Notre Dame Football Recruiting: First 2014 Commit Gives Irish Dominant LB Future
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish may be looking to become the new "Linebacker U" of college football, and with their first verbal commit of the class of 2014 they are well on their way to doing just that.
According to Steve Wiltfong of 247sports, linebacker Greer Martini out of Woodberry Forest Virginia wants to play for the Irish:
Woodberry (Va.) Forest 2014 linebacker Greer Martini confirms with 247Sports that he committed to Notre Dame on Monday.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Martini earned an offer from the Irish last week at Notre Dame's camp.
"I came back home and talked to my parents and we couldn't think of a better place to be than Notre Dame," Martini said. "With the combination of academics and athletics, I figured I should commit now and my heart is set on it."
It's tough to look at what Brian Kelly and the Irish have done with their 2013 class and not be impressed, even at just the linebacker position.
The biggest commit the Irish have secured thus far is undoubtedly outside linebacker Jaylon Smith, who is the No. 1 rated outside linebacker and No. 4 overall player according to Rivals. He has a great combination of athleticism, speed off the edge and coverage skills that will make him a defensive force for Notre Dame.

They also got another great 2013 commit in Rivals' 3-star inside linebacker Michael Deeb, who should only improve with coaching and will greatly benefit from playing with Smith.
With those two alone, the linebacker play of the future seems to be bright for Notre Dame, and now with Martini, who appears to be a playmaker, coming aboard on the 2014 class, it only stands to get better.
If the Irish can continue recruiting great linebackers, the future of the position will be incredibly bright.
As it stands right now, bright is an understatement.
Let's try dominant.
