Hounshell, while excited about the Irish interest knows only time will tell if he's to be given a scholarship.
"Coach (Ed) Warinner is the coach recruiting me and I'm planning on going to their one-day camp on June 29th."
While Hounshell is listed as a defensive end, he said the Irish are looking at him at a different position.
"Notre Dame is recruiting me as an offensive tackle."
When an offer comes from the Irish, Chase knows he might have to push up his timetable in making a commitment.
"My goal is to try and make a commitment prior to my senior year and to play my senior season without any worries on the college front. That is my plan, but I don't know if it's going to happen that way."
Whatever the outcome, Chase knows if he has a good showing the Irish could be a program he'd be ready to make a pledge to.
Scout.com will continue to follow Chase in the coming weeks to see if he makes the trip to South Bend.
