2025 WR Jaime Ffrench Calls Notre Dame Offer "Priceless"

January 2, 2023

Jaime Ffrench‍ didn’t even know he’d be at Notre Dame’s practice until the day before, so you can imagine the 2025 Florida receiver’s surprise to learn he was being offered a scholarship by the Irish during that practice.

“I didn’t really know about it until my coach told me the day before,” French said of the practice he attended in his hometown of Jacksonville as the Irish prepared for last week’s Gator Bowl. “It was an open practice, so we just went up there to check it out.

“Due to the dead period, I didn’t get to speak to them. But they had a little event, where they had the coaches go on the field. And my head coach came back to me and gave me the information.”

The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder already has more than 20 offers from schools like Florida, Florida State, Miami, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Texas A&M among several others.

Still, the Irish offer was a huge deal to him.

“It was priceless,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe it at all. I couldn’t believe it.

“There’s just something about Notre Dame, the fans, there’s just something about it.”

Ffrench said he’s “definitely” going to visit South Bend.

“I want to see around campus, see the facilities, meet the staff,” he said.

He doesn’t have a date in mind for the visit, but said it’ll certainly be this offseason.

Ffrench has already made trips to Florida, Florida State and Pitt this fall and expects to make several others in the coming months.

He still has plenty of time to make a final decision, but knows of one factor that will play a crucial role in that choice.

“Definitely the staff, definitely the coaches, how they treated each other, how they treat the players and everything like that.”
