Coach Brian Kelly received his 14th verbal commitment for the 2015 class today from K Justin Yoon (Milton, MA - Milton Academy).  He is listed at 5'11"/185 lbs.

Yoon has visited Notre Dame twice this month after receiving his scholarship offer.  He was on campus most recently on Sunday and chose the Irish over Stanford and Northwestern.  He also held offers from Boston College and Texas A&M.

247Sports Composite Score - 3 star (0.8167), #1457 Overall (#1 K, #7 MA)





Immediate Future:

With the graduation of Kyle Brindza, Yoon should step in and immediately take over his duties on kick-offs and as place kicker.

Long Term/Career:

Yoon is considered the top kicker in this class by a wide margin.  His highlights show that he can routinely hit field goals from a long distance and put the ball in the endzone on kickoffs.  He should have an excellent career for the Irish.

Welcome to Notre Dame Justin!
