BREAKING | Notre Dame Lands Commitment from 2022 QB Steve Angeli

March 4, 2021

Notre Dame has its man at quarterback as 2022 Bergen Catholic (N.J.) signal-caller Steve Angeli‍ has committed to the Fighting Irish. 

The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder is the ideal fit for Notre Dame and made his pledge to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tommy Rees on Wednesday night. 

"Ever since the dead period got pushed back, I've kind of been talking about it for a month with my family and really zoning in to figure out if Notre Dame was the spot for me," Angeli told ISD. "I spoke with my coaches and then my head coach talked to Coach Rees three times yesterday.

"Coach Rees gave me a call last night and I told him I wanted to commit to Notre Dame. He was awesome and it was a great moment. I'm really excited." 

Angeli was the first quarterback offered by Rees on August 17th and it was because of his talent, but also everything else that goes into playing the position at a school like Notre Dame. 

"Coach was super excited," Angeli stated. "He said he was so happy for me. I was the first guy they offered and he always came back to my intangibles and he didn't see that in anyone else - the way I act, my hardworking style and he told me not to change and to keep working hard. He said he couldn't be more excited to have me."

The two have built a strong connection over the last six months and the four-star prospect knew right away Rees was someone he could trust.

"My first phone call with Coach Rees, I kind of felt something I hadn't felt with any other coach," explained Angeli. "He's a straight shooter and a tough guy. He's going to coach me to the max. He's going to do everything he can to develop me, reach my goals and win National Championships." 

Angeli is commitment No. 8 for Brian Kelly's 2022 recruiting class and he looks forward stepping up to recruit other top prospects to Notre Dame in the coming months.

"I want to be able to be the outreach for guys that want to learn more about Notre Dame or thinking about committing and want to join the football team or be part of everything Notre Dame is about from a University standpoint," said Angeli.  

"I'm going to do my best bring my teammates at Bergen Catholic with me now and all the New jersey guys I can get and especially my Midwest guys with BOOM. I want to be there for everybody that's thinking about  Notre Dame or highly considering them. I want to do my best to bring the best guys with me." 

ISD: 92 (four-star)
247: 88 (three-star)
Rivals: 5.8 (four-star)
