I just spoke very briefly with Stephon Tuitt, who informed ISD that he has recommitted to Notre Dame.
"Yes sir, I recommitted to Notre Dame," Tuitt said. "I got a chance to talk to the head coach (Kelly) and my defensive line coach (Elston) and the main defensive coach (Diaco)."
In the Tuitt home tonight was Head Coach Brian Kelly, Defensive Line Coach Mike Elston (Tuitt's main recruiter), Defensive Coordinator Bob Diaco, and Defensive Backs Coach/Recruiting Coordinator Chuck Martin.
Tuitt was able to spend time talking to the Irish coaches about some "issues" that seemed to have been on his mind for some time. "I feel like I got some things off my chest," Tuitt said of his conversation with the Irish coaches. "Some things about the college and some of the little things and big things."
The Irish staff's answers made Tuitt comfortable enough to flip back to Notre Dame. "They answered all my questions," Tuitt said. "I finally have some closure."
When asked if it was over, if he was done, Tuitt responded in the affirmative. "Yes sir, I'm 100-percent."
Tuitt said he had already Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson to let him know he was going back to Notre Dame. Tuitt had met with Johnson earlier in the day.
