Three names off the target list
We have removed 2020 safeties Chris Thompson and Kristian Story from the Target List as Notre Dame will turn its attention elsewhere. Thompson's recruitment had been trending this way for quite some time. Notre Dame wasn't alone in feeling Thompson was a little limited athletically, but also speed. The staff was able to watch him work out this spring and had their feelings confirmed along with multiple schools feeling the same. Story is somewhat in the same boat as Thompson. Notre Dame has a ton of tweeners between safety/rover/linebacker and Story would have fit into that group. 2020 defensive end Ben Yurosek is also off the Target List. Notre Dame will focus on Mitchell Melton to fill out the defensive line class as we've told you over the last week. Landing Jordan Botelho allows Notre Dame to be very selective at defensive line or even call it a class if Melton decided to go somewhere else.

2020 West Coast DE Locks In Notre Dame Official Visit
2020 Bakersfield Christian (Calif.) defensive end Ben Yurosek tells me he has locked in an official visit to Notre Dame for the June 21st weekend. The three-star prospect was in South Bend in March and enjoyed his time, so getting a deeper look is something he wants to do. It will be interesting to see where Braiden McGregor is in his recruitment at that point in time as both are very intriguing prospects. Yurosek is also being recruited as a tight end by some schools as well, so some similarities between he and McGregor on the field too. Junior Highlights

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.

Quick Update | 2020 DE Benjamin Yurosek
2020 Bakersfield Christian (Calif.) defensive end Ben Yurosek tells me he'll be in South Bend March 28th-30th for a visit. Notre Dame just offered the 6-foot-5, 230-pounder 11 days ago, so it's always a good sign when a kid from the West Coast wants to get to South Bend quickly. Most programs are recruiting him as a tight end, but Notre Dame and a few others see him as a defensive end. Offers: Cal, Colorado, Fresno State, Nebraska, Nevada, Notre Dame, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA and Washington. Junior Highlights

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)

Considered one of the top 250 prospects in the state. Has the physical skills to be a potential contributor at a D-1 program over the course of his collegiate career with significant development. Professional potential is low.

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.”
