LOMBARD – Montini senior linebacker Nile Sykes verbally committed to Notre Dame over the weekend.

Sykes transferred to Montini for his senior year after playing with Oak Park River Forest for the previous three years. He also moved from defensive end to linebacker and the college offers exploded for Sykes.

A number of other schools had also offered Sykes, including Illinois, Indiana, Syracuse and Missouri.

This season he helped Montini reach the Class 5A title game. Sykes had 80 tackles, 22 for loss, and 12 sacks this season as he was named Suburban Christian Blue all-conference.
