On Friday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish finally got some good recruiting news after a week of gut punches (that still aren’t over). 2024 running back Aneyas Williams announced that he is committing to Notre Dame over a strong offer list that includes the Alabama Crimson Tide, Tennessee Volunteers, Ohio State Buckeyes, Oregon Ducks, and many others.

247 Evaluation:

Has had an excellent high school career and been dominant against the competition. Compact, sturdy build. All-around back who can catch the ball and line up as a slot. Shows vision and acceleration as a runner. Is not just a pass catcher as far as screens and swing passes, but can actually run downfield routes and wins contested balls despite not being a taller target. Shift and can make defenders miss. Solid, but not elite top end speed right now. Can contribute as a return man also. Should be a very good college player because he can be moved around and used in a variety of ways to help an offense.

Williams is the seventh commitment in this 2024 class for Notre Dame. With the commitment of Williams, Notre Dame moves to #2 in the 247 Team Composite Rankings.

With the decommitment of Dylan Edwards in the 2023 class, and the soon-to-be-decommitted Jayden Limar — Notre Dame needs at least two running backs in this class, and Williams is a fantastic grab.
