An accomplished rusher, as well, the 6-foot-4, 227-pound Jurkovec also gained 130 yards on 22 carries for a 5.9 yards per carry average.

He had over a dozen high-level offers, picking Notre Dame over Alabama, Clemson, Kentucky, Michigan State, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt, Tennessee, UCLA, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
