We’ve talked a lot about how Notre Dame football is killing it on the recruiting track and the crystal ball throws keep coming like crazy.
You’d think at some point things would slow down for Notre Dame football recruiting, but so far the Fighting Irish have remained remarkably hot under new head coach Marcus Freeman.
Recently, Notre Dame football landed the commitment of 2024 five-star QB CJ Carr, who is the grandson of former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr.
Getting Carr, who ranks 20th overall in the Class of 2024 according to the 247 Sports Composite Ranking, was huge and the momentum hasn’t slowed down at all.
The only negative news for Notre Dame is the fact that Carr’s commitment appears to have ended any hope of landing 2023 five-star QB Dante Moore.
However, the Irish faithful still have much to cheer about and this week Notre Dame received new multi-target crystal ball projections.
One of them is Jack Larsen, who is one of the best tight ends in the 2024 class. He is ranked 175th overall by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings and is eighth among tight ends. He is 6-foot-2, 212 pounds and is from Charlotte, North Carolina.
Notre Dame received three crystal ball screenings for Larsen who is expected to announce his engagement on Friday and it looks like it will be an engagement to the Irish, adding to a class of 2024 that is already ranked No. 2 in the ranking of 247 sports teams.
Another talented 2024 player, Cam Williams, is also in fashion with crystal ball throws at the Irish and has four now. He’s 6-foot-2, 185 pounds from Glen Ellyn, Illinois and he’s ranked No. 122 overall in 2024 and is another rookie Notre Dame will beat Michigan for. Just like Larsen and Carr and it looks like too Rico Flores and Ronan Hanafin.
Notre Dame football has looked to make a step forward in the 2023 class and now that Carnell Tate has a tough trend to Ohio State, the Irish are looking to close with Flores, a four-star ranked 187th in the standings general, and Hanafin, who is ranked 345th overall and is listed as an athlete but is drafted as a wide receiver.
Hanafin has also been offered by Michigan, Georgia and Alabama, among others, as he recently made a visit to Clemson, in addition to a planned trip to Boston College. He was in South Bend last weekend and Notre Dame football seems to be his new leader.
The Irishman currently have 15 commitments in the Class of 2023 and 13 of them are blue chips (4 star rookies or better) and with Flores and Hanafin heading in the right direction, it looks like that number will only increase.
And the truth is, in 2023, Notre Dame football is far from over.
