Kyle Brindza became the third verbal commitment of the 2011 recruiting class today as he gave his verbal commitment. An interesting twist comes with Brindza who is a junior as I write this today but is set to graduate from high school in June. Head coach Brian Kelly said that he will check into the details and see if Brindza would be eligible to play for the Fighting Irish this coming fall.
Brindza is a product of Canton, Michigan and has been a Notre Dame fan his entire life. Last year he hit 7 of 10 field goals while 95% of his kickoffs went for touchbacks.
Brindza also averaged 48.2 yards per punt a season ago, watch a workout video of his below. You most take notice however, there is a strong wind that can be picked up at times if you look at the shorts of those in the video. Welcome to Notre Dame, Kyle Brindza! (Hope to see you this fall...)
