Carmody, Other Commits Coming To Notre Dame

September 8, 2017

Robby Carmody’s last visit to Notre Dame was an eventful one as the 2018 Pennsylvania shooting guard offered Mike Brey and the Irish men’s basketball program his verbal commitment before leaving.

Carmody will be back in South Bend this weekend, this time on an unofficial visit.

“I just want to get to meet some of the other guys who have committed in my class,” said Carmody, who will be joined in South Bend this weekend by fellow commits Prentiss Hubb and Dane Goodwin.

“We’ve talked a little bit. I love them. I think it’s going to be great to get to know them over the course of a couple years. I think we can win a lot of games together.”

Carmody and the other visitors will also take in the Notre Dame football squad’s primetime showdown with Georgia on Saturday and get a chance to run on the court with the current members of the Irish hoops team.

“I’m excited to get out for a game and maybe play a little pickup,” said Carmody. “I just try to see how I fit into the system and how I stack up against the guys they have there right now.”

The trio of Irish pledges will also be joined in South Bend by 2018 Massachusetts power forward prospect Nate Laszewski. Carmody said he’s had some initial conversations with Laszewski.

“A little bit, just letting him know if he has any questions, he can ask me anything,” Carmody explained. “I’m just trying to build a relationship and hopefully that helps a little bit with getting him here.”

Carmody got a chance to see Laszewski a bit on the summer circuit.

“I saw him play a couple of times,” said Carmody. “He’s tremendous. He would be a huge addition for us. He kind of plays like a guard, but he’s 6-10. There aren’t a lot of guys like that in the country.”

The recruiting of Laszewski could ramp up a bit this weekend.

“Maybe a little bit with all three of us there,” Carmody chuckled. “We might try to get on him a little bit.”

Carmody knows what his pitch will be.

“It’s a place that people who play like him thrive. He can run up and down the floor, make shots and make plays with the ball. In a situation like Notre Dame, he’s going to have a lot of shots and have the ball a lot. I think it’s something he would love.”
