Cincinnati St. Xavier senior offensive lineman Matt James (6-foot-7, 285 pounds) announced this morning that he has committed to Notre Dame. James also considered Ohio State this week.
As of this morning, James was Ohio’s top uncommitted college recruit from the 2010 class. He is one of the nation’s top recruits overall.
James, who was a U.S. Army All-American selection, had also considered Florida and Cincinnati in January, but recently narrowed his choices to Ohio State and Notre Dame.
Last spring, James also had offers that included the likes of Alabama, Tennessee, LSU, Florida State, Miami (Fla.), North Carolina and several others.
