Kameron Allen‍ may have arrived in South Bend still looking for his first major offer, but the Notre Dame staff certainly knew who the 2021 Texas tight end/receiver was when he showed up for the Irish’s Elite Skills Camp on Saturday.

The 6-foot-5, 190-pounder had a chance to look around the school on Friday before performing in the event on Saturday.

“It went really good actually,” the Poteet High School standout said of the trip. “They took us on a tour of the campus and it was really good. Everything was beautiful.

“I just like everything about Notre Dame. What really put me on to Notre Dame was the movie ‘Rudy’ actually. Just seeing everything Notre Dame does really made me want to come out there. I asked my parents if I could come out to the camp and that’s how it went.”

One campus landmark in particular left an impression.

“The Basilica really caught my attention,” he said.

The Mesquite, Texas native felt he performed well during the camp on Saturday.

“I did pretty good,” he said. “I could have caught a few more balls, but I did good.

“I talked to a lot of the coaches, they all came up to me before the camp started, about five or six coaches. They were just introducing me to everybody and letting it be known that they knew who I was and stuff like that.”

Allen was encouraged that the coaches approached him before the workout.

“It felt good just to know somebody else knows the work I’ve put it and seeing the work I put in,” he said.

Allen saod he’s also been hearing from Texas, SMU, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech with plans to camp at TCU and Oklahoma State.

He isn’t sure what’s next for him and the Irish.

“I don’t know,” he said. “It depends on how my recruiting process goes. I like Notre Dame, they have a very nice facility and a very nice campus.”

If Notre Dame does ramp up the interest, he said he would like to return “for sure.”
