Irish offer three-star Dade linebacker
Notre Dame dipped into South Florida on Tuesday in order to offer three-star linebacker Dominic Sheppard of Miami (Fla.) Gulliver. "Yesterday, my coach told me that Coach Alford of Notre Dame offered me," Sheppard said. "I haven't talked with him yet, but I'm going to set that up. I don't know too much about Notre Dame at this point. I know they put players in the league and that Manti Te'o played there." "I'd like to learn more," Sheppard added. "I'm not even sure where they want me to play, whether it's inside or outside linebacker." Sheppard plans on taking official visits, and Notre Dame could be in a good position to receive one this fall. "I may take an official visit to Notre Dame," Sheppard said. "I'm taking a lot of unofficial visits. I've seen Florida, Florida State and Miami, and I'm probably going to see LSU and Texas A&M play this spring and summer. So, Notre Dame might get an official visit." Sheppard maintains that he doesn't have any favorites at this point, though he says Alabama is recruiting him the hardest. "I'm looking at playing time, player development and education," Sheppard said. "I want to major in engineering." "I don't have a lot of interceptions on my stat sheet, but I make a lot of tackles," Sheppard said. "I had 90 tackles and one interception return for a touchdown last season."
