OT Ronnie Stanley is Irish!

Brian Kelly received verbal commitment #16 for 2012 this afternoon from Ronnie Stanley, OT (Las Vegas, NV - Bishop Gorman). Stanley joins two other offensive line commitments to Notre Dame for 2012 in OT Taylor Decker and Swiss army knife OL Mark Harrell.

Stanley chose the Irish over Nebraska and Arkansas. He is listed at 6'6" and 285 lbs by most services, and has a reported 40 yd dash time of 5.0 sec.

Here is a look at the various service rankings:

ESPN - 4 Star (#1 NV, #39 OT), 79 Grade

Rivals - 4 Star (#1 NV, #19 OT), #171 Overall (5.8 Grade)

Scout - 4 Star (#14 OT), #78 Overall

247Sports - 4 Star (#1 NV, #14 OT), #121 Overall (95 Grade)

MaxPreps - 4.5 Star, #117 Overall

Impact:

Immediate Future:

Like all offensive linemen in Brian Kelly's system, Stanley will likely sit out as a freshman to learn the blocking schemes and bulk up under the watchful eye of S&C coach Paul Longo.

Long Term/Career:

Ronnie is a guy who will likely end up as a multi-year starter and can play either tackle position. If I had to use two words to describe this kid, they would be: athletic and tough. I don't know what else you want from an offensive linemen. He should have a good shot at breaking the two-deep in 2013 if not becoming an outright starter at one of the two tackle positions.

Irish fans should be excited about bringing this guy on board, because he projects to be a very good player in the near future.

Welcome to Notre Dame, Ronnie!
