Tiassum builds relationship with Elston
One of the noteworthy prospects Notre Dame hosted for junior day was in-state three-star defensive tackle Brandon Tiassum of Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor. "It went great," Tiassum said. "We got there around 11 a.m., and we got a tour of campus, then we sat in on position group meetings, got a tour of the facilities and talked more with the coaches." It was Tiassum's first time taking in Notre Dame's campus. He was accompanied by his grandfather and brother on the trip. "Campus was beautiful," Tiassum said. "There was a lot of religious artwork, and that really caught my eye. Touchdown Jesus is just awesome." Tiassum said one of the highlights of the visit was talking one-on-one with Irish defensive line coach Mike Elston. "Coach Elston told me that he could see me at Notre Dame," Tiassum said. "With the new 4-3 defense, I would fit in well. He said he can see me playing the three-technique or the one-technique. He wants me to come back to camp this summer for an in-person evaluation by the staff, and if I do well, I can likely earn an offer." Tiassum plans to camp at Notre Dame this summer in hopes of earning that offer. "Notre Dame is a great school," Tiassum said. "Even if football doesn't work out, you have a great degree and connections. It's like a lifelong brotherhood." Tiassum holds an offer from Indiana, and Boston College could be next to offer. Tiassum plans to visit Tennessee within the next couple of weeks and potentially Northern Illinois. For his spring break, he plans to visit Boston College during the first week of April.
