Football recruiting was a bright spot for Notre Dame this week as the Irish received a commitment from 2021 Mansfield (Texas) defensive David Abiara‍.

Some questioned how he could only be rated a three-star prospect as his offer list reflects a big-time recruit. 

It's simple. Right now, Abiara is a ball of clay and Mike Elston won the opportunity to mold him. It was a significant pull for Notre Dame as Abiara's coach played for Oklahoma and he had visited Norman. 

It's hard not to see Abiara's athleticism, length and ability to get to the football when you watch his highlights.
