4-Star Clarkston offensive lineman Rocco Spindler spurns Wolverines, goes Irish

This one hurts.

The Michigan Wolverines will unfortunately be losing out on a local talent right out of their own back yard.

4-star offensive lineman Rocco Spindler of Clarkston High School ultimately decided to choose the Notre Dame Fighting Irish over the Wolverines. He had also been deciding between Ohio State, Penn State, and LUS.

The 6’4, 260-lb. Spindler announced the news on Saturday during a conference at his high school. While he had good things to say about all of his suitors, he said that the Fighting Irish simply felt different.

“It just felt like home when I was on campus every time. It’s close to home, everything that goes into it, my parents will be rooting for me every step of the way,” Spindler said. “This was not just my own decision, it was for my family as well. I love the coaching staff, they can develop me on the field, get me to play on Saturdays, get me to the NFL, play in front of a huge crowd and also have that relationship off the field.”

Of course, the quality education he can get in South Bend played a factor as well.

“At Notre Dame, you can win a national championship on the field, but I believe you can also in the classroom and that’s a big part of it,” he said.

Spindler was ranked the top player in the state of Michigan by The Detroit News, and was also ranked the No. 3 guard nationally by Rivals.com and 247 Sports Composite.
