Daelin Hayes, a highly prized linebacker from Skyline High School in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has committed to Notre Dame.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Hayes made his decision partly for the college's rigorous academics. "Once I officially took football out of the equation, it seemed like a no-brainer. I believe to make a decision based purely off of athletics is kind is foolish. Why not maximize every opportunity on and off the field that college presents?" he said.
If his game is as good as the hype stirred in his so-called "Dark Knight" announcement video posted Thursday on Bleacher Report, the Fighting Irish and their fans have a reason to celebrate.
