B/R Commitment Week: 4-star @CjHo1mes fishes for his school #BRCommitmentWeekhttps://t.co/VJya4qCAmf — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) July 8, 2016 I gotta give it to these kids these days.  The originality is off the chains with these football commitments. 4 Star Athlete C.J. Holmes picked Notre Dame over the likes of Alabama, Tennessee, and Michigan with this rather hilarious fishing video.  HE CAUGHT HIMSELF A LEPRECHAUN! Last season Notre Dame used star athlete C.J. Prosise (converted safety/wide receiver) at the tailback position because of the departure of transfer Greg Bryant and the injury to starter Tarean Folston.  Prosise exploded on the scene and ...
