2014 Notre Dame Recruiting Big Board (June)

What follows is a giant list of all the offers and commits Notre Dame has in the 2014 class of football players.

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports


Players who have committed to Notre Dame can be found on our One Foot Down 2014 Recruiting Central Page and those who have committed elsewhere but hold Irish offers are listed at the very bottom of the post.

If a listed player commits to Notre Dame he will be removed from this list and moved to the 2014 Recruiting Central Page immediately. If a player commits to another school he will be moved down to the bottom of this post to his corresponding program.

Uncommitted players have 247's Composite Rankings---a combination of all 4 major services rankings---at their respective position.
