The move to the ACC for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish is nothing but positive on the basketball recruiting front. Not to mention, it’s a return home for coach Mike Brey and assistants Anthony Solomon and Rod Balanis. Brey was an assistant at Duke and helped land Danny Ferry, Solomon played for Virginia, and Balanis played at Georgia Tech.

The ACC is an expansive league that stretches from New England to South Beach. Now it’s branched out into the Midwest, and Notre Dame will be the lone ACC program in that neck of the woods. Two hours from Chicago and now playing on the campuses of North Carolina and Duke, membership has its privileges.
