One by one, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will add new members to its football family during the early signing period for the 2022 recruiting class. Rather than beat the site down with a profile piece after each of the recruits sent in their NLI, we simply offer this recruiting tracker for the day.

OFD will offer plenty of other recruiting news and recruiting stories all day long as we fist pump our way to another really good class for the Irish.

Any new NLI’s will be registered here via a tweet, and marked off on the commitment list. Check back throughout the day to stay up to date. The recruit’s name’s are links to their past commitment posts here on OFD.

While most of Notre Dame’s current commit list is expected to sign with the Irish, WR Amorion Walker is up in the air. He will make an announcement at 10:00 AM to decide between the Irish, the Michigan Wolverines, and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

There are a couple of other announcements of interest as well. 4-Star defensive back Devin Moore will announce between the Irish and the Florida Gators at 7:30 AM, and 5-Star defensive tackle Anthony Lucas will announce at 4:30 PM.

I will keep the tracker pinned to the top of the site all day, and I encourage you to use the comment section much as you would for a live game thread. There should be plenty to talk about with the Irish — and all of the other programs across the country.

Head Coach Marcus Freeman will have a press conference at noon. Offensive coordinator Tommy Rees and recruiting coordinator Mike Elston will have a press conference at 12:30.

UPDATE...

  • Devin Moore committed to the Florida Gators.
  • Amorion Walker flipped to Michigan.

NATIONAL LETTER OF INTENT IS IN FOR...

Aiden Gobaira DE

Gobaira was one of those early diamonds in the rough, and man are the Irish happy to have found him. Gobaira had an explosive spring and senior season to get that earned 4th star.

Steve Angeli QB

From the very beginning, Tommy Rees had his eyes on Steve Angeli and targeted the New Jersey native.

Nolan Ziegler LB

Ziegler was the second commitment of the 2022 class. He was a huge priority for the Irish, and now the talented Michigan defender will reside in South Bend.

Jaylen Sneed LB

Sneed is one of the best defender’s in the nation, and an absolute “must get” for the Irish staff. This five star player shares the same first name and position as a Notre Dame legend... and we all expect great things from him.

Bryce McFerson P

With Jay Bramblett using a grad transfer, Notre Dame needed a punter NOW and got the best one in the natio. 6-Stars — hell yes.

Josh Burnham LB

Notre Dame was able to go up north and grab ANOTHER linebacker from the Mitte state, and Burnham has all the potential to be a great one under the Golden Dome.

Aamil Wagner OL

Wagner was kind of a surprise for everyone involved — and what a surprise. Notre Dame got one of the best players in the great state of Ohio to add to its elite offensive line haul.

Donovan Hinish DL

Do you want Notre Dame to be the home of a Hinish for a decade? Of course you do... and this one might even have more potential than his captain brother.

Ashton Craig OL

The Irish were able to grab this in-state star, and help solidify their future with the interior.

Joey Tanona OL

The in-state Tanona was the first commitment of the 2022 class, and he set the tone for the elite offensive line haul.

Jayden Bellamy DB

Notre Dame grabbed Steve Angeli’s teammate on the other side of the ball to help strengthen their defensive secondary with a ton of athleticism.

Holden Staes TE

Notre Dame did so well recently with a physical tight end from Georgia (Tommy Tremble) they decided to go grab another one for TEU.

Ty Chan OL

It’s not often that the Irish go up to the northeast for a player, but Chan was an absolute must get and a HUGE commitment for Notre Dame in multiple ways. The Irish held off a late surge by Pen State for Chan’s signature.

Eli Raridon TE

Everyone raves about this Iowa tight end, and it’s not just because he is a Notre Dame legacy. Eli has all the makings of the next GREAT tight end at TEU.

Jadarian Price RB

Price was a really good commitment last winter — but after his senior year he looks more like an elite commitment. An incredibly productive back with speed and wiggle from the state of Texas... sign me up.

Billy Schrauth OL

Schrauth might be the best offensive line commitment in this class. Notre Dame had to work harder and longer for his signature, but it will all pay off in the future with this incredibly nasty talent.

Tyson Ford DL

Ford is one of those elite edge players that you just HAVE to get to be a serious playoff contender. Notre Dame has done well in Missouri, and Ford looks like another good one from the “Show Me” state.

Tobias Merriweather WR

If you’re only going to sign one WR in the class (which wasn’t the plan) it might as well be the one that’s 6’5” and ready to play right away rather than in a couple of years.

Junior Tuihalamaka LB

This bruising linebacker is generally the type of player that I remember Pete Carroll signing when he was at USC. Junior had a really nice senior year which helped solidify his ranking at the position.

Jaden Mickey DB

Mickey was the first defensive back to commit to Notre Dame’s 2022 class, and halps anchor a class that solidifies the depth and development of the secondary.

Benjamin Morrison CB

There was a plan for Notre Dame to make sure it got as much halp as it could get in the secondary to defend against these high-flying offenses, and with Morrison — they got a real defensive weapon.
