Early Commit: LB Matthew Bauer to Notre Dame

Notre Dame is carrying quite a bit of momentum on the trail. Not only are the Fighting Irish among the top 10 ranked classes in 2017, but the start to the 2018 class could be even better based on the early returns. With four ESPN Junior 300 verbals already in the fold, Brian Kelly and his staff added a fifth on Wednesday picking up one of the top prospects in the Keystone State, linebacker Matthew Bauer.
