Head football coach Brian Kelly and the Notre Dame football program landed a major building block for the future on Tuesday as Ben Koyack made a verbal commitment to the Fighting Irish.  Koyack is ranked amongst the top tight ends in the country and is currently slated to participate in the Under Armour All-American Game in 2011.

Koyack chose Notre Dame over his other finalist, Ohio State.  Also offering him a scholarship were the traditional powers USC, Oklahoma, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Pitt, and West Virginia among others.

Koyack told Irish Sports Daily:  "After going this weekend, it just felt right...waiting a few days made me realize it even more."

Koyack is a product of Oil City High School in Oil City, Pennsylvania.  He is the eighth player to give a verbal commitment to Brian Kelly and Notre Dame in the 2011 recruiting class and the fourth since the Blue/Gold Game this past Saturday.

From the video below you will see he brings a huge body to the table while having great speed for his size.  Welcome to Notre Dame, Ben Koyack!
