2021 Notre Dame TE Commit Cane Berrong Enjoying The Summer

July 13, 2019

2021 Hart County (Ga.) tight end Cane Berrong‍ has been committed to for almost a month and life couldn’t be better. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder is enjoying his summer, but also time not focused on the recruiting process. 

“It’s been good and very relaxing,” Berrong told Irish Sports Daily. “I get to spend time with my team and getting better. It’s been good.” 

The four-star prospect might live in the heart of SEC county, but his commitment to Notre Dame was well received by his community and high school. 

“They were excited,” stated Berrong. “Everybody was positive about it and gave me congratulations.” 

There will also be a natural target on his back as Berrong is one of the nation’s top tight ends, but it’s business as usual for the Georgia native. 

“I don’t feel any pressure,” Berrong said. “I’m going to play as I always do.” 

Summer 7-on-7 has given Berrong and his teammates an excellent opportunity to improve their game and the Notre Dame commit has been dominant. 

“I use my speed against linebackers and safeties,” Berrong explained. “I have a lot of speed, so it’s pretty easy. When a linebacker tries to get his hands on me, I can get over him. It’s good to work on my speed and get better with my team.” 

Berrong’s speed stood out at Irish Invasion and it’s not by accident.

“I’m doing a lot of speed training when I’m with my trainer,” said Berrong. “I’m working four days a week with the team to get right and get bigger.” 


When it comes to Notre Dame, Berrong is focused on building relationships with his fellow 2021 commits. 

“I have started relationships and I’m going to keep building them,” Berrong said. “I started building one with them before I committed. 

“It’s a good vibe. Everyone is positive and a good person. I saw Gabriel (Rubio) eat a 50 oz. steak and we talked about that.” 

Berrong is also excited to be joined by 2021 quarterback Tyler Buchner in the class. 

“It’s great,” stated Berrong. “We’re getting to build a relationship early, so we’re going to be comfortable with each other before we even get there. It’s really good.” 

The Hart County star will be back to South Bend sooner than later, but it will depend on his schedule. 

“I’ll be back in the fall,” said Berrong. “I don’t know which game yet.”
