Irish Eyes just received an e-mail from the mother of Akron, Ohio defensive end Lawrence Wilson confirming his commitment to Notre Dame.
"Just wanted to let you know, it's official. Lawrence gave a verbal commitment to Notre Dame tonight," said Sarah Wilson. "He let coach Willingham know just a couple of hours ago. We are VERY happy and excited."
Wilson becomes the 10th known verbal commitment to Notre Dame. It was late by the time we received the confirmation so we didn't follow up with a phone call. We will call in the morning to get a reaction from Lawrence on the commitment.
