Dwenger junior commits to Notre Dame

Bishop Dwenger junior Tony Springmann has committed to play football at Notre Dame.

Springmann made an oral commitment to new Irish coach Brian Kelly before Saturday's Blue-Gold game in South Bend.

In a text message to The Journal Gazette, Springmann wrote: "Shook Coach Kelly's hand and am part of the Irish."

A 6-foot-7, 240-pound offensive and defensive lineman, Springmann was in South Bend for the Blue-Gold game with his family.

He can't officially sign with Notre Dame until February of his senior year.
