Recruiting: Troy Niklas picks Notre Dame

February 2, 2011 |  7:50 am

Notre Dame has outdueled USC for Anaheim Servite lineman Troy Niklas, the Los Angeles Times' lineman of the year.

Niklas, a two-way starter for the Pac-5 champion Friars, had wanted to go to Stanford but, due to academics, looked at other schools.

Notre Dame made a big recruiting push for him and gets the premier lineman in Southern California.
