Tranquill flips commitment to Notre Dame
After being offered by Notre Dame on Aug. 2, 2013, safety/linebacker Drue Tranquill of Fort Wayne (Ind.) Carroll knew things were about to get complicated. Tranquill had committed to Purdue less than two weeks prior to receiving the Irish offer. He visited both schools multiple times within that time span, and decided to make his final decision once his high school team was eliminated from the playoffs. On Tuesday night, Tranquill opted to notify both coaching staffs of his decision. "Man, this was the hardest decision I've made in my life, so much respect for both programs!" Tranquill said. "I've decided to play my next four years at the University of Notre Dame! I have so much respect for Coach Hazell, I've never met someone with such high character. However, I'm ecstatic to play for Coach Kelly at the University of Notre Dame!" Stay tuned to Irisheyes.com for more from Tranquill on his decision. Scout.com ranks Tranquill as a four-star and as the No. 23 outside linebacker in the class of 2014.
