Football: Penn Charter's McGlinchey commits to Notre Dame

Mike McGlinchey, a 6-foot-8, 290-pound junior offensive lineman from Penn Charter, has orally committed to play at Notre Dame.

McGlinchey closed his weekend visit to South Bend by giving a non-binding verbal to Fighting Irish boss Brian Kelly and his staff, including offensive line coach Harry Hiestand.

"I decided it's the right place for me and it's a dream come true to be able to be a member of the Notre Dame football team," McGlinchey told Irish Sports Daily.

The mammoth tackle was also being recruited by Wisconsin and Penn State, among others.

Last season, McGlinchey, a two-way tackle for the Quakers, earned Inquirer first-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania honors on defense.

He is the first cousin of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, a former Penn Charter standout.
