FH Harrison's Kareem commits to Notre Dame

On Friday afternoon, Farmington Hills Harrison defensive end Khalid Kareem announced on his twitter page that he has committed to Notre Dame.

“Thank you to all the colleges that recruited me and the schools that over looked me,” Kareem tweeted. “As an early enrollment student/athlete, the combination of great academics and great football is most important to my family and I. I’m 100% committed to further my education and play college football at the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish.”

Over the summer, Kareem announced that he was committed to Alabama, but made the announcement early last week that he had decommitted from the Crimson Tide and re-opened his recruitment.

Kareem is considered a 4-star recruit and also had received offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon and Stanford. The 6-foot-4 defensive end received scholarship offers from almost 40 Division 1 schools.

Kareem was also committed to Michigan State in early 2015, but decommitted to re-open his recruitment

So far this season, Kareem has registered 60 tackles and 10 sacks to help lead Harrison to a 7-1 record heading into the final week of the regular season.

Kareem recorded 85 tackles and 18 sacks in his junior season as he helped lead the Hawks to a Division 2 semifinal appearance.

Kareem took an official visit to South Bend on Saturday, October 17, when the Fighting Irish played host to USC.

Harrison will face West Bloomfield on Friday night in the final game of the regular season.
