Final 2023 ISD Fab 50
ISD's Jamie Uyeyama reveals his top-50 prospects in the 2023 recruiting cycle. It's much of the same, but a little bit different for Notre Dame when it came to recruiting the top tier players in this class

Peyton Bowen Update 11am
I expect 2023 five-star safety Peyton Bowen to end up signing with Oklahoma at some point today.What I can tell you is Notre Dame fans have the staff they have wanted for years. This was an ordeal that started at 2:30 pm on Wednesday and they were on it for almost the next 12 hours. I think some have dismissed the fact they stated they were going to fight for kids - but over the last week, if you can't see it, then I'm not sure what to tell you. They aren't going to win them all, but the effort and will to stick their head into every corner of the country will pay off over time. That's all I have to say on it.

6 Thoughts on a Thursday
Thoughts on Marcus Freeman shrinking the talent gap between Notre Dame and the top teams in college football with another class loaded with blue-chip talent, on whether or not ND should play the same game as others to land 5-star talent, on which freshmen might make an early impact, and more

The Latest | Peyton Bowen (Wednesday 8:15PM)
Yes.It has been over eight hours since 2023 five-star safety Peyton Bowen committed to Oregon leaving Notre Dame at the alter at a restaurant in Texas. Well - the hours since then have been more than interesting as Oregon has yet to receive Bowen's signing on his national letter of intent. There isn't much to say at this point other than it's a fluid situation. It's not a secret at Notre Dame, Oregon and Oklahoma are more than aware Bowen has not sent his paperwork to the Ducks. I do know Bowen hasn't been locked into staring at his parents at the dining room table for the last eight hours. He has taken a few hours to clear his head and collect himself.I've said all along the kid is being pulled in many different directions by those closest to him and if that's not clear at this point, I don't know what to tell you. There is lot of unfounded speculation out there and there is no way to address it all, so I won't get into that other than much of what is out there isn't accurate. At this point, no decision has been made and not sure there is an immediate timeline on when this will get done other than he has a deadline of Friday. (Pray for us)Will obviously keep you up to date.And just to set the record straight as some felt my sources weren't accurate - I have more confidence in them than at any point in this recruitment. Does that mean Bowen is going to sign with Notre Dame? No. But in a recruitment of hourly twists and turns, I have full confidence in them as I feel ISD has provided the most accurate and in-depth facts in this roller coaster.

On Peyton Bowen
Notre Dame fought for Peyton Bowen and they fought hard, but it's safe to say NIL became a factor in the end as some in his camp pushed that above everything else. As we tried to tell folks for the last week, Bowen had two finalists: Notre Dame and Oregon, which were the only hats on the table during his announcement on Wednesday. The last two weeks were the only time folks around Bowen felt he started to waver in his commitment to Notre Dame. In fact, a week ago, it seemed extremely unlikely Bowen would sign with Notre Dame as he had all but decommitted from the Irish. And yes, Notre Dame wasn't sure Freeman and company were even going to get an in-home visit last Thursday.Oregon had left the Bowen house and Oklahoma had wrapped up a call when Bowen got on the phone with Chris O'Leary before talking to Marcus Freeman. Whatever was said proved to be significant as Freeman, O'Leary, Al Golden, Mike Mickens and Chansi Stuckey were in the Bowen home the next night. As reported, the mood was light and Bowen ended up playing video games with the assistants as Freeman spoke to his parents. Friday proved to be an important day in this recruitment as Bowen had a big decision to make. Oklahoma had set up an in-home visit for Saturday while Oregon wanted him to take an official visit for the weekend. Bowen passed on the trip to Eugene and told head coach Dan Lanning he wasn't going to make it, which set up a huge in-home for Oklahoma on Saturday evening. It was a long in-home visit as the Sooners staff thought they got the last crack at Bowen. But - Notre Dame got the last in-home on Sunday evening. Those who follow recruiting might remember 2023 Ohio State commit Luke Montgomery posting an in-home visit photo with Ryan Day during the dead period at the end of November before the conference championships. Notre Dame utilized the same rule, which meant Freeman and his staff could get into the home once again as Bowen was a commit and had been admitted, approved and his deposit was received by the university. We're told it was a three-hour visit and it was kept light despite the stressful time. Bowen played video games with the staff while Freeman was able to communicate the need for the elite safety, but also how he would be cared for in South Bend. It was over the weekend Bowen was able to process and slow things down as Oregon and Oklahoma came hard and quick at him with all-out pushes over the last week. On Tuesday morning, the Bowen family had essentially a final meeting where it seemed like Notre Dame would be the choice, but clearly something happened in the last 12-16 hours that sold him on heading to Oregon. There wasn't anything more Notre Dame could do here. They recruited him harder and longer than every school and laid out his options for NIL once he arrived at Notre Dame, but it simply wasn't enough for some in his family.

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.
