Berry takes in Notre Dame

Notre Dame hosted a promising sophomore recently, athlete Justin Berry of Wheaton (Ill.) St. Francis.

Only a sophomore, dual-threat quarterback/athlete Justin Berry of Wheaton (Ill.) St. Francis already claims four offers, with his most notable one being from Arizona State. Berry visited Notre Dame a couple weekends ago for the Irish's contest against BYU.

"It was my first time going to Notre Dame, and I had a really good time," Berry said. "My dad and I arrived on Saturday morning and got to experience a full day there."

Berry has also visited Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin this season, and he's receiving interest from most Big Ten programs.

"The atmosphere was amazing," Berry said. "I've visited a few schools already, but Notre Dame definitely stuck out from a lot of them. They're different in a good way. The walk before the game was awesome, and it just shows how much tradition Notre Dame has. It was cool just watching the fans go crazy."

"Everything Notre Dame did was very professional," Berry said. "They treated us very well, and I think we sat in the third row for the game. I think the facilities beat out any other school I've been to."

At 6-foot, 180-pounds, Berry is likely to be on the of the top quarterbacks in the Midwest in the 2016 recruiting cycle.

Berry said Notre Dame is recruiting him primarily as an athlete.

"I like quarterback, but I'm excited to play at any position in college," Berry said.

Berry plans on returning to Notre Dame this spring.

"The coaches want me back up there soon," Berry said. "They want to keep building a relationship with me, which is cool."
