2023 QB Drew Viotto Impressed With Notre Dame Stop

September 23, 2021

Drew Viotto‍ got a chance to experience Notre Dame last weekend and the 2023 Michigan quarterback is glad he did.

“It was a really cool place to see in person,” Viotto said. “I hear about it all the time on TV and watching games on TV. It was really a special place to watch a game from. It's a very memorable place that I will never forget.”

The Walled Lake Western standout currently has offers from Syracuse, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan and Bowling Green.

“It's a pretty great feeling,” the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder said. “I got all those offers before I even played varsity, so I'm just blessed with what have now and I'm just going to keep working for more.”

He had the chance to tour the athletic facilities while in South Bend.

“I got to see the indoor facility,” Viotto said. “We walked through The Gug, where they keep all the Heismans. We got to see all the Heisman Trophies, the weight room. I got to see the locker room and obviously the stadium. I got to walk on the field, which was pretty cool.

“I also got to see the Play Like A Champion Today sign, which a lot of NFL players and Hall of Famers have touched, so that was pretty cool.”

He was impressed with the game and the atmosphere inside Notre Dame Stadium for the Irish’s win over Purdue.

“It was a great atmosphere,” he said. “I thought it was a great game. I thought Purdue actually played a very good game, same as Notre Dame. It was close, but then Notre Dame pulled away in the end. I thought it was a very good game and the atmosphere was pretty surreal.”

Viotto liked what he saw from Notre Dame’s offense.

“They've got a pretty balanced attack,” he said. “They've got some good receivers and a really good run game. I like their running back a lot, Kyren Williams. They've got some really good receivers. I like Jack Coan, he plays similar to me. I also saw that a couple of their quarterbacks were like my size, so it was pretty cool. I liked the offense.”

While in town, he had the chance to speak with Notre Dame quarterbacks coach/offensive coordinator Tommy Rees.

“He was asking how things have been going with the season and just asking how I'm doing,” Viotto said. “He's a really cool person. It was good to actually meet him in person and talk to him. He's just a really cool, down to earth person.

“I'm going to keep in touch by sending out my film weekly to them and just keep building a relationship with them.”
