On Drayk Bowen's plans
2023 Notre Dame LB commit Drayk Bowen will not take his official visit to Notre Dame his weekend and if all goes as planned, he likely won't use his official next weekend. Why? Top-ranked Andrean (Ind.) won a regional baseball title last weekend and will be looking to win its 8th state title over the next two weekends with Bowen as the star of the show. What will happen is Bowen will play on Saturday night and then make the drive from Kokomo to hang out with Notre Dame official visitors this weekend. Bowen knows it's important for him to be there, even if just for a few hours. The plan will be close to the same next weekend if Andrean wins and pending what day they play the State Final. Notre Dame wanted Bowen in the class because he's one of the top linebackers in the country, but also because he's a kid other gravitate towards and has taken recruiting seriously as he's built strong relationships with many of the commits and top targets. Building and landing the nation's No. 1 class is important to Bowen and he's doing everything he can to make sure it happens - regardless of how tired his parents get driving him, his brother and sister around the Midwest for baseball/softball haha.

Drayk Bowen gets first tattoo
2023 Notre Dame LB commit Drayk Bowen got his first tattoo on Thursday afternoon. Some backstory - it was his dad that was a little hesitant about Bowen getting a tattoo - not his mom or bonus mom. To make sure Bowen was sure he wanted to get the tattoo, his father asked him to explain it. The buffalo signifies running into the storm where others run away from the storm or adversity. It has a special meaning to the Bowen household as Bowen's father added a buffalo as decor to the house after the family faced some adversity a couple years ago - and the explanation stuck with the four-star prospect. The cross represents Bowen's faith and the shamrock and name are under the cross for a reason. Bowen wanted his family's name as he believes your name is something you should be proud of and the shamrock represents his future and Irish heritage.

Coaches on the Road | 5.10
Notre Dame offensive coordinator Tommy Rees and Harry Hiestand will continue their travels through the Carolinas on Tuesday. The duo are expected at Oceanside Collegiate Academy (S.C.) to check on 2023 offensive lineman Monroe Freeling. Notre Dame has maintained a presence there this spring after Freeling made the trip to South Bend for the spring game. The Irish will also check on 2024 Dillon (S.C.) offensive lineman Josiah Thompson for the second straight week. Receivers coach Chansi Stuckey will remain in LA, while running backs coach Deland McCullough is expected to be in Houston for the second straight day. Tight ends coach Gerard Parker will remain in North Carolina to visit schools. We're told defensive coordinator Al Golden will be back in Indiana on Tuesday to check on 2023 linebacker commit Drayk Bowen. It's a bit of a weird stop as Golden was at Andrean on Friday and Bowen is more than locked in with Notre Dame. Defensive line coach Al Washington will be in Arizona to stop by Salpointe Catholic on Tuesday, which is the home of 2024 defensive end Elijah Rushing. The four-star prospect was at Notre Dame this spring and the Irish should be taken as a serious contender here. Cornerbacks coach Mike Mickens is also expected in Arizona, while Chris O'Leary will spend the day in Dallas. Special Teams coordinator Brian Mason is expected to remain in California.

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.
