Notre Dame landed its first running back commit for its 2015 recruiting class on Monday when Josh Adams gave his verbal pledge to the Fighting Irish.
The 6-2, 200-pounder from Central Bucks South High School (Warrington, PA), who visited South Bend for the first time two weeks ago, is a three-star running back, according to Rivals.com.
Adams had offers from Stanford, Penn State, and Pittsburgh, among others. The Panthers were considered a leading contender for his services along with the Irish.
While his 2013 campaign was shortened because of a torn ACL, Adams recorded 255 rushes for 2,089 yards and 28 touchdowns as a sophomore.
With this new pledge, Notre Dame now has 15 commitments for its 2015 class.
