Nicholas Dillon had his first chance to visit Notre Dame for the Irish’s spring game last weekend and the 2015 Illinois defensive lineman came away impressed.
“It was a great experience,” said the 6-foot-2, 268-pounder from Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Ill.
Dillon was joined by his teammate and friend, 2015 wide receiver Cameron Green, whose father Mark played for the Irish.
“I had never been to Notre Dame, but his dad was a running back there,” Dillon said of Green. “He took us around, showed us the weight room, the trophy room, the All-American board. It was just a great time. There was a lot of stuff I liked about Notre Dame.
