Angeline recaps return visit

Exton (Pa.) Downingtown East four-star tight end Cary Angeline recaps his return visit to Notre Dame, which included one-on-one time with both head coach Brian Kelly and tight ends coach Scott Booker.

In Notre Dame for the Blue-Gold game Saturday was top Irish tight end target Cary Angeline of Exton (Pa.) Downingtown East.

Angeline’s mother and sister accompanied him on the visit.

“This time I got to bring my mom because my dad came with me last time, and she really liked it,” Angeline said. “After the game, we were able to sit down with Coach (Brian) Kelly, and she was able to ask him questions about being a student-athlete at Notre Dame because she knows that it’s like a full-time job.”

Angeline and his mother and sister arrived in South Bend late Friday night. On Saturday, they first met with the academic support staff.

“I had met the academic people on my first visit, but my mom got to talk to them this time,” Angeline said. “They were really helpful and explained everything about how they help you balance school and football.”

Next, the 6-foot-7, 230-pound tight end met with Irish tight ends coach Scott Booker.

“Coach Booker showed me film of Tyler Eifert,” Angeline said. “He wants to use me in the ‘12’ personnel package when they have two tight ends out there.  Notre Dame is going to do that quite a lot this year. He thinks he can line me up inside to block or outside to run routes.”

Following his meeting with Booker, Angeline took in the Blue-Gold game at LaBar practice fields.

“It was cool to see the environment with fans around,” Angeline said. “I know it wasn’t in their stadium, but it was still nice to see, and it was a good game to watch.”

After two unofficial visits to Notre Dame this spring, the Irish have positioned themselves as a front-runner in Angeline’s recruitment.

“Notre Dame is obviously a great academic school,” Angeline said. “That, and they have a great history of using tight ends. There’s a lot of success there.”

Angeline currently does not have any future visits lined up.

Angeline is a four-star tight end and is ranked as the No.  13 tight end in the Class of 2016.
