"I don't have much time because I'm in school right now," said Patrick Kuntz when he returned our call about his commitment. "Yes I did commit to Notre Dame today."
We asked Kuntz why he chose the Irish over Michigan State and Louisville.
"It just felt like the right place for me," he said. "I grew up cheering for Notre Dame, and it felt like the right place for me."
Kuntz became the 12th-known verbal commitment to Notre Dame in this 2004-05 recruiting season.
