Posluszny Receives Irish Offer

Notre Dame didn't issue many scholarship offers during the junior day held on Saturday, but one player that did receive an offer was Dave Posluszny of Hopewell High School (Aliquippa, Pa.) Posluszny didn't have many expectations heading into the weekend, but he certainly was happy with how everything played out.

Notre Dame needs to sign top defensive talent in order to help new defensive coordinator, Corwin Brown, solidify the defense. One player the Irish have targeted for the 2008 recruiting class is linebacker David Posluszny (6-2, 200 pounds)

"It went really... and they offered me," Posluszny responded when asked about his junior day visit. "We got there, and coach Latina net with us. He introduced us to the new linebackers coach (coach Polian). My family and I met with him and he asked us a few questions. Then all the recruits gathered together for a presentation.

"I learned a lot more about the academics side of the school and I also got to see more of the facilities. I really liked everything. I was really impressed with everything that they have to offer.

"After that coach Weis pulled us aside, we talked for about 15 minutes and he offered me a scholarship," Posluszny said. ""He said I fit the mold to play at Notre Dame. He feels I'm the type of player that can play weak-inside linebacker."

This was Posluszny's fourth trip to Notre Dame and he now adds the Irish to his list of offers; With West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Louisville and Wisconsin.

"After he gave me the offer, coach Weis said that he really wanted me to go there and that he was going to hold a spot for me," Dave explained. " He told me to take all the time I needed to make a decision. He wants me to be sure and to take things slow and to be patient.

"I just feel fortunate for a school with the prestige of Notre Dame to be so interested in me. I'm just really grateful. Notre Dame is obviously a very good school and I am interested in them. Right now I'm going to let things sink in and go from here."
