Sam Mustipher, the No. 2 offensive guard in the 2014 class, ended his recruitment Monday when he committed to Notre Dame.
His decision was announced via twitter.
"I've decided that I will be attending Notre Dame and will do my best to add all that I can to the Irish academically and athletically!" Mustipher wrote on twitter. "First and foremost, I want to thank God for blessing me with this opportunity, my wonderful family and friends for the support and sacrifice. All the schools and coaches that have believed in my academic and athletic abilities and the fan bases that have supported me."
The decision does not come as a big surprise since Mustipher, who plays at Our Lady of Good Counsel (Olney, Md.), told IrishEyes.com two weeks ago the Irish were in good position.
"The visit went really great,” Mustipher said at the time. “My little brother and my mom loved it. My dad liked it a lot too, but he had seen Notre Dame before. This was my mom’s and brother’s first trip. The staff was great as always, and South Bend is one of the more hospitable places that I’ve been.”
The 6-foot-3, 286-pound Mustipher is the sixth player to commit to Notre Dame for the 2014 class. He is the second offensive lineman to commit for the class, joining St. Ignatius High's (Cleveland) Jimmy Byrne.
