Notre Dame Football Recruiting

Notre Dame A Significant Offer For 2020 OL Michael Carmody

May 6, 2019

Notre Dame was an offer 2020 Mars (Pa.) offensive lineman Michael Carmody‍ had wanted for quite some time and his patience paid off on Sunday evening. 

“Coach Quinn had come to the school on Tuesday and Friday, he said he wanted to talk to me on the phone with my parents,” Carmody told Irish Sports Daily. “I got on the phone with him Sunday and he told me I had an offer to play for Notre Dame.” 

It’s no secret Notre Dame is held in high regard in the Carmody household as the Irish basketball team successfully recruiting his older brother, Robby.

“It’s pretty awesome to get that offer,” said Carmody. “Robby is there and it’s in our bloodline now that we have a Notre Dame kid and I have an offer to play football there. It’s pretty incredible.” 

The Irish will still have to battle it out with Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia Tech, so there is plenty of work to do, but it’s no secret the Notre Dame offer will change his recruitment.

“My parents and I were talking about official visits on Sunday and then Coach Quinn called,” explained Carmody. “It definitely is something to think about and it will change up my recruitment a little bit. Notre Dame is a school I have liked for a long time and they now want me to come on an official. It will change some stuff up.” 

One intriguing part of Carmody’s game is he is just tapping into his potential on the offensive line. As a former tight end, Carmody has made the transition to offensive line and will make another position move this fall.

“Most coaches say they see me at left tackle and that’s always subject to change,” stated Carmody. “I play right tackle, but I’m planning on moving to left tackle because that’s where I hope to play in college. I think I’ll be good at it with my athleticism, but wherever gets me on the field is where I want to play.” 

Carmody will now turn his focus on setting up his official visits which will allow him the chance to get to see his top programs on a deeper level.

“Playing time always works itself out, so it’s not something I’m worried about right now,” said Carmody. “I’m interested in the academics and spending time with the team because I haven’t done that at a lot of places. I want to hang out around the coaches and see what they have to say about everything.”
