Notre Dame Football Recruiting: 4-Star Wisconsin OL Owen Strebig commits to the Irish

Hell big boy

On Thursday, the incredible start to Notre Dame’s 2025 recruiting class just got even better. Wisconsin 4-Star offensive lineman Owen Strebig gave his public commitment to Marcus Freeman and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The 6’8” 295 pounder from Catholic Memorial High School in Waukesha, Wisconsin, chose the Irish over a list of finalists, including the Wisconsin Badgers, USC Trojans, Florida State Seminoles, and Miami Hurricanes.

247 evaluation:

Classic big-framed tackle prospect with unverified size but enormous on the hoof. Tall and wears mass well. Frequently overwhelms smaller defenders. Shows block-finishing conviction and will take targets to the ground when opportunity arises. Creates a large orbit around the arc for edge rushers. Work in progress regarding lateral foot quickness and functional athleticism to live outside vs. high-level rushers. Naturally higher center of gravity because of height, compromising balance/body control at times. Could provide valuable roster flexibility as a tackle or jumbo guard. Also boasts deep snapping experience in the past. Owns a youth baseball background. Projects as a high-major offensive tackle prospect who looks like a right-side book-end protector, but possesses tools to develop into a left-side stalwart with continued athletic enhancement. Could become a multi-year starter with an upside beyond college.

Owen is the 14th commitment for Notre Dame’s 2025 recruiting class — which is currently ranked #1 by the 247 Team Composite Rankings. He’s also the 2nd player in this class to commit to Notre Dame from the state of Wisconsin which isn’t a very normal thing.

Good Wisconsin linemen are a national treasure, so for the Irish to swoop in and grab the best overall player from Wisconsin (regardless of position) that’s a huge deal.
