Jesse Bongiovi, son of rocker Jon Bon Jovi, is heading to South Bend this fall with plans of playing football for the Fighting Irish.

Dave Miller of NationalFootballPost.com has more:

Jesse Bongiovi will walk on as a freshman in the fall after taking in the football team's spring game this past weekend in South Bend.

The 5-11, 180-pound Poly Prep Country Day (Brooklyn) football and lacrosse standout would prefer to play cornerback for the Fighting Irish but would be open to playing another position as well.
