2025 LB Target Noah Mikhail Hoping To Return To Notre Dame

March 1, 2023

Noah Mikhail‍ visited Notre Dame for the Clemson game last season, when the 2025 California linebacker picked up an offer from the Irish.

Now, he is looking to get back to campus this spring.

The highly-touted prospect has made a few visits this spring and is thinking about others that he will make. 

“I've been out to a few schools,” he says. “I've been out to a few schools. I'm at Texas this weekend, and then I think LSU the next weekend, but other than that, right now I don't think I have anything set in stone yet.”

The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder has been down to Texas before, but didn’t have the chance to get too in-depth.

“I didn't get a bunch of time there, but I am trying to get down there again to see how I like it,” he says.

Mikhail has stayed in touch with the Irish coaching staff throughout the recruiting process, and the staff is looking to get him back on campus for spring ball. 

“They are trying to get me down to see a spring ball practice and see the full campus,” the California linebacker says.

Mikhail is certainly hoping to get back.

“I’ve got to look at my schedule, look at openings that I got and I would love to get down there,” he says.

He’s interested more than the football at Notre Dame.

“It's just history,” the linebacker says about why he is interested in the Irish. “It’s a great school, and the origins of football are right there.”

Besides the Texas and LSU visits, the Bonita High School standout has many other visits he wants to make before he narrows down his decision.

“I'm trying to get down to Notre Dame and back down to Arkansas,” he says. “I'll probably get back up to USC, UCLA, and Washington, a few of those schools.”

The California standout is not close to decision mode, but he knows what he is looking for in a school.

“Obviously, you’ve got to fit in,” he tells ISD. “The relationships are a huge part, but also being able to see yourself at that place and it just having family culture.

The highly-recruited 2025 linebacker says that he will probably narrow down his decision in the next year.
