We have come to the beginning of the end of a very strange Notre Dame Fighting Irish football recruiting cycle. Of course... most of the cycle happened during 2020, so it has to be strange.
Today is the first day of the early signing period for college football, and it will run through Friday this week. After that, the final signing day will be on Wednesday, February 3rd. We expect the vast majority of Notre Dame’s 2021 recruiting class to sign during the early period (like 99%) but as we’ve witnessed for years — anything can happen.
For Notre Dame to compete as a national power, they have to recruit nationally. This current class is no different than previous classes in that over 15 states are represented by the current commitments. In this class of 27, currently, Notre Dame had a record 14 players enroll early in January — which is just incredible.
