Tommy Mister

H L Richards High (Oak Lawn, Ill.) class of 2014 quarterback Tommy Mister picked up his first offer when Notre Dame extended one Wednesday, and he spoke to IrishEyes.com about what it means, and his knowledge of the program. Also, with the Irish offered, check out what the staff sees in Mister with his sophomore highlights.

H L Richards High (Oak Lawn, Ill.) class of 2014 quarterback Tommy Mister lives 90 minutes from Notre Dame's campus, but he won't get his first in-depth look at the school until June 22.

That is when he will camp at the South Bend, Ind., campus.

And he will also show up knowing the Irish were the first school to offer. The Irish were at H L Richards High on Wednesday to see the 6-foot-1, 185-pound, dual-threat Mister, and it wasn't long after he received the good news about the offer.

"I'm just excited. I don't even know what to say about," Mister said. "They came to a practice earlier (Wednesday) and my coach gave me a call to tell me that they wanted to offer me."

Mister is also getting interest from Michigan State, Iowa, Illinois, Northwestern, Nebraska and Oregon, but receiving his first offer from Notre Dame makes it that much more special.

"It leaves me speechless," he said. "I don't know what to say. All my dreams are coming true." Mister hasn't had much contact with the Irish, but that will change when he camps there in a few weeks.

However, Mister does pay close attention to one part of the Irish program.

"I don't know too much, but there's a lot of tradition," Mister said. "I like to watch a lot of film on their quarterback, Everett Golson. I really like him."

Mister threw for 750 yards and ran for nearly 500 as a sophomore, and he has an idea of what the Irish see in him.

"I think they like my athleticism, the way I run the offense," he said. "I'm a leader on the field and off the field. I have good grades."
