Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Irish wide receiver commit, Jordan Johnson is now a 5-Star

Quietly... the best in class.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish just got done with an incredible month on the recruiting trail by securing the commitments of three of the highest rated players on their board in RB Chris Tyree, DE Rylie Mills, and OT Tosh Baker. It matched a similar haul in April, with one of those recruits being WR Jordan Johnson.

Although Johnson was the highest rated WR commitment for Notre Dame since Michael Floyd, it went down somewhat quietly and perhaps not enough fist pumps were thrown up in the air.

Irish fans should redo the whole thing as Rivals just bumped Johnson up to a 5-Star prospect with the release of the their new top 100 rankings.

That rankings bump for Johnson was enough for him to gain his 5th star on the 247 Composite rankings (which is unofficially the official rankings we use here at OFD). All of this makes Johnson the highest rated recruit in the 2020 class for the Irish (sorry KOHLS 5-Star).

Rivals will release their new top 250 on Wednesday, which will most likely impact a decent handful of Notre Dame commits in this 2020 class.

The Irish currently have 11 commitments in the 2020 class with Johnson being the lone 5-Star (again... sorry 5-Star LS). Two current commits that could still eventually be 5-Star players are the two most recent additions in RB Chris Tyree and OT Tosh Baker. Whether that all happens or not is almost inconsequential. Notre Dame is getting a lot of the top players on their board — and we should be throwing up a few more fist pumps.
