Notre Dame's No. 10 class is official

11/14/2012

The University of Notre Dame announced its 2013 recruiting class on Wednesday.

Signing letters of intent with the Fighting Irish were a trio of ESPN 100 prospects: PG Demetrius Jackson (Mishawaka, Ind./Marian), SG Steve Vasturia (Medford, N.J./St. Joseph's Prep) and SF V.J. Beachem (New Haven, Ind./New Haven) along with PF Austin Torres (Mishawaka, Ind./Penn).

"We felt that we needed to strengthen our perimeter game with this year's class and I really think that we accomplished that," head coach Mike Brey said. "Our current guards, [Eric] Atkins and [Jerian] Grant, believe it or not, are getting older. We feel we accomplished our needs with the three players we added [Beachem, Jackson and Vasturia] and then strengthened our frontline with a young man [Torres] who is an active player around the basket. This is a heck of a class for us and it keeps our perimeter strength in great shape for years to come."
