Bolingbrook defensive lineman Micah Dew-Treadway committed to Notre Dame on Wednesday.

Bolingbrook rising senior defensive lineman Micah Dew-Treadway announced his verbal commitment to Notre Dame.

Dew-Treadway’s recruitment has take off in recent weeks. Once the evaluation period began and schools could see how much the 6-4, 275-pounder had grown, the offers started flying in. Still, it was the Irish that turned his head the most.

“One of the biggest things about Notre Dame for me was the spirituality,” Dew-Treadway said. “And, not only that, but it was the overall right fit. I was searching for it during my recruitment and hadn’t found it. Notre Dame is it.”

Plus, the Bolingbrook standout knew his family was behind his choice.

“I talked with my mom and dad about it, they felt the same way,” Dew-Treadway said. “So, in Coach Brian Kelly’s office I told him I wanted to commit. He was excited. Committing was kind of on my mind before I visited. I thought it could possibly happen.”

Dew-Treadway recently moved up in the Scout recruiting rankings to a high three-star prospect after national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu had a chance to see him in person this spring.

“He was more athletic than we expected and it was easy to see why he has added new offers recently,” Trieu said.

Dew-Treadway has improved his mobility and grown into his frame since the beginning of his junior year, and Wisconsin, Syracuse, Purdue and Mississippi State all offered.

Dew-Treadway is the third athlete from Bolingbrook to announce his verbal commitment since June began, joining twins Jacob and Julian Huff who will continue their careers at Minnesota.
