We have come to the beginning of the end of the 2023 football recruiting cycle for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. It’s been a wild ride that has lasted for more than two years with offers, commitments, decommitments, and now — signings.
Wednesday is the first day of the early signing period for National Signing Day. This early period will last from Wednesday until Friday. The next opportunity that a prospect will be able to sign a letter of intent will come on the next National Signing Day on February 1. We expect the vast majority of Notre Dame’s 2023 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 regard. Fifteen states are represented by the current commitments. In this class of 26 (at present) Notre Dame has a school record 15 players scheduled to enroll early in January (last year the number was 12 and the year before that was 14).
