Posluszny Hangs With Future Teammates

Leaving Notre Dame Stadium Saturday night following the Irish's 28-7 victory over Duke, David Posluszny could barely keep up with host Pat Kuntz. The injured junior nose tackle was zooming around on a motorized cart having a ball, leaving the 6-foot-2, 213-pound Aliquippa, Pa., product chasing behind.

"It was fun," David Posluszny said. The verbally committed linebacker has been on Notre Dame's campus five or six times already, and took in his second game of the season over the weekend, using up his official visit. " Pat's a funny kid so it was a good time hanging out with him. It was funny leaving going back to his dorm."

Posluszny had two different hosts, staying with freshman linebacker Steve Paskorz on Friday. Already having seen everything the campus has to offer, Posluszny spent the majority of the time just trying to better get to know his future teammates. He and his parents also had private meetings with head coach Charlie Weis (for about 25 minutes), defensive coordinator Corwin Brown and inside linebackers coach Brian Polian.

"I'm just glad I went," Posluszny said. "It was nice to go out with my future teammates and meet everyone. Everyone was real cool so it was fun to hang out with the guys."

After hanging with Kuntz back at his dorm, Posluszny caught up with future classmates Kyle Rudolph, Lane Clelland, Braxston Cave, Michael Golic Jr., and recruit Gerell Robinson, whom were all in town as well.

"He seemed like he really liked it," Posluszny said of Robinson, the four-star receiver from Arizona.

Posluszny also said it was a good weekend to go with the Irish (2-9) getting a victory.

Hopewell High finished the season 4-5, after beginning the year 3-0 and climbing to No. 2 in the state. Posluszny missed three games, all losses, with a concussion. Losing the jack-of-all-trades was obviously a huge loss for Hopewell.

"I was going both ways and playing on every special teams," Posluszny said. He lost a good 10 pounds over the course of the season. "During the work week running all over the place in practice, and then on Friday night it was tough being on the field the whole game."

Since the season ended a couple weeks ago, Posluszny has regained four or five pounds. As of right now, the Notre Dame coaches have not given him a weight they want him to report to school at.

This trip was Posluszny's last to campus before he is officially a Notre Dame football player.
