Notre Dame Recruit Alex Anzalone Decommits From Irish After Brian Kelly’s NFL Interview
Four-star linebacker Alex Anzalone‘s recruitment has been quite the roller coaster. His first decommitment came when he switched from Ohio State to Notre Dame in early May. The recruitment of the Wyoming (Pa.) linebacker took another turn today, as he decommitted from Notre Dame and decided to enroll early with the Florida Gators, according to Rivals.
Mike Farrell was the first to report this.

Anzalone did not give any indication to his decision at the Under Armour All-America game and practices last week. That all changed though, when head coach Brian Kelly met with the Philadelphia Eagles about their head coaching position. I guess if Kelly wouldn’t fully commit to him, Anzalone decided he would like to play elsewhere.
Some of his fellow Notre Dame recruits did not necessarily like his decision:

Anzalone will be missing out on a #Mob, apparently, but he will be joining a Florida mob on defense that will be stacked next year, with Vernon Hargreaves III coming in as well as Anzalone. Another huge get for coach Will Muschamp, who benefited big time from Brian Kelly’s apparent mistake to interview for another job.
