Notre Dame, whose incoming recruiting class is universally regarded as the best in the country, got even better on Sunday when coach Charlie Weis received an oral commitment from wide receiver Michael Floyd of St. Paul, Minn.
Floyd, rated as the No. 11 player in the country, chose Notre Dame over Ohio State, Michigan and Minnesota. As a junior, he was Minnesota's high school player of the year.
He is the go-to player that Notre Dame's offense is lacking this season. He ranks as the No. 3 wide receiver in the nation behind Julio Jones of Foley, Ala., and Georgia-bound A.J. Green of Summerville, S.C.
