2022 S Kyle Johnson Enjoys "Electric" Atmosphere At Notre Dame

November 6, 2019

Kyle Johnson‍ got a good look at what a big-time college football program – specifically Notre Dame – is like during a trip to South Bend for the Irish’s home game against Virginia Tech this past weekend.

“The visit was a great experience for me see the facility, campus and athletic department so I can know what to expect as I go on to college,” the 2022 Michigan safety said afterward.

“I got to see Touchdown Jesus and I got to see the athletic facilities and locker room. I got to see players Nana Osafo-Mensah, Jack Kiser and Kyren Williams. I got to see what my weight and height were. I also received a neat tour from Alexis.”

The West Bloomfield High School standout particularly enjoyed the campus.

“It's very big and it's very unique,” the 6-foot-1, 190-pound sophomore said. “I also loved Touchdown Jesus and the Irish fan base. The weight room was state of the art and really big.”

He also enjoyed the atmosphere inside Notre Dame Stadium for the 21-20 win over the Hokies and the game itself.

“It was electric, I was excited hearing the ND fight song and all the Irish fans going crazy,” Johnson said. “It was a very exciting game and I'm glad the Irish pulled it out.”

While on campus, he was able to speak with Notre Dame safeties coach Terry Joseph.

“He said he was looking forward to seeing me again and I told him I will see him this summer at the ND camp,” said Johnson. “He said he knows my head coach, Coach Ron Bellamy very well. They were actually high school teammates. They’re both originally from New Orleans.”

Johnson is looking forward to returning to South Bend and keeping in touch with the coaching staff.

“I love ND the environment the campus and the atmosphere was amazing,” he said. “I was really impressed!”

“I would like to know more about the educational part of the school, in particular the Engineering program. I would also like to know about some of the activities the students are involved in.”

Johnson is planning stops at Western Michigan, Kentucky, Pittsburgh and Ohio State among others in the coming months.
