How have the Irish done on the recruiting trail in California this year? Pretty good.

Bad News on Monday's Visit from Premium Sports LA
The group carrying a few Notre Dame targets from California will NOT make it to Notre Dame for a visit on Monday as expected. I'm told the group had to cancel as they would have missed their flight back to California if they made the stop. Definitely unfortunate for Notre Dame, but we're told 2021 CB DJ Harvey will now set up a visit to get back out to see Notre Dame on his own. It will be interesting to see what happens with 2021 ATH Jaylin Smith as I would have been somewhat surprised if he had left Notre Dame without an offer today. (Assuming he's good academically)

ISD Intel: Recruiting
The big OL weekend is coming up. I wanted to get a feel for how ND might approach this. What I gathered is this.I'm told ND would take any of them who would want to commit, and they'd have a hard time saying no if all five wanted to commit. They really like all of them that much. On David Abiara, I'm told he's definitely coming back. I know they're trying to get him for that big weekend, but he may not make it in until April. Regardless, he's very interested and ND would love to have him. Very, very high on their list.On Jason Onye, he's another that is visiting, and ND feels they have a really good shot at him. He's kind of an Ade Ogundeji type in that he's really raw, but has some great attributes. He doesn't need to be great right away, and they feel he has a lot of potential. The visit will be very important, but I'm told he's very much a ND kid. DJ Harvey is visiting with that big group for 7-on-7, and ND recently offered him. They don't know a ton about him. Is he 5-10 or shorter? I think that's the big question for him. Jaylin Smith is a guy who has a shot to get offered and will be visiting soon. Again, it likely depends on how he looks physically and his height.At RB, it will be interesting. Seems Ohio State and ND are after the same 3 guys.But, kind of in reverse order because of who each side feels they have a good shot at. For instance, Ohio State probably has the best shot at TreVeyon Henderson. ND is working really hard to get him on campus again, but nothing yet. They're really trying to get him to visit this spring. Ohio State seems to be out front.OSU likes Will Shipley, but haven't had a lot of traction with him.Both ND and Ohio State are battling hard for Donovan Edwards. No idea where this is headed yet, but ND very much in the race. Michigan will be the other team in this, but those three seem to be the running backs, along with Corey Kiner, who ND host on a visit this next month. I asked about two key WRs. Jayden Thomas and Troy Stellato.I'm told Jayden Thomas likely won't visit until the summer because he's heavily involved in baseball, but ND fans shouldn't be worried about that. He likes ND a lot.I'm also told ND is trying to nail down a day for Troy Stellato. A visit is much in the works. Just not nailed down just yet. They're trying to work out a date, but Stellato does plan to visit in the next two months and probably March. We do know Aaron Armitage is visiting soon as well. I'm told ND will likely take him if he wants to commit. I asked about Linebacker as well, and it's still a bit up in the air. I do know for a fact that TX native Morice Blackwell likes ND a lot, and ND is trying really hard to get him up very soon. His parents seem very keen and interested, and they're working on that. He's not rated as high in rankings as some, but ND has him ranked very high on their rankings. I do as well. Very good player.That's it for now. Mike

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.

Irish Sports Daily Rating

99-100: Elite national prospect (Five-star)

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.”
