his mind in August & signed with Pitt instead & enrolled less than a month later

Also per Beano, he claimed that then PS assistant coach Joe Paterno told him that losing Ditka was the toughest recruiting loss that he ever suffered

EDIT: Terry Brennan & Notre Dame finished 3rd in Ditka's recruitment(1957)

Ditka played against the Irish 3 times-with Pitt winning all 3 games
