Florida WR Jordan Pouncey Confirms Commitment To Notre Dame On Twitter

The easy pick for Jordan Pouncey's commitment was Florida, the school that his two cousins—Mike and Maurice Pouncey, of the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers respectively—attended. Instead, the Winter Park native will be leaving his home state, and heading all the way up to South Bend. He confirmed the decision with a response to Notre Dame's not-so-subtle acknowledgment of the commitment.

Pouncey explained his decision to 247Sports.

“Coach Denson is a great coach and an even better recruiter,” said Pouncey of Denson. “He’s one of the best coaches that I’ve dealt with. Coach Denbrock is a real good guy. I was excited to finally meet him and coach Denson.”...“The tradition and the academics,” said Pouncey, when asked what he likes most about Notre Dame. “That’s what matters most.”

Most of those putting in predictions for 247Sports' crystal ball believed he would end up a Gator, and not with the Fighting Irish.
Pouncey is the 12th member of Notre Dame's 2017 class.
