Notre Dame Football Recruiting

2021 TE Cane Berrong Has Serious Interest In Notre Dame

January 25, 2019

There’s no way to know for sure, but Cane Berrong‍ thinks he might have been the first person to sign up for Notre Dame’s Elite Skills Camp on June 9th.

Either way, the 2021 Georgia tight end hopes the Irish see his eagerness as interest because that’s what it is.

“It’s a very prestigious school,” said the 6-foot-4, 220-pound sophomore. “I’ve been compared to Tyler Eifert a lot. My favorite football movie is ‘Rudy.’ I just love the school and what they do with the tight ends.”

The Hart County High School standout already has an early offer from LSU.

“That was awesome,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it when it first happened. It’s kind of just settled in. it was just awesome.”

He recently added an offer from Penn State and is receiving interest from several other major programs as well.

“I’ve been hearing from Michigan State, Wisconsin, Miami,” said Berrong. “I could possibly hear from Georgia because the tight ends coach from Miami is now there and me and him have a good relationship.”

Berrong has been clocked at 4.53 in the 40-yard dash and college coaches like the way he runs and how he goes up and gets the ball.

He’s also had preliminary contact with Notre Dame Director of Recruiting Aaryn Kearney.

 He was saying, ‘Congratulations on the invite’ and stuff like that,” said Berrong, who was fired up just to hear from the Irish.

“It was awesome. They’re definitely one of my top schools that I’ve been trying to get recruited by, so it was awesome.”

When he gets to South Bend for the camp, he’s going to be looking for good competition as well as the chance to check out Notre Dame.

“I really want to see the school and just see how they do things,” he said.

He’d love to add Notre Dame to his offer sheet at some point down the road.

“It would be great,” he said. “Like I said, they’re definitely one of my favorite schools and it would just be a blessing.”

He visited South Carolina this past weekend and is heading to Wisconsin this coming weekend. He’d also like to get to LSU soon if he can.

Berrong will be evaluating academics, his relationships with coaches and each schools’ tradition and history when making his decision.
