Notre Dame landed its first commitment Saturday for the class of 2015, one day after picking up its 12th pledge for the class of 2014.
Six-foot-seven, 312-pound offensive tackle Jerry Tillery (Shreveport, La./Evangel Christian) became the latest big-time line prospect to commit to the Irish, picking the program during a visit Saturday over offers from Arkansas, Ole Miss, Stanford and others.
"I’m done with the recruiting process. I’m committed to Notre Dame,” Tiller told ESPN's Jared Shanker. “There’s a stark difference between Notre Dame and any SEC school, because ND attracts pretty adept people to come to their university, as opposed to where I’ve been. I think there will be more people like me at Notre Dame. That’s why I chose Notre Dame.”
On Friday, class of 2014 punter Tyler Newsome (Carrollton, Ga./Carrollton) committed to Notre Dame.
