When Notre Dame offers a kid from New Jersey power Bergen Catholic, it’s a good bet that kid is going to take a serious look at the Irish.

Notre Dame recently extended an offer to 2020 Bergen Catholic defensive back Jordan Morant‍, who head coach Vito Campanile says is a good one.

“He’s got a tremendous amount of potential,” Campanile said of Morant. “He is a national recruit. He’s kind of a transcendent type of guy here. He has an unbelievable skill set. If he continues to progress, he’s got the ability to be a high-level college athlete.”

The 6-foot, 197-pound junior is being recruited as a cornerback and safety.

“I think he can be anything,” his coach said. “I think he could play either one. He’s certainly physical enough.”

Notre Dame recruited 2019 Bergen Catholic defender Aeneas DiCosmo‍, who signed with Stanford.

Campanile says Morant has done “a solid job” in the locker room and classroom.

“I wouldn’t say he’s an outgoing vocal leader, but I think his play does most of his talking for him,” the coach said. “Where I think Aeneas is probably a little more outgoing in that capacity, Jordan has a tremendous amount of ability and I think his upside is…forget it.”

Morant also has offers from schools like Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, LSU, Nebraska, Florida, Stanford, Penn State, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Tennessee and USC among several others, but the Notre Dame offer had him excited.

“Of course,” Campanile said. “How could you not be?”

Morant told Irish Sports Daily he’s hoping to get to South Bend for a visit this spring.

“It’s one of those places what I call life-changer schools,” said Campanile. “You’d be crazy not to look at that in a different light than just any other offer.

“It’s the whole package. It’s everything you’re looking for. I would think you come to a place like Bergen Catholic to try to get to a place like Notre Dame.”
