2024 Michigan TE Dylan Mesman loved the Irish Invasion


2024 Saline (Mich.) tight end Dylan Mesman‍ made the quick trip to Notre Dame for the Irish invasion on Sunday night.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pounder had an impressive performance and felt it was a good decision to head to South Bend.

“I loved all the coaches,” Mesman told ISD. “They’ve all been really supportive and taught me a lot of good things. It’s been a great experience to be here.”

Notre Dame tight ends coach Gerad Parker quickly impressed Mesman with his coaching style during camp. Parker was able to connect with Mesman and the other tight ends, but also made sure to coach them hard.

“He’s a great guy,” Mesman said. “He really helped with all of our drills. He’s more of a supportive trainer and will always help you while teaching you lessons. It was great to learn from him.”

The four-star prospect made sure to rate Parker’s coaching, while noting where he needed to develop his game. Mesman was also grateful to face quality defensive players in 1-on-1 periods.

“One of the main things I was looking for was to look at the people next to me,” Mesman explained. “My footwork is something that can be key. I have long legs so sometimes it’s hard to get used to, but I’m improving every day.

“I loved playing with some of the best in the country. It was tough, but I learned a lot playing against them.”

And yes, Mesman had a cheat code for a few reps as his high school quarterback, CJ Carr, threw a few balls at him.

“We had a few routes and they both went well,” laughed Mesman. “I caught them easily. CJ is a great guy and he always throws it where you need it.”

The Michigan native will continue his summer camp circuit over the next few weeks as Mesman plans to participate in several programs.

“Right now I have Tennessee coming in next week,” Mesman said. “I’ll be in Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin and a few others. We’re going around the country to see what we can do.”

Mesman is also remaining patient with Notre Dame as an offer from the Fighting Irish would mean a lot.

“It would change everything,” Mesman said. “My family has a group of Notre Dame fans and are really supportive of it. That would change a lot.”

Offers: Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Kansas, Louisville, Maryland, Miami (OH), State of Michigan, Minnesota, Toledo and Virginia Tech
