Notre Dame turned their season around on Saturday with a win against Michigan State and while that was good news for Irish fans, they received even more good news afterwards as Hanahan (S.C.) wide receiver Chris Brown committed to the program.

“It feels really good,” Brown told Scout. “You can’t beat the tradition, you can’t beat the (degree), they have a real young defense but they make plays. I think with me and (fellow Notre Dame commit Ronald) Darby going there, we can make a positive contribution to them”.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder was in South Bend for the game as part of an official visit and despite offers from Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina and others, the comfort with the Notre Dame coaching staff was one of the deciding factors in verbally committing.

“I talked to the offensive coordinator and the receivers coach, and they said they know I’m a good person,” Brown said. “I want to be challenged, and not only getting my degree there, but working for that degree there. They were really impressed with me, I was really impressed with them and it just felt right."

Brown is the 15th commitment for Brian Kelly's class of 2012 and joins Justin Ferguson and Deontay Greenberry as the third wide out in the group. Maxpreps has Brown ranked 21st among wingbacks across the country.
