4-star QB chooses Notre Dame after decommitting from Pitt

Last week, Pope John Paul II (Tenn.) four-star senior linebacker Kenny Minchey announced his departure from Pittsburgh. It didn’t take long for Minche to choose his new school.

Yesterday, Minchey already announced his commitment to Notre Dame.

Minchey (6-foot-1, 207 pounds) is ranked No. 15 among quarterbacks in his class and No. 254 nationally. He played in just five games this season due to a shoulder injury, but had a very strong Junior year with 3,280 yards, 32 touchdowns and nine picks.

Minchey told On3 that the Fighting Irish put him in the best position to succeed.

“I feel like the coaches believe in me as a player and value me as a person and I think they’re going to be able to coach me and get the best out of me … And the players I’m going to have around me to put me in the best position to be successful. The tradition that the football program has along with academics definitely stands out.”

Notre Dame now has 20 four-star recruits and one five-star in Guyer (Texas) safety Peyton Bowen. They still rank No. 3 in the 2023 recruiting class, but are now just behind No. 2 Georgia.
