Notre Dame picked up another wide receiver oral commitment over the weekend as wide receiver Michael Floyd chose the Irish, according to Scout.com.
Floyd, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound five-star recruit from Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, Minn., is Notre Dame's 20th commitment for the Class of 2008. Floyd chose the Irish over Florida, Ohio State and Minnesota, among others.
"It feels real good knowing that I have a school now," Floyd told Scout.com. "I'm going to help them bring this back and I'm going to get a great degree."
Floyd isn't the only one excited about his non-binding commitment. Wide receiver John Goodman, an Irish oral commitment from Bishop Dwenger, became good friends with Floyd after the two roomed together during summer football camp at Notre Dame.
"When I got to know him more and more I knew he loved the place," Goodman said. "Yesterday I was talking to him at the game and everything and we were sitting together and messing around and having fun. I didn't think it would come this early. I thought he was going to do it at the All-American game."
Goodman and Floyd fill a need for the Irish as well. David Grimes and D.J. Hord will be seniors next year and wide receiver is a spot where Notre Dame can never have enough talent.
"It's cool cause Notre Dame needed receivers obviously and we're good friends," Goodman said. "We're going to try to get through all of it together."
