Blanton is No. 15

Four-star defensive back Robert Blanton became the 15th recruit to commit to Charlie Weis on Wednesday, telling the Notre Dame head coach in person that he is Irish on Wednesday.

Irish Eyes confirmed Robert Blanton's commitment with his mother, and stay tuned for more on this exciting situation.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Blanton chose Notre Dame over Virginia Tech in the end. He had offers from California, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon and several other programs.

As a sophomore at Butler High in Matthews, N.C., Blanton made 123 tackles and intercepted six passes. Last season as a junior he surpassed those numbers by registering 147 tackles and picking off seven passes.

Blanton is in South Bend until Friday.
