Four-star outside linebacker Pete Werner decommits from Notre Dame, leaving the Fighting Irish with 17 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. 


A 4-8 season certainly wasn’t what Brian Kelly expected for his Fighting Irish this season, but it happened. And now, the ripple effects have made their way to the recruiting trail.

Four-star prospect Pete Werner decommitted from Notre Dame Tuesday morning, according to 247Sports.

The Fighting Irish now have 17 total commits in their 2017 recruiting class, which ranks No. 8 in the country. Notre Dame has two other linebackers committed in the cycle: 4-star prospect David Adams, the No. 3 inside linebacker and No. 90 overall player, and 3-star recruit Drew White, the No. 33 inside linebacker.

Werner explained he simply doesn’t feel the same way toward the Irish as he did when he originally committed to Notre Dame on March 21.

It appears as though Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes have emerged as the favorite to land Werner’s commitment, and the 4-star recruit expressed an interest in playing in Columbus.

“I’m now open to other schools. Ohio State is the team that has reached out to me and I’m am closest with. I still need to know more about the school,” Werner said. “[Ohio State] is a place with greatness all around. [I have] nothing more to say about that.”

Werner last visited South Bend on Oct. 15 when the Fighting Irish fell to Stanford, 17-10.

At 6-foot-3, 210 lbs Werner is an athletic, agile linebacker capable of laying big hits and cutting running backs down in their tracks with his block shedding and closing speed.

He holds additional offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Penn State, Texas A&M, Wisconsin and the aforementioned Buckeyes, whose class currently ranks No. 3 in the nation.
