Pope — a 6-2, 210-pounder from Dinwiddie (Va.) High — is listed as the nation’s No. 6 athlete and No. 98 overall player by Rivals.

Notre Dame offered one of the top athletes in the country today in Dinwiddie (Va.) High product K’Vaughan Pope.

The 6-2, 210-pound Pope also holds offers from Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Florida and Georgia, among others. He is the second player from Virginia to receive an offer from the Irish following Virginia Beach (Va.) Bishop Sullivan linebacker Teradja Mitchell. He is the 12th junior designated as an athlete to be offered by Notre Dame.

Pope shined on both sides of the ball this past season as a junior. According to MaxPreps, Pope caught 33 passes for 630 yards and seven touchdowns. He also recorded 135 total stops, 29 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and six interceptions.

The Rivals100 talent was named to All-USA Virginia first-team defense by USA Today and Class 4A all-state first-team defense by the Virginia High School League (VHSL). Pope helped lead Dinwiddie to a state championship game appearance.

Pope is ranked by Rivals as the No. 3 prospect in Virginia, and the No. 6 athlete and No. 98 player in the country.
