Notre Dame picked up commitment No. 16 on Friday as four-star inside linebacker Michael Deeb (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage) gave his pledge to the Fighting Irish. The 6-foot-2, 238-pound prospect chose Notre Dame after camping in South Bend over the weekend.

American Heritage coach Jeff Dellenbach said a lot that went in to Deeb's decision to choose Notre Dame.

"He went up there and had a great experience. I think he saw it as a great opportunity as far as academics, high-caliber football and obviously the spiritual side," Dellenbach said. "That part of Notre Dame is very impressive. He just see's it as a real good fit for himself, and I don't think anyone could argue with that. He's very excited."
Notre Dame Uneven, Still Gets The Win
Notre Dame wasn't at its best on Saturday night, but it was still good enough to beat in-state rival Purdue in Indianapolis.
