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

Athlete
Score Player State Ht/Wt. Temperature 1* 2* 3* 4* 5*
.972 Devin Asiasi CA 6-5/260 Cold
.963 Marquez Callaway GA 6-2/170 Cold
.940 Jordan Fuller NJ 6-2/190 Mild
.980 Maleik Gray TN 6-3/202 Cold
.963 Jack Jones CA 5-11/170 Cold
.925 Chase Lucas AZ 5-11/166 Cold
.955 Ahmir Mitchell NJ 6-3/206 Cold
.982 Demitris Robertson GA 6-1/165 Cold

The Irish have offered Maleik Gray out of La Vergne, Tennessee to the southeast of Nashville. He spoke with Rivals and mentioned that Notre Dame is recruiting him as an outside linebacker.

Making a huge climb up the rankings lately is Devin Asiasi who is now close to 5-star status. He's also the No. 2 overall athlete and No. 5 player in the state of California.

Scott Booker was in to see Marquez Callaway last week. He's been very quiet with his recruitment and hasn't visited anywhere lately. Most still expect Georgia to get him.

Wisconsin recently offered Jordan Fuller who will be taking a trip across the country this weekend to see Stanford. He spoke with Rivals and said Penn State, Ohio State, and Rutgers are recruiting him the hardest. The Irish are still expecting a visit during the summer and will need it to be a big one.

Notre Dame saw Jack Jones when assistants were out west. He recently spoke of Texas A&M, Oregon, and Michigan grabbing a lot of momentum with him.

No big surprise as Chase Lucas has stated UCLA, Arizona State, and USC are standing out right now.

Notre Dame looked to be one of the final teams for Ahmir Mitchell, however, he recently paired things down to a top two of Ohio State and Rutgers. He could be close to making a decision and has no plans to visit anywhere right now.

As we talked about in our last update Demetris Robertson has left Alabama's class.

Earlier this month Nate Craig-Myers left Auburn's class after being committed for over 9 months. Everyone seems to be talking about Florida State grabbing the lead for his services.

Michigan State's strong early recruiting kept going with the recent addition of (OH) Justin Layne .931 out of Benedictine in Cleveland. Despite several spring visits to East Lansing his Crystal Ball was 75% to Ohio State so this was at least a small surprise for some.

One new offer went out for Notre Dame to Tren'Davian Dickson from Navosta, Texas three-quarters of the way to College Station from Houston. He was happy about it.

The consensus remains that the Irish are in third behind Ohio State and Michigan State for Donnie Corley and it's been that way for quite some time. A few days ago, he was back in East Lansing again.

Not much info to pass along for Dylan Crawford besides the fact that he earned an invite to The Opening recently.

The Irish were in to see Divine Deablo recently (as they do for nearly all their targets) and he was offered earlier this month by Pitt and Penn State. As of earlier this week Notre Dame is not part of his summer visit plans.

Devin Duvernay was offered by Oklahoma State a couple days ago. The latest from Rivals has him appreciating Baylor who was the first team offer him.

Notre Dame has remained in the mix with Josh Hammond. He's tentatively scheduled to commit later in the spring or summer and said recently Florida and Ohio State are recruiting him the hardest.

Brad Hawkins got an offer from Kentucky in early May. A recent interview with Rivals didn't say much besides a visit to Rutgers and no trips planned for the summer yet.

We're about 3 weeks away from Austin Mack making his commitment. He'll be visiting Tennessee this weekend and does not plan on taking any other trips before announcing. The dreaded momentum is not in Notre Dame's favor although the Irish are expected to be among his 2 or 3 finalists.

The folks at Irish 247 still have a lot of confidence in Javon McKinley ending up at Notre Dame. He's been pretty active and will visit more schools. For now, the only official he's scheduled is at Notre Dame, although he's mentioned official visits to Oregon, Tennessee, and Ohio State.

The Irish visited Tre Nixon recently, and he'll be coming up to South Bend this summer. Nixon was at Auburn last week.

Darnell Salomon has a bunch of elite teams after him, including Alabama and Oklahoma. His recruitment looks fairly wide open right now.

Rivals caught up with Trevon Sidney recently who said he's coming to Chicago this summer and will probably make the drive to Notre Dame.

Just a reminder that per our last update the Irish made Dredrick Snelson's Top 10 but it's not likely to go much further than that.

Kevin Stepherson seems to love Florida and was offered by Miami last week. He visited Gainesville this past week.

Autry Denson was in to see Eli Stove recently. The Florida product will be visiting Auburn next week.

Notre Dame visited Tyler Vaughns yesterday. He recently performed at the Rivals Los Angeles camp and made the claim as California's top wideout.

Oklahoma and Arkansas are recent offers for Benjimen Victor. He told Rivals about several schools that are recruiting him the hardest (no Notre Dame, don't think this ever gets serious) and how he'll commit at the U.S. Army game in January.
