James Onwualu was going to announce his college decision Thursday during a ceremony at this school.

He chose the Irish over other finalists Stanford, Minnesota and Michigan.

"Each time I visited Notre Dame, the pull became stronger,'' Onwualu told the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press. "When I visited other schools, I kept comparing them to Notre Dame."
