George Takacs, a tight end at Gulf Coast High School in Naples, Florida, announced his commitment to join Notre Dame's 2018 recruiting class.

Listed at 6-foot-7 and 240 pounds, Takacs is rated either a three- or four-star prospect by most recruiting services. He reportedly chose the Irish over Florida, Florida State, Wisconsin and Auburn, among others.

"Tight End U is in great shape," Aaryn Kearney, Notre Dame's director of recruiting, wrote in a message posted to his Twitter account after Takacs' announcement.
