Notre Dame Offers Spokane’s Danny Mattingly


A three-star recruit from Spokane, Washington, has recently received his 12th offer. Danny Mattingly, who is going into his senior season with the Mead Panthers, has recently gotten an offer from Notre Dame.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound dual threat on offense and defense hasn’t created much buzz as his latest offer was from Oklahoma a month ago, but the local Washington prospect has had some good production in his junior season and holds high hopes going into his senior year. He has his highest position ranking at 25 on Rivals, and he is ranked as the 4th best prospect in the state on 247sports.

Mattingly played on two positions with the Panthers during his junior season, tight end and outside linebacker. His offensive numbers aren’t frequent, but he has caught 10 passes for an astonishing 245 yards and six touchdowns. On defense, he has recorded 6.2 tackles a game, four interceptions, and caused two fumbles which he recovered.

Oregon and Utah are currently the biggest interests for Mattingly, and both have offers for him. Other schools that have given him an offer are Arizona State, Boise State, Idaho, Nebraska, Oregon State, UCLA, Washington, and Washington State.

It’s possible that with the Irish being the first school east of the Mississippi to extend an offer to Mattingly, his name will become more recognized and his value could rise.
