While Notre Dame already held their home opener against Temple, this weekend's game against Michigan State marks the first game for several visitors heading to campus. This is the first installment of a season-long series detailing the recruiting visitors to South Bend for each home game.

- Beneventi appears to be the top QB choice for the staff from the 2015 class and will likely make a decision in the spring.
- Hilliard is already highly recruited by most major programs, as he is a Top 50 prospect from the 2015 class.
