Johnathan Alston doesn’t know much about Notre Dame at this point, but he knows enough to be excited about receiving an offer from the Irish.
“It was big because that’s a big DI school,” said Alston of landing an offer from Notre Dame recently.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound athlete from Bunn High School in Bunn N.C., also has offers from North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, East Carolina and most recently, Arkansas. He’s also recently receiving interest from Virginia Tech.
Schools have differing views on how Alston’s athleticism would be best-served on the next level.
“South Carolina, they like me at outside linebacker,” he said. “ECU, they said I could play either side. Carolina, they’ve got me at athlete. Notre Dame wants me at wide receiver and I’m not sure about the others.”
