Irish show interest in ESPN Watch List DL

Melvin Keihn has yet another school to consider.

The Fighting Irish are the latest to show strong interest in the linebacker from Baltmore Gilman.

"Notre Dame is really interested in me," the ESPN Watch List prospect told ESPN via text message.

Keihn has scholarship offers from nearly a dozen schools, most notably Miami (Fla.), Rutgers, Virginia and West Virginia. For now, however, Notre Dame is the focus of Keihn's attention.

"Great academic schools and the program is pretty good ... They are having a good season so far," he stated.
