Quarterback Anthony Rezac has committed to Notre Dame, alongside his brother, Teddy.

Quarterback Anthony Rezac has committed to Notre Dame University. The three-star recruit accepted a preferred walk-on opportunity as a quarterback with the Irish. 

Rezac said the decision came down to the academics and his ability to play at the next level. He is excited for the opportunity Notre Dame presents for life beyond football. 

“It’s a phenomenal and academic school and that probably plays the biggest part. It’s a high level of football, which I know I can compete at and I’m just excited for the future,” Rezac said.

Anthony will join his own brother Teddy Rezac, who committed to play linebacker in May. The two brothers have grown up playing football and the opportunity to continue to play together is going to be a really cool opportunity. 

“It’s definitely really cool, having played with him my whole life it would be a little bit off not to be with him,” Rezac said. “It’d definitely be gonna be a cool experience going to college with him and playing with him.” 

Rezac had offers to play at Colgate, Dartmouth, Harvard, South Dakota, Yale, Army, Navy and Air Force and interests from others including Kansas and the Irish. He took visits to Kansas and Notre Dame, but the visit to South Bend really caught his eye. 

“The environment of the game day it was electric. Both games I went to Ohio State and USC, they’re both night games in the stadium and the fans were awesome, the walk with the team from the chapel was super cool. It was just somewhere I knew I could see myself going.”

The appeal for his development was something that stood out to Rezac; he really likes the opportunities and chances he’ll have to get better at Notre Dame. 

“Them helping me get better at every aspect of my game, arm strength, accuracy, mechanics, reading the field, knowing the offense, everything that I think I need to get better at is everything I know they can help me with,” Rezac said. 

Rezac is really thankful for the support he has received throughout his career and his commitment process. The support from family, teammates, friends and community makes him realize he’s not doing it for himself. The support system he has is something he’ll never take for granted. 

“It means alot, knowing that there’s people that will support me with whatever decision I made,” Rezac said. “It helps me keep going just because I know I’m not necessarily just doing it for myself. “I have a lot of other people that believe in me and want me to succeed.”
