Hedgemon chooses ND

<P>Tyrone Willingham just left the home of LaBrose Hedgemon with his commitment to attend Notre Dame. Hedgemon is the 18th known commitment to the 2003 class. </P>

"The visit went as good as it can get. I just committed to Coach Willingham. The academics and the chance to get an education from Notre Dame really played a major part. The coaching staff also impressed me and Coach Willingham is a great man. He wants to win the National Championship and I know he is going to get there."

Hedgemon was really sold on his visit to Notre Dame. "That was the icing on the cake. I went there with an open mind but I loved Notre Dame. I fit in well with the players and I felt that Notre Dame was the right place for me.

Hedgemon becomes the 18th known commitment to Notre Dame and Irish fans hope he is the start of a good week for Notre Dame football.
