Folston, the nation’s No. 9 athlete, announced his decision today after Under Armour All-America Game practice at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports. The four-star prospect said the Fighting Irish fan base was a big reason he chose Notre Dame.

“I went on a visit there and when I went there I just felt like I could do this for four years,” Folston said. “The coaches were great, the players were great. There was a lot of energy around there, and there is a lot of people wanting to get the same goal to get to the BCS championship. They are on their way now. We are going to pull this thing out.”
