Notre Dame Official Meets Expectations for 2022 WR Major Everhart

September 19, 2021

2022 Tascosa (Texas) receiver Major Everhart‍ has become a big-time priority for the Notre Dame staff and the speedster was in South Bend this weekend for his official visit. 

The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder wrapped up his visit high on the Irish program and Everhart knew the weekend was going to be great from the second he walked down the tunnel at Notre Dame Stadium. 

"It went great,” Everhart told ISD. “It met my expectations and everything. Walking into the stadium and looking up through the tunnel and seeing all the fans was crazy. Seeing how excited they were for Notre Dame was awesome." 

Everhart had taken official visits to Baylor, TCU and Texas Tech in June, so there was a bar set by the in-state programs. Notre Dame gave him plenty to think about if he decides to head out of state as Everhart was still raving about the game day on Sunday evening. 

"Notre Dame competes very well with the other schools I've been to,” stated Everhart. “It was electrifying. It was 10 out of 10." 

The weekend also provided the chance for Everhart to meet with the Notre Dame staff face-to-face for the first time. 

Del Alexander, Tommy Rees and Brian Kelly all left a lasting impression on the Tascosa star and Everhart definitely approved of how he’d fit into the offense. 

"They're a bunch of genuine guys,” explained Everhart. “They keep it real with you. They told me how they saw me, which was as a hybrid and a playmaker type of guy. I had a great talk with them. 

"Personally, I think we clicked. I think I clicked with all the coaching staff. I like them a lot.” 

The three-star prospect was also somewhat caught off guard when he learned most of Notre Dame’s players are from out of state, which is almost the polar opposite of Baylor, TCU and Texas Tech. 

"I was with three of the freshmen receivers. Deion (Colzie), JT (Jayden Thomas) and Lorenzo (Styles),” said Everhart. "The kids there are a bunch of guys like myself coming in from other places. They're not from there, so it was kind of a surprise.”

Styles made a good impression on Everhart as the two connected well during the visit.

"He definitely a great guy,” Everhart stated. “He didn't seem shy and he was telling me all about Notre Dame. He opened up to me and started talking to me. He's a great dude." 

Everhart is now in the home stretch of his recruitment as he has one official visit left, but he’s still undecided if he will end up using it. 

"I still have one more visit left, but I'm not sure I'll take that or not,” said Everhart. "I'll make my decision before the season ends and before signing day.

"I'm looking at relationships with the coaches and making sure I feel at home at the school. The environment and the community are also important."
