Safe Travels | ND Prospects Visiting Elsewhere | 4/12
Notre Dame may be having a relatively quiet recruiting weekend for its spring game, but other programs are using their inter-squad exhibitions to have larger ones. And many of those schools will be hosting some Irish targets. Ohio State is having its spring game this weekend and will have several athletes on campus including 2021 Maryland offensive lineman Landon Tengwall, who named Notre Dame his leader following a visit to South Bend last month. Other recent Notre Dame visitors who will be in Columbus this weekend include 2021 offensive lineman Harisen Miller, 2021 linebacker Yanni Karlaftis, 2020 running back Michael Drennen II and 2020 defensive end Darrion Henry. Oklahoma has shifted its spring game from Saturday to tonight because of weather. Like the Buckeyes, the Sooners will be hosting some recent Notre Dame visitors. 2020 offensive lineman Jimmy Christ and 2020 cornerback Ryan Watts were both in South Bend on officials last week. 2020 running back Chris Tyree was at Notre Dame a couple weeks ago and is scheduled to be in Norman this weekend along with 2020 offensive lineman Roger Rosengarten, 2020 safety Lathan Ransom and 2020 defensive back Dontae Manning. Texas A&M has also moved its spring game from Saturday to Friday and they will also be hosting several targets, including some on the Notre Dame radar, perhaps none more so than 2020 wide receiver Maliq Carr. Other recruits expected in College Station this weekend include 2020 defensive end Alfred Collins, 2020 receiver Troy Omeire and 2021 defensive ends Tunmise Adeleye and Landon Jackson. Meanwhile, Texas has decided not to shift the date of its spring game, which could allow for prospects like Omeire and Collins to attend both. The Longhorns are also expected to host 2020 running back Bijan Robinson, 2020 offensive lineman Chad Lindberg and 2021 offensive lineman Tommy Brockermeyer. After a great visit to Notre Dame last weekend, 2020 cornerback Jalen Kimber will be at Florida this weekend for his last unofficial visit before planning officials. 2020 Washington, D.C., athlete Mordecai McDaniel was also in South Bend last weekend and will also be in Gainesville this weekend. 2020 running back Kyle Edwards is scheduled to be at Alabama as is top 2021 tight end Cane Berrong. 2020 tight end/defensive end Ben Yurosek was at Notre Dame a couple weeks ago and is expected to be at Washington this weekend.

2020 S Added To Official Visitor List
2020 St. John's College (D.C.) safety Mordecai McDaniel will take his official visit to Notre Dame this weekend. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder is one of the most interesting athletes in the 2020 class as he's also one of the fastest. McDaniel 6.54 55m earlier this spring and has a 6.53 as a personal best. Alabama, Arizona, Duke, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, Tennessee and Wisconsin are a few of the programs who have offered the three-star prospect.

INTEL | Visit Weekend Preview From Mike
From Mike: I did some digging today about the official visitors coming in this weekend. Here are some things I found out. With Jimmy Christ, I was told both his parents will be with him on the trip. I think being comfortable with the players will be real key on this visit. I don't expect him to decide in the very near future. ND should be in this race, and a good visit will put them in good shape. With Andrew Gentry, it's almost like recruiting a 2022 kid because he does plan to take a mission. ND still likes him and is recruiting him heavily. Both his Mom and Dad will be on the visit. I was told his Mom has never been, so it's a big visit for the family. On Jordan Johnson, I'm told he's bringing a big extended family on this visit. Mom, Stepdad, Dad and Stepmom and some others as well. Again, feeling comfortable with the players will be key. I don't think he will commit on the visit. It may take a bit before he makes a final decision. On Braiden McGregor, it's much of the same. It's all about the feeling he'll get with the players. I don't expect him to commit real soon. With Jalen Kimber, I think ND could be one of about 20 right now. Kimber and his father are coming on an unofficial visit. They're just trying to find out a lot about a lot of schools, but we've heard he's very interested. Is he more of a Bama/OU kid or an ND kid? That will be the interesting thing. Like the others, it's all about how well he fits in with the culture of ND and the coaches. On Rylie Mills, I think this visit is going to be real important. Is the load at ND too hard? I think he wants to know as much as he can about being both a student and an athlete at ND, so ND will have to hit the right buttons here. On Ryan Watts, it's his visit first. Both his parents are coming, and so that's a good sign. There is a very long way to go here on this, however. Kind of a feeling out for both sides. ND does like him a lot as a player. I asked about Hawaii linebacker Jordan Botelho. I was told he and his family are very interest in ND. This will be a very important trip for ND. With a good visit, ND should right in the race with all the top schools. Family very interested in all that ND offers. Also, heard 2020 Maryland athlete Mordecai McDaniel is planning to come on an official visit. We haven't confirmed this directly with McDaniel yet, but heard he is coming. Heard both of his parents are coming. We'll have to see how it goes. Again, until they visit, you just don't know what to expect.

National Average Rating

The National Average Rating is a proprietary formula that calculates an industry-wide aggregate rating for each recruiting prospect. The formula includes publicly listed grades, scores, ratings and rankings by national recruiting services, along with a Irish Sports Daily rating. Combining the data provides a rating for each prospect, which is then normalized to fit the Irish Sports Daily Rating 100-point scale.

The intent of this rating is to provide Irish Sports Daily readers with a comprehensive snapshot of how individual prospects rank nationally.

90-98: Elite state prospect (Four-star)

Considered one of the best 30-40 prospects in the state and a top 250 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to be a major early contributor at the collegiate level with high professional potential.

80-89: Quality prospect (Three-star)

Considered one of the best 100 prospects in the state and a top 500 national prospect. Displays the physical skills to develop into a contributor over the course of his college career. Has the ability to become a professional prospect over time with development.

70-79: Solid prospect (Two-star)

Staff Predictions

The predictions represent which school each staff member believes will ultimately sign the recruit, and the confidence meter represents his level of certainty in that outcome.

Example #1

If the predicted school is Notre Dame and confidence is set to “High”, then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Notre Dame and I feel very certain about that.”

Example #2

If the predicted school is “Alabama” and confidence is set to “Low,” then the staff member is saying “I believe that this recruit will ultimately sign with Alabama, but I’m not very certain about that.”
