Notre Dame Football added another recruit to its 2024 recruiting class on Wednesday when 3-Star offensive lineman Anthonie Knapp gave his verbal commitment during a live show on the 247 Sports YouTube channel.

The 6’4” 270 pounder from Roswell, Georgia, chose the Irish over a finalist list of; the Penn State Nittany Lions, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, North Carolina Tar Heels, and the NC State Wolfpack. Knapp developed a great relationship with Joe Rudolph while Rudolph was the offensive line coach for the Virginia Tech Hokies. It was Rudolph that got an offer out to Knapp shortly after he [Rudolph] took over as Notre Dame’s new offensive coordinator.

With its 9 commitments, Notre Dame’s 2024 recruiting class is currently ranked #3 in the country according to the 247 Team Composite Rankings.

Notre Dame still has plenty of work to do with the 2023 roster, but we can still see how 2024 is starting to develop.

You can roll your eyes and blow this off as “just a 3-Star” if you want — but it’s still fairly early, and the evaluation process could see a nice big bump for Knapp in the future. What we know, is that Rudolph wants him, so this is a big win in that regard.

FIST PUMPS UP FOR ANTHONIE!
