Welcome to the latest update to the Recruiting Big Board. If you missed last week's update at quarterback, running back, and athlete you can read it HERE. Today, we take a look at the three other positions on offense.
|.956||Equanimeous St. Brown||CA||6-5/205||Mild|
The latest player to commit is (FL) Calvin Ridley .980 who signed up with Alabama following their spring game.
Notre Dame's most recent offer was sent out to A.D. Miller, a lanky prospect from Bishop Dunne. The Irish have made nice inroads with that school after signing Nick Watkins so we'll see if things heat up with Miller in the future.
Things have been trending nicely with Boykin but since our last update he's been offered by Florida, Ohio State, Michigan, and Missouri. He also visited Michigan, Ole Miss, and Michigan State recently. Notre Dame is still presumed to be one of his leaders along with Illinois and Michigan State, though. Boykin participated in the Chicago Rivals camp over the weekend and earned MVP honors and a Rivals 5-star Challenge invite as well.
St. Brown visited Stanford for their spring game earlier last month.
One of the recent players invited to The Opening is K.J. Hill. He was supposed to visit for the spring game but wasn't able to make it. We'll see if he makes it up for the summer.
A recent interview with Christian Kirk had him saying he's the No. 1 receiver on the coaching staff's board and he's become a huge priority. Kirk isn't thinking about a top 10 until the summer.
Ryan Newsome wasn't able to make it to Notre Dame during the spring but there's been some encouraging news since then. He has set an official to Notre Dame for the Michigan game and may still visit for camp in June.
One of the visitors this spring was Alex Ofodile and that went well. He was supposed to visit again before making a decision next month but has said he's shutting it down. Most of the experts have him picking his home-state Missouri Tigers.
In not very susprising news Chris Clark left North Carolina's class since our last update. He'll likely make another round of visits at some point and Irish coaches were at his school last week. I don't expect Clark to ultimately end up at Notre Dame so the tight end net is likely going to be enlarged in the coming months.
Notre Dame added its third offensive linemen commit on April 23rd as Trevor Ruhland jumped aboard after being offered a couple weeks prior. It looks like the staff is going to sit on 3 verbals for this cycle. I'd expect them to keep in contact with several targets but not do much work beyond that.
Our rival USC scored a big coup by picking up the commitment of (GA) Chuma Edoga .986 a couple of weeks ago. Just another 5-star for the Trojans.
Another player off the board occurred right after our last update. The Clemson Tigers picked up a verbal from (FL) Jake Fruhmorgen .966 which gives their program two of the top tackles in the country right now.
