Running back Isaiah Gardner (5'11 1/2, 190, 4.5) of Virginia Beach Salem, Virginia committed to Notre Dame yesterday.
Gardner rushed for a little over 1,100 yards rushing and he had 330 yards receiving as well a year ago. Gardner also rushed for close to a 1,000 yards as a sophomore.
"I was just swept away with the Notre Dame tradition and atmosphere," said Gardner. "I think Coach Willingham is taking the program in the right direction and I feel their offense can take advantage of my skills."
Gardner chose Notre Dame over Tennessee, Oklahoma, Michigan State, Ohio State and Georgia Tech, who had all offered.
