Iowa guard Caitlin Clark recently broke the NCAA’s all-time scoring record, not just for the women, in all of Division I history.

Clark could have done that in a Notre Dame uniform.

According to a story by ESPN’s Wright Thompson, her high school head coach Kristin Meyer believed that she was headed to South Bend.

Thompson explained that “for a while I thought she was gonna end up at Notre Dame.”

Clark’s family wanted her to play for the Irish, so did “everyone in her high school.”

Clark even called Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder to tell her the bad news, that the in-state star was going to play for the Irish. Publicly, a commitment never actually happened.

The downfall for the Irish was her official visit, which Clark “wanted to love it. In fact, she got frustrated with herself for not loving it,” explained Thompson.

And that was it, she’d go on to have a record breaking career in Iowa City. Another what-if for Notre Dame.
