DT was a great get for the Irish on Signing Day

Friday, February 07, 2014 12:01 am
The News-Sentinel sports staff will feature a different verbally committed player for the four NCAA Division I football programs (Ball State, Indiana, Notre Dame and Purdue) in Indiana through National Signing Day as teams fill up their respective classes.Here is today's Notre Dame featured commit:Position: Defensive tackle

High School: Winton Woods High School in Cincinnati, Ohio

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 275 pounds

Commitment date: February 5, 2014

Other scholarship offers: 18, including Arkansas, Florida, Louisville, Michigan State, Missouri, Nebraska and Tennessees.

Ranking: Rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, the No. 27 player in the state of Ohio and the N0. 27 defensive tackle in the country; rated a four-star prospect by Scout.com and the No. 15 defensive tackle in the country.

Notre Dame depth chart at position: Sophomore Jarron Jones, sophomore Tony Springmann.

Scouting report: Do not downplay the addition of Cage on the morning of National Signing Day. This is a beefy but athletic defensive lineman that can play the nose guard or defensive tackle positions for Notre Dame. Cage plays with a ferocity that is a needed attribute when competing at the BCS level of college football in the trenches. He also gets off the ball with quickness, a must along the defensive front. An eager player that does not quit, Cage adds some additional depth along the defensive line and is versatile enough not to be pigeon-holed into just one spot. Coach Brian Kelly would love to be able to redshirt Cage, but that will be dictated on his work ethic as a freshman as well as the depth chart in front of him.
