The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have picked up the commitment of Santa Clara Bronco’s transfer guard Trey Wertz. He will have two years of eligibility left, but will likely have to sit out a year before he can play. He picked the Fighting Irish over the North Carolina Tar Heels, Arizona Wildcats, and Butler Bulldogs. This seems to be an ideal fit for both Wertz and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Notre Dame was the favorite and Wertz had great things to say about the Fighting Irish before making the decision to commit there. The Fighting Irish are well known for letting guards play more freely in head coach Mike Brey’s system. Wertz is a talented guard and could thrive in Mike Brey’s system at Notre Dame. He averaged 11.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game. Wertz also paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 48.9 percent and a three-point percentage of 40 percent.

Wertz made the following comment about his commitment to the Fighting Irish: “Coach Brey said he didn’t want to bring me in as just a role player. He expects to come in and make an impact on the team.” It seems clear that he picked Notre Dame because he believes that they provide the best chance for him to thrive. The Charlotte, North Carolina native can spend his remaining two years in a great system fit.
