The Notre Dame Fighting Irish landed their third quality commitment in the 2012 class.

Around the end of July there was some buzz going around that Zach Auguste was a heavy lean to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Notre Dame was doing a good job of recruiting him and he seemed to fit the mold of the type of player they were looking for.

However a funny thing happened on the way to the Irish landing his commitment, Auguste cut them from his initial list of four. For a while it didn’t look like the Irish would have a chance, but then Auguste added them back on and he took a visit. After a mid-week visit, Auguste made his commitment to the school on Friday morning.

Auguste, who confirmed his commitment via text message to, is a versatile big man who can play multiple positions in the frontcourt. He is a legit 6-foot-8 with good athleticism, long arms, and enough physicality to be a problem for opponents around the rim.

By choosing Notre Dame, Auguste selected the Irish over interest from Marquette, Georgia Tech, Florida, and West Virginia. The four other schools were the ones who initially made the cut for Auguste when he selected his official visits after the summer.

Now Auguste is a member of Notre Dame’s class joining Cameron Biedscheid and Austin Burgett. This gives the Irish an impressive frontcourt that will fit in well to Mike Brey’s system.
