Marion Local OL John Dirksen commits to Notre Dame
Marion Local junior offensive lineman John Dirksen committed to play football at Notre Dame Saturday.
Dirksen is 6'5", 290 lbs and is ranked among the best players in Ohio and one of the better offensive tackles in the country.
The Marion Local standout would likely be ranked even higher if he didn't miss most of his junior season due to injury.
As a sophomore Dirksen was a 1st team All-Midwest Athletic Conference selection. In his freshman season Dirksen earned 2nd team All-MAC honors.
Dirksen picked Notre Dame over offers from Northwestern, Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan State and Vanderbilt among others.
