R.I.P. Matt James

Tragedy struck the Fighting Irish football program today when incoming recruit Matt James passed away after falling from a third-floor hotel balcony in Panama City, FL. He was days away from his 18th birthday on April 9.

James, a four-star offensive tackle from nationally acclaimed St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati, OH, was a U.S. Army All-American and USA Today first-team All-American. Many projected him as an early starter on the 2010 edition of the Fighting Irish.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire James family in this time of need.
