Talented athlete Torii Hunter Jr. commits to Notre Dame

It was quite a weekend for Notre Dame as the team finally scored a win over rival Michigan and the program moved into the top 10 with an undefeated record with plenty of momentum despite a tough schedule. The good news continued on Sunday for Brian Kelly and the team as Prosper (Texas) wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr. committed to the Irish in both football and baseball.

"Proud to be part of #Irishmob13 Go Irish," Hunter Jr. said on Twitter.

The 6-foot, 170-pound wideout held offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, Texas Tech and several others. The son of Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, his stock has taken off after being named overall MVP at Nike's The Opening over the summer after showcasing excellent route-running skills, soft hands and deceptive speed. Hunter's brother, Money, is also an FBS-level recruit for the class of 2013.

The recent Irish commitment made his decision after visiting South Bend over the weekend for the game against the Wolverines.

Hunter Jr. gives Notre Dame its 21st commitment for the class of 2013. In need of playmakers at receiver, the Texan becomes the fourth player at the position for the Irish by joining Will Fuller, Corey Robinson and James Onwualu.
