The Notre Dame Fighting Irish really want a quarterback in the 2019 class. While they are still recruiting 4 Star Graham Mertz really hard (committed to the Wisconsin Badgers) they have decided to expand their offer board.
Midlothian (Va.) Manchester quarterback Brendon Clark, one of the nation's best and an Elite 11 finalist, tells #IrishIllustrated that #NotreDame has extended an offer. https://t.co/N0Lek2JbJd (FREE)@247Sports pic.twitter.com/n2DM4hOzmu— Tom Loy (@TomLoy247) June 12, 2018
Clark was an Elite 11 finalist and he will take an official visit to Notre Dame this weekend. Brendon visited the Clemson Tigers last weekend, and it was after that visit when Clark re-opened his recruitment.
With that date set, we should know more about Notre Dame’s chances with Mertz within the next few weeks. Besides Mertz and Clark, I think Notre Dame’s next move could be with Georgia quarterback Zack Calzada.
Certainly things are about to get a lot more interesting moving forward, and for Notre Dame, they really need to get some momentum going on the offensive side of the ball. Linemen are lining up, but they still have no commitments from an offensive skill player. Once the quarterback domino falls, maybe that changes everything.
