Hayes was considering Michigan State and Ohio State.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish landed a commitment from four-star linebacker Daelin Hayes of Skyline High School in Ann Arbor, Mich., he announced on Thursday.
“God, country, Notre Dame,” Hayes said in a Dark Knight-themed video posted to Bleacher Report. “Go Irish.”
Hayes brings the Notre Dame recruiting class for 2016 to 19 players.
The 6-foot-3, 239-pound linebacker is expected to enroll early at Notre Dame after playing in next month's U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.
