Guyton pulls trigger for the Irish

Wide receiver Jalen Guyton of Allen (Texas) High named Notre Dame his leader after his visit to South Bend one week ago. On Sunday afternoon, Guyton decided to make it official and commit.

Notre Dame picked up its second commitment in two days from Texas when three-star wide receiver Jalen Guyton of Allen (Texas) High committed to Notre Dame on Sunday afternoon.

"That visit was beyond great," Guyton said. "I was on an emotional high during it and wanted to commit while I was on campus, but I decided to wait and see if anything changed after a week or two passed. I haven't lost any feelings for Notre Dame, and I want to be part of the family."

. Guyton said he talked it over with those closest to him and then gave Irish assitant Kerry Cooks a call to tell him the good news.

"I talked to my parents and they wanted to make sure that was really where I wanted to go," Guyton said. "After that, they were all for it because they know Notre Dame is a school that can set me up for life if football doesn't work out. I also talked to one of my coaches down here with recruiting experience, and he wanted to make sure I was 100 percent committed even if another school were to offer because he's not big on decommitments. I told him I was all in."

"Coach Cooks said he was really exicted I decided to jump on board," Guyton said. "It was a happy conversation to have. And, I'm going to talk with Coach Kelly in the next couple of days."

Notre Dame picked up a commitment from safety Prentice McKinney of Dallas (Texas) South Oak on Saturday. The Texas duo will have a chance to connect in two weeks at the Blue & Gold game.

"I heard about that commitment," Guyton said. "I've heard of him, but I've never met him. That's cool he's visiting for the spring game, so we'll have a chancee to meet. He's gotta be a baller if he committed to Notre Dame."

Guyton is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 42 wide receiver in the class of 2015. Stay tuned to Irisheyes.com for a commitment breakdown of Notre Dame's newest 2015 pledge.
