On Keon Keeley's Decommitment
2023 Berkeley Prep (Fla.) defensive end commit Keon Keeley has officially decommitted from Notre Dame. It's a move that's not surprising and one Notre Dame had fought through many storms to get to this point. A few things. - I continue to believe if this was up to Keon, Notre Dame is where he wants to be at the end of the day. He's seen how he fits at Notre Dame and how he doesn't fit at other programs. - I don't believe this was up to Keon at the end of the day. I think folks around him have gotten into his head on various topics and have put a ton of soft pressure on him over the last six months. Is it right or wrong? That's up to you to decide. I'm not sure people can fully grasp how much pressure some kids are under when choosing a school as it's tough to deal with as everyone wants to get into your head. To this point, Keeley's recruitment was probably a little more intense than most in some areas and it's definitely been weighing heavy on his shoulders, which is unfortunate for Notre Dame as the five-star is everything a head coach could want in a recruit. - I also believe it was a situation where Keeley has somewhat isolated himself from many people in his life as he deals with this pressure. It's not healthy, but I do think decommitting will help free him up in that aspect. - Notre Dame understood they would likely have some drama by taking early commitments. They were fine being the leader and fighting for elite kids. That's college football. I also believe they worked with Keeley (and Peyton Bowen) as it related to their visits to other programs as long as they were unofficial visits. As you saw with Justyn Rhett, once a prospect set up an official visit, Notre Dame no longer considered him committed. Following Keeley's visit to Alabama, it became clear official visits were in play and Notre Dame stood its ground - even with perhaps the nation's top prospect. Notre Dame isn't willing to compromise its class for one player. If you look back to a few years ago, Clemson did a similar thing with the nation's top player in Korey Foreman. The five-star edge wanted to take official visits and Clemson has a strong stance on that for its commits. Foreman decommitted and then took his visits before eventually signing with USC. Notre Dame has been willing to play the game, but this is also a firm statement moving forward. - As it relates to Notre Dame's recruiting board, they have been evaluating defensive ends since the start of July when the staff broke off for vacation. They have offered new names to play with Keeley - and now fill that void. Notre Dame will go after other defensive ends aggressively from this point forward. - LSU commit Joshua Mickens is a name we've spoken about and folks have asked about. Notre Dame has been in contact, but Mickens hasn't really shown any interest in backing off his commitment to LSU. It's one Notre Dame should stay on as the longer it gets from his commitment, then there is potential interest could pick up. - Another name Notre Dame has dug around on is Tennessee commit Chandavian Bradley, who was the first recruit to visit South Bend following the COVID dead period ending last summer. That said, I believe Bradley is more than happy with his commitment to Tennessee. - Samuel M'Pemba has been a name on the board for years, but it seems like Georgia and Miami have a sizeable lead on Notre Dame at this point. Notre Dame could be third, but at this point, it doesn't look like they will make up enough ground. We'll see what happens if he shows up on his official visit for the Clemson game. And as always, we'll keep you updated on the latest as it relates to Keeley and the board moving forward.pic.twitter.com/hct6RYAdCB— 𝐊𝐞𝐨𝐧 𝐊𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐲 5⭐️ (@keon_keeley) August 18, 2022 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Guinness Pocket T-Shirt

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.

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.”
