OL Parker Boudreaux commits to Notre Dame

Notre Dame’s 2016 recruiting class added a big commitment from Florida offensive lineman Parker Boudreaux today. One of the country’s top interior linemen chose Notre Dame in a online video done in collaboration with Bleacher Report.

Boudreaux, out of Bishop Moore high school in Orlando, chose Notre Dame over Clemson, Oklahoma, and Florida. He had offers from programs like Alabama, Auburn, Miami and Ohio State — and in the B/R video claimed the most offers in the nation for an offensive lineman.

At 6-foot-4, 290 pounds, Boudreaux already looks the part of a college football player. And after choosing to pull a school bus in his commitment video, it’s pretty clear he takes lifting weights seriously (along with mugging for the camera).

Feelings about the hype video aside, it’s a big catch for the Irish. Harry Hiestand has added another outstanding offensive lineman to the fold, reloading an interior that’ll lose Nick Martin after 2015 and Steve Elmer after 2016.

Boudreaux is Notre Dame’s 11th commitment, a move that came quickly after Boudreaux and his family visited South Bend. He joins Liam Eichenberg and Tommy Kraemer up front.
