He's here at last.

The Voodoo Child himself, Andrew Hendrix, picked Notre Dame as his college choice this morning after talking things over with his parents. Hendrix becomes Notre Dame's sixth commitment in the class of 2010.

A little background on the prospect himself:

Andrew Hendrix—QB, Moeller HS, Cincinnati, OH (yes, same school as Gerry Faust),
6'3'', 220 Lbs.—4-star recruit according to Rivals, 3 stars per Scout.

A few people have tried to compare him to Brady Quinn in articles and on some of these "oh-so-genius" Notre Dame message boards.

Guess what?

Just because he is a white quarterback from Ohio does not mean he is Brady by any means so get over that idea. The only similarity is the spread styles of offense they both ran in high school.

Hendrix comes from a pistol offense which requires a lot of moving outside of the pocket and running the ball himself or throwing on the run. He seems to do it particularly well.

So there he is.

Commit No. 6 of the class of 2010 is quarterback Andrew Hendrix.
