs. Concordia Lutheran. Last season, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound quarterback threw for 702 yards and four touchdowns in five starts.
