Notre Dame Football Recruiting

BREAKING | 2021 Four-Star TE Cane Berrong Commits To Notre Dame

June 21, 2019

There is not a hotter team in the country than Notre Dame when it comes to 2021 recruiting. The momentum of last weekend continued on Friday as 2021 Hart County (Ga.) tight end Cane Berrong‍ has committed to Notre Dame. 

The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder is one of the nation’s most coveted tight ends and chose the Irish over Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Iowa, LSU, Michigan. Michigan State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin. 

Berrong was in South Bend for Irish Invasion and felt at home on campus, but it was offensive coordinator Chip Long that made the difference. 

“He talked to my parents and said he’s going to be recruiting the hell out of me,” stated Berrong. “He liked the way I ran and was really impressed with me.”

Another big part of Berrong’s commitment was his time around Notre Dame tight end Brock Wright. Who hit it off with the four-star prospect. 

“Brock a really cool dude,” said Berrong. “I never really got to spend a lot of time with tight ends on other visits, so I really like Brock and Cole (Kmet). I got to meet some of the offensive linemen and I really liked all of them. I felt like I could fit and Brock is probably my favorite player that I’ve met.”

Berrong also gets Notre Dame as his final impression of the campus and program is precisely how Irish fans would describe their time in South Bend. 

“I’ve always liked Notre Dame,” said Berrong. “It has always been one of my favorites, but after seeing the campus and stadium and talking to the players, I don’t know how to explain it. I just really like Notre Dame a lot better. It’s different than I thought. I really love it. I could see myself going there.”

Berrong now joins quarterback Tyler Buchner‍, offensive lineman Blake Fisher‍ and offensive lineman Greg Crippen‍ as part of Notre Dame’s haul on offense in the 2021 class.
