A little stick-Tuitt-iveness can go a long way in recruiting.
And because of a never-say-die attitude, Notre Dame on Wednesday regained a valuable piece of its recruiting puzzle that 24 hours earlier it had lost.
Five-star defensive end Stephon Tuitt re-committed to the Irish Wednesday night, a day after he said he was changing his commitment from ND to Georgia Tech.
Tuitt’s mother, Tamara Tuitt, confirmed the news late Wednesday.
“That is correct,” she said. “He is done with recruiting.”
Tuitt, a senior at Monroe Area High School in Monroe, Ga., was visited Wednesday night by Irish head coach Brian Kelly, defensive coordinator Bob Diaco, defensive line coach Mike Elston and defensive backs coach/recruiting coordinator Chuck Martin.
