Recruitment Rundown
Notre Dame flipped Aupiu late in the process from UCLA and never looked back. The three-star prospect had been in contact with the Irish staff well before he flipped his commitment as he waited until he was accepted to Notre Dame to publicly announce his change of plans. 

ISD Expert Jamie Uyeyama
Watching his junior film, he is all caps RAW in so many areas of his game. He’s definitely a prospect that I would have loved to watch senior film on because he clearly has great physical tools, but had not put the pieces together on the field yet. 

Raw pass rushers with great physical gifts take time to develop, but his motor makes me believe he has a shot to be a very good player eventually for the Irish. It may be a three-year journey to get there once he is in the program, though.

He has the potential to develop into a starter for Notre Dame. He wouldn’t have been a take if that wasn’t the case. He also is going to be someone who will need to put in quite a bit of work with his craft to get there.

Favorite ISD Quote
"The culture is just second to none there. It's obviously a Catholic school, but in total, the football culture is insane."
