Notre Dame Targets Recap Win At Louisville

September 6, 2019

Notre Dame football was on full display on Monday night as the Irish beat Louisville 35-17. Louisville had several recruits on campus, including a few names Notre Dame is keeping tabs on.
2022 Centerville (Ohio) quarterback Chase Harrison‍ camped at Notre Dame in June and liked what he saw from the Irish offense on Monday.
“I really liked it,” stated Harrison. “It is a good fit for me as a mobile pro-style quarterback. Ian book had a good game and took what the defense was giving him.”
The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder, who is expected to visit for the USC game in October, was also impressed with how Notre Dame handled a little adversity on the road.
“I loved it," said Harrison. "They kept their cool and didn’t panic. The defensive coordinator made a good adjustment to keep (Puma) Pass in the pocket after his two scores. Then the was game over."
Harrison holds early offers from Louisville, Penn and Toledo.
2021 Bowling Green (Ky.) tight end Jordan Dingle‍ made the short trip to Cardinal Stadium on Monday and was thrilled to see how Notre Dame utilized Tommy Tremble and Brock Wright.
“It was really good," Dingle said of the game. "I liked how they allowed the tight end to make big plays.”
The Kentucky native was also well aware Tremble was playing in his first game and took it as a huge positive the staff and Ian Book put trust into him to go make crucial plays.
"That was great,” said Dingle. “It just shows they put the best out there that they feel will make a difference.”
Dingle was on campus in June for camp, but hasn’t received an offer from Notre Dame just yet. The Irish are a school he’s keeping close tabs on as he’s friends with Notre Dame freshman Jacob Lacey. Dingle holds offers from Appalachian State, Georgia Tech, Kent State, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio State, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, Toledo, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, Western Kentucky and Yale.
2021 South Warren (Kentucky) defensive back Jantzen Dunn‍ turned a few heads at Notre Dame’s Irish Invasion camp in June and was at the game on Monday. The 6-foot-2, 170-pounder saw some similarities to how his team started last year and how the Irish started.
"It really showed great leadership from the coaches and players," Dunn stated. "When we didn’t start well last season, no one was rattled. Just believe in what we worked on all week and be disciplined."
Notre Dame did give up 14 points on the first two drives, but Dunn was impressed with how Clark Lea’s defense responded over the final three quarters.
"I thought the defense just got stronger throughout the game," explained Dunn. "It was great seeing my guy Jacob Lacey playing big minutes. Great defensive backs and a great showing for the first game. I feel like they will continue to get better and will be a tough team to score on.”
Speaking of Lacey, Dunn was fired up to see his former teammate get a ton of playing time in his first game in his home state.
"That was incredible," said Dunn. "Hard to imagine I was just playing next to him last season. Jacob put a lot of work in and it shows. His leadership and work ethic left a huge impression on me."
Western Kentucky is the only program to offer Dunn as of now, but I would expect his offer list to grow in the coming weeks.
