Welcome back to the OFD recruiting Big Board for Fighting Irish football.

Score Player State Ht/Wt. Temperature 1* 2* 3* 4* 5*
.951 Devin Asiasi CA 6-5/230 Cold
.970 Marquez Callaway GA 6-2/170 Cold
.935 Jordan Fuller NJ 6-2/190 Mild
.956 Jack Jones CA 5-11/170 Cold
.950 Chase Lucas AZ 5-11/166 Cold
.952 Ahmir Mitchell NJ 6-2/190 Mild
.976 Demitris Robertson GA 6-1/165 Cold

Late last week Alabama suffered an unusual loss in recruiting when Demetris Robertson left their class. Georgia and Stanford were Robertson's other top schools. You can expect this one to last a good long while until he makes his final decision.

Devin Asiasi visited Alabama a couple weeks ago and is coming off a northwest tour of the country in which he visited Washington, Oregon, and Oregon State.

Two weeks ago Jordan Fuller visited Ohio State and came away awfully impressed. 247 has a recent interview with Fuller ($$) in which he discusses his plans to visit Notre Dame this summer. He was invited to the Irish Invasion but won't be able to make it because it's during his finals. Fuller plans on coming to Notre Dame after he's done with school, noted he's been close with Brandon Wimbush since they were little and the Irish coaching staff is coming after him very hard.

Jack Jones has been blowing up this off-season and was the overall MVP of the Los Angeles NFTC a while back. Here's an article from Scout discussing Jones possibly leaving California and playing somewhere else besides the usual suspects like USC and UCLA. He is mentioning visiting Notre Dame soon.

The Irish are still hard after Ahmir Mitchell who still hasn't visited campus yet.

In this ISD piece Mitchell's high school coach says they'll be taking a road trip for 7-on-7 tournaments and expects his star athlete to see Notre Dame then and definitely at some during the summer.

One receiver came off the board last week when (CA) Darian Owens .939 committed to UCLA. He becomes the Bruins third highest rated prospect of their class.

In early April, the Irish offered Kevin Stepherson who has called Notre Dame a school he's 'always wanted to go to.' The following day he was offered by Michigan. Although he's currently unrated the lanky receiver is starting to command a lot of attention.

Stepherson has Notre Dame in his top two with LSU and plans on visiting campus soon.

A quick note as South Carolina commit (GA) Kyle Davis .945 was offered by Notre Dame in early March. He's been a verbal to the Gamecocks for 9 months.

USC just recently handed out an offer to Donnie Corley. He'll be at Michigan State again this weekend.

Josh Hammond's swing through the Midwest saw him visit Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ohio State. This month he was back at Florida for another visit to Gainesville.

We're going to get a top list of teams soon from Brad Hawkins out of New Jersey. It is expected that Notre Dame will make the cut.

Austin Mack continues to be busy this spring with visits to Ohio State and Michigan State in April. Here's a video of him working out at AWP Sports in Fort Wayne.

It's been a busy April for Javon McKinley who has visited UCLA and Miami--picking up an offer from the Hurricanes during his trip. Just a few days ago he picked up an offer from Ohio State. This weekend he'll be visiting Notre Dame.

Tre Nixon recently visited in-state Florida.

It was a third trip to Alabama recently for Darnell Salomon.

Former Miami commit Dredrick Snelson released a Top 10 earlier this week and Notre Dame the cut.

Snelson is friends with Irish freshman Tevon Coney from their 7-on-7 team and has been in constant contact with Autry Denson. Good news here, but let's see if a visit comes out of it.

Eli Stove earned an invite to The Opening earlier this month and following a visit to Auburn the consensus is that he'll be joining the Tigers class soon.
