Broghammer Picks ND

Minnetonka, Minn. forward Mike Broghammer became Notre Dame's third verbal commitment of the 2009 season when he committed earlier today to Irish basketball coach Mike Brey on his official visit.

Mike Broghammer said Notre Dame just felt like the right place for him when asked about his commitment to Notre Dame.

"I really liked the players, and I really liked the coaching staff," Broghammer said. "I loved the campus, and it just felt right to me."

Broghammer, who plans to enroll in summer school, also plans to visit Notre Dame this January.

The 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward is the nephew of former Duke standout Christian Laettner, and the Hopkins senior high star averaged around 12 points and nine boards per game last season. Top Stories
