Kalon Gervin out of Detroit, Michigan has committed to Notre Dame. The 5’11″ 180-pound CB made an early decision and decided on the Irish after the staff offered him just a few weeks ago on February 6th. Michigan was thought to be the biggest threat to land Gervin, but after he visited for Junior Day this past weekend, he seemed to absolutely love Notre Dame and what it has to offer outside of football as well as what it offers between the lines. It also helped that he has great relationships with some of the current Irish commits that were also with him on campus during the weekend. Gervin holds 34 offers from Oklahoma, Florida, LSU and others.
Kalon’s quickness and ability to break on the ball when it’s in the air is what impresses me most. He has all the tools to be an elite corner at the next level. He gets his head turned around and doesn’t seem to panic when the ball is coming his way. He’s a natural cover corner that will go on an island and have the upper hand with whoever he’s matched up with. I’m really excited about what the Irish are getting with Kalon. He fits the mold of Mike Elko’s ideal cornerback perfectly. With zero true cornerbacks last recruiting cycle, it’s great to see the staff getting an early jump at that position. Look for the Irish to try and add at least 2-3 more cornerbacks in the 2018 class.
