Linebacker Target Brayden Platt “Amazed And Shocked” By Notre Dame Offer

2024 Washington linebacker Brayden Platt relives recent Notre Dame offer

From Sports Illustrated:

You would be hard pressed to find a more impressive two-sport athlete in the 2024 recruiting class than Yelm (Wash.) High School star linebacker Brayden Platt. On Friday, Notre Dame extended an offer to the talented defender, adding to an extremely impressive list of programs with interest.

The West Coast native has of course been courted by a large number of schools from the region. This recent offer from the Irish, however, was something special for Platt. He was met with a series of emotions when it was extended.

“My initial thought when I received the offer was just amazed and shocked,” Platt said. “It is so exciting to be offered by a school as prestigious as Notre Dame. Their brand speaks for itself.”

From Sports Illustrated:

During his trip to Eugene he spent most of his time with head coach Dan Lanning, defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi and linebackers coach Jake Long.

“I love the energy that they bring,” Platt said. “You can tell who they are straight up, it’s not like they’re putting on a front. Those two (Lupoi and Long) especially are football nerds and it’s great to be around.”
