Number 7

Notre Dame got their 7th verbal commitment today when Luke Schmidt of Jasper, Indiana, announced today that he will attend Notre Dame. Schmidt is regarded as one of the top fullbacks in the country and is drawing comparisons to Mike Alstott. Notre Dame beat out Oklahoma, Purdue and Louisville for Schmidt. This is yet another great pickup for the Irish. The Notre Dame fullback depth consists of Rashon Powers-Neal and um, um, um, well you get the picture. Assuming Schmidt does not get hurt, he could very easily get significant playing time as a freshman.
