Notre Dame was hoping to make a strong impression on Brennen Beyer (6-foot-4, 215-pounds) during his junior day visit and it appears that they did.
"The junior day went well," Beyer said. "I got to talk to Coach Diaco and coach Cooks right at the beginning. They explained the defense and how I'd fit in, so that was really nice. Then I got to talk to coach Kelly a little later too.
"Overall I felt really comfortable, I didn't get a ton of time with the coaches, but the time I did was good. They definitely have their minds set on winning a national championship."
The only thing Beyer didn't get from his junior day visit was enough one-on-one time with the Notre Dame coaching staff. On Wednesday, he plans to make a return trip to Notre Dame in order to spend more time with the coaches.
"I'm going down to a practice tomorrow," Beyer explained. "I want to see how the coaches coach. I think it will be really helpful seeing them coach the team and getting a chance to see how practices are run.
"They explained it in really good detail though, so I have a pretty good idea. They said that they'd have me meet with a couple players so that I could ask them questions and stuff."
