Notre Dame received their 14th commitment in the 2019 class on Monday when Cincinnati Anderson offensive lineman Zeke Correll, coming off his weekend official to South Bend, announced for the Fighting Irish.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Correll is ranked by the industry-generated 247Sports Composite as the No. 9 guard in the country and No. 170 overall prospect. 247Sports has him as the No. 5 guard and No. 131 overall prospect.

"The people. The people at Notre Dame are a whole different breed," Correll said. "It's much different from any other school I went to from the support to the God factor involved made it the best choice for me. Coach Quinn, the first time I met him, we clicked together. They lost Coach Hiestand. He's a great guy, a great coach and Coach Quinn and I built a strong relationship. Then all the players -- I hung out with all of them on my official visit and I fit in great."

The Irish have four offensive linemen committed now with Correll slated to be the pivot man in the middle of the line.

"I'm going to play center and I will early enroll, so if I early enroll and come in at center, Sam Mustipher will be gone next year -- he's a true senior," Correll said. "So if I come in and work hard at it, I have the potential chance to get in so I'm looking forward to learning the position."

Correll will play in January's Under Armour All-America Game and has established himself as a blue-chip prospect.

"I think Notre Dame is landing one of the best interior linemen in the country," 247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong said. :He's a total package from toughness to feet to the ability to be athletic and make all the blocks you want him to to the high I.Q. Notre Dame is recruiting very well on the offensive line in this class and Zeke Correll's arguably their best get. He could play multiple positions in South Bend on the interior but has a bright future at center where he will begin at Notre Dame."

Correll had 27 scholarship offers. Ohio State, Stanford and Clemson were among the other challengers to Notre Dame. Kentucky, Alabama, Michigan and more were just a few of the other programs who had extended offers his way.

On his major, he said he is "thinking some form of engineering."

Correll's recruitment exploded last off-season and after going on a journey from being lightly known to now being committed to Notre Dame, he is thankful for all that has come his way

"It's wild to me. I was starting off being excited to get invited to a small team's spring practice and having no offers to blowing up and getting offered by every school I could ever want. I'm very thankful to God for letting me be in this situation and to my coaches, friends, family and teammates. I'm grateful and it's shocking to me, but I worked really hard and earned it so I'm excited for what the future holds."

So are Irish fans.
