Floyd chooses Notre Dame


Cretin-Derham Hall (St. Paul, Minn.) senior wide receiver Michael Floyd pledged to Notre Dame last weekend.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder chose Notre Dame over Ohio State, Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Florida and Wisconsin.

Floyd is a difficult matchup for any defensive back because he of his unique combination of size, strength and speed. As a junior, he was named Gatorade State Player of the Year after catching 63 passes for 1,240 yards and 16 touchdowns and rushing for 246 yards and three scores.
