Versatile Oliver Is Irish!

By Nick Shepkowski of Domer Sports Report

An already solid start to Notre Dame's class of 2013 got a little bit stronger on Wednesday as Nyshier Oliver became the fifteenth commitment to the Irish who rank 14th in the nation according to both Scout and Rivals in the recruiting front. What will Nyshier do for the Fighting Irish when he breaks out the gold and blue next fall?

Oliver, a likely safety, is rated as a 4-Star safety on Scout while Rivals grades him slightly lower as he comes in at three stars as an athlete. Oliver has played on both sides of the ball in high school and will be able to add depth at whichever position Charlie Weis and company decide to have him play at Notre Dame.

Oliver originally committed to the University of Tennessee before withdrawing his commitment in mid-August. A day after those events occurred Charlie Weis offered a scholarship in which Oliver accepted Tuesday night.

Notre Dame now has 15 commitments for this years recruiting class and are ranked 14th in the nation in both the Rivals and Scout rankings. From all of us at Domer Sports Report, welcome to Notre Dame Nyshier!

Tale of the Tape:

Position: Athlete/Safety
Height: 5' 10''
Weight: 170 Lbs. (room to grow)
40 Yd Dash: 4.4 Seconds
