Newsome feels at home at Notre Dame
Punter/kicker commit Tyler Newsome of Carrollton (Ga.) High made the trek north on an unofficial visit with his step-dad for Notre Dame's win over BYU last weekend. "The game was a lot of fun," Newsome said. "Especially when Brindza hit the 51-yard field goal. He's a great kicker and he's going to leave a great legacy at Notre Dame. I think it's great that Coach Kelly has confidence in the kickers like that when the game is in doubt." Other commits in town included defensive end Andrew Trumbetti, defensive tackle Jay Hayes, and defensive end Grant Blankenship. "I was able to sit with Andrew Trumbetti, Grant Blankenship and Jay Hayes at the game, and they are both really nice guys," Newsome said. "I met Jhonny Willimas too, the player committed to Missouri with a Notre Dame offer. He was having a great time." Newsome was able to tour some of the facilities on Sunday before he headed home. "I got to see the Gug, which was really cool," Newsome said. "I saw it the first time I was at Notre Dame, but didn't get a complete tour." If Carrollton doesn't reach the state finals on Dec. 13, Newsome is planning on taking his official to Notre Dame that weekend, for the team awards banquet. Last Friday night in Carrollton's 44-27 win over Monroe Area, Newsome was 7-for-7 in PATs and 6-for-6 in touchbacks. He averaged 4.9 seconds hangtime, and his longest punt was 57 yards.
