Recruiting ‘crystal ball’ specialist 8 prospects to Notre Dame

0 15

There is no such thing as the off-season when it comes to college football. Although games won’t be played until the end of August, there’s still plenty. The second signing period for the 2023 recruitment cycle opens in just a few weeks, the transfer portal doesn’t seem to let things sleep, and coach changes can happen at any time.

Plus, it’s all systems go recruiting for the class of 2024. Notre Dame started last weekend by blitzing Indiana and Chicagoland locals before sending they host a big recruiting weekend on campus. Now there is an expectation of what the next Fighting Irish bets could be going into.

Tom Loy of Irish Illustrated and 247Sports has the same respect in reporter/analyst hiring as Notre Dame football. He made nine crystal ball predictions for 2024 recruits on Monday (Jan. 16, 2023), and sent eight of them to Notre Dame. Here is some information about these eight Irish targets.
