They Said It
Tom Lemming Of Prep Football Report: “Physically, Andrew already looks ready for Notre Dame. He will get great coaching from defensive line coach Mike Elston. He’s not a dominating player yet, but he will develop really well. I think he has a ton of upside, but he’s not yet the explosive player that he will become.”
Northern Valley Regional head coach Tony Mottola: “Andrew has done all the right things since he got to our school and has worked tremendously hard to get where he is today. He’s an unreal kid, and he’s got a bright future. I think Notre Dame fans will be very pleased with Andrew over the next few years.”
Trumbetti On Why He Chose Notre Dame: “I think attending Notre Dame is the right decision for me. I want to play early, and I want to get bigger and stronger. I am not going to redshirt, I’m early enrolling, and I believe it’s going to be a great decision for me.”
