No. 17 is Bernard

Running back Giovanni Bernard obviously had a great visit to Notre Dame a week ago, because the standout athlete from St. Thomas Aquinas High School (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) called the Notre Dame coaches to inform them that he was accepting their scholarship offer.

Notre Dame wanted to land a top running back in this recrutiing class and they did that today as Gio Bernard (5-foot-9, 195-pounds) confirmed through a text message to IrishEyes.com that he indeed had committed to Notre Dame. Bernard becomes the 17th commitment for the 2010 Notre Dame recruiting class.
