2020 TE Lukas Ungar Felt Like He Was "On Sacred Ground" At Notre Dame

June 18, 2018

Lukas Ungar‍ knows all about the tight end tradition at Notre Dame and he’s aware the Irish recently landed a tight end in his class and that’s why the 2020 New Jersey tight end was so excited for his chance to perform in front of the Irish staff at a camp in South Bend on Saturday.

“The camp went very well,” Ungar said. “I am pleased with how I played and that I was able to showcase my abilities in front of the Notre Dame staff.”

The Delabarton School standout feels he presented himself well in front of the coaches.

“I had a very strong combine and I knew I was excelling throughout the day because of all the positive feedback from the coaches,” the 6-foot-4, 215-pounder said.

Ungar felt welcomed by the staff, especially the offensive coordinator/tight ends coach and offensive line coach.

“Coach Chip Long made a point to spend time with me and was very complimentary,” he said. “Coach Jeff Quinn seemed impressed with my blocking technique.”

Ungar was impressed with everything else he saw while in town as well.

“We walked the campus and saw Notre Dame's beautiful and impressive facilities,” he explained. “I now have a better understanding and appreciation for what it means to be part of the Notre Dame family.

“Playing in the stadium was awesome. I felt like I was on sacred ground.”

Ungar, who already has offers from schools like Michigan, Maryland, Syracuse, Rutgers, West Virginia, and North Carolina among others, plans to remain in contact with Notre Dame in the weeks and months to come.

“Moving forward, Coach Long said he will be staying in touch and will visit Delbarton this Fall,” said Ungar.

The Irish landed a commitment from fellow 2020 tight end Kevin Bauman last week, but are still looking for another.

“The 2020 tight end class has a lot of talent and Notre Dame has already benefitted,” Ungar said. “So, I am glad that I was able to promote myself. It is exciting to hear that I am the type of tight end that ND traditionally looks for.”

Ungar has a busy summer ahead with planned visits to many schools, including Stanford, Penn State, Rutgers, Wisconsin and Texas.
