Notre Dame Truck

Boys like big trucks, and the recruiters at Notre Dame know it. That’s why they drove their equipment hauling 18-wheeler 920 miles to surprise a potential recruit.

The truck, dubbed ND One, was dispatched to the residence of 5-star high school wide receiver Demetris Robertson. The over the top gesture was intended to sway Robertson little more than a week from National Signing Day.

There is no word as to whether the gesture was enough to convince Robertson to go Irish, but he did seem delighted. He said, “I’m still smiling. I couldn’t believe it, I’m still shocked. I didn’t get a chance to see what was in it, because I had to hurry off to school.”
