2024 LB Bodie Kahoun Returns to Notre Dame

April 27, 2023

2024 Patrick Henry (Va.) linebacker Bodie Kahoun‍ got a look at Notre Dame in March and then returned last weekend for the Blue-Gold Game. 

The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder got an in-depth look at the program during his first visit and his latest trip didn’t disappoint. 

“No surprises,” Kahoun told ISD. “The visit confirmed everything we experienced last time.” 

The main difference on this trip was the Kahoun was able to see a bit more competitive atmosphere as his first visit was on the first day of spring practice. 

“I got to see the Blue and Gold Game and see players compete,” stated Kahoun when asked how this trip was different. 

Kahoun was able to get time around the Notre Dame lacrosse program and the football staff. Head coach Marcus Freeman led the charge and the message has been consistent to the two-sport star.

“They have done a good job of developing a personal relationship,” explained Kahoun. “Their message is that I am a good fit for them as a student-athlete and their locker room and can make an impact.” 

The second trip was also by design. It’s not a surprise Notre Dame is a major contender as the Irish have competitive athletics and academics, but the main focus of this trip was to build a rapport with the staff. 

“It’s part of the process,” Kahoun explained. “If our first visits go well we make a point to get back to keep building relationships.” 

Kahoun’s next step will be to figure out which schools will host him for official visits and after two visits, it certainly seems as if Notre Dame is in strong contention to receive a third visit from the Virginia native. 

“The next step is to set dates for official visits,” said Kahoun. “Definitely want to be committed by end of summer and be focused going into next season.”
