Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Tommy Mister Visits Illinois

2014 athlete Tommy Mister unofficially visited the Illinois Fighting Illini on January 26th.

He has offers from four teams. These teams include: Notre Dame, Ball State, Illinois, and Indiana.

Out of those four offers, it is projected that Mister is most interested in the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at this point in time.

Mister is a 6’2″, 185 pound quarterback/running back from Oak Lawn, Illinois. He played this past season at H.L. Richards High School.

Mister started his junior season at quarterback, but moved to running back after returning from an injury.

Coach Tony Sheehan of Richards has said that the move to running back was because of how his replacement, sophomore Hasan Muhammed-Rogers, played during his absence.

Richards made it to the quarterfinals of the Class 6A Illinois State Playoffs, but will be without Mister next season.

This is because Mister transferred to St. Rita High School over winter break and started school at St. Rita on January 6th.

St. Rita did not make the playoffs for the first time in twelve seasons after finishing with an overall record of 4-5.

As a running back this past season, Tommy Mister ran for 1,076 yards on 137 carries and 15 touchdowns.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 10th in the state of Illinois and 33rd among athletes by 247Sports.
