The first commitment of Notre Dame’s recruiting class of 2011, Brad Carrico started his high school career as a quarterback.

He made the switch to defensive line after his sophomore season, and in his first year at the new position. Carrico recorded 74 tackles, eight for loss, along with nine sacks. His performance as a senior then earned him a bid to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

With his good size which has the potential to fill out even more with weight training, Carrico could possibly be a better fit on the offensive line, a position with more scarcity than the jam-packed defensive line crew in this year’s recruiting class.
