Rochell makes his pick
Isaac Rochell has helped carry the Notre Dame recruiting momentum into summer.
The four-star defensive end from McDonough, Ga., visited campus for the second time earlier this week and returned home with the Irish still in the lead but with intent to keep his recruitment open into official visit season.
All that changed Thursday morning when his commitment became public. Rochell is commitment No. 14 for head coach Brian Kelly and his staff in the Class of 2013.
"I knew it was nice but I was kind of blown away. Everything about it was perfect," Rochell told IrishIllustrated.com after his first visit in April. "It's going to be kind of weird to go to visit another school and compare it to Notre Dame. It's so prestigious and the football program has so much history.
