Top 2025 OL Prospect Owen Strebig Previews Notre Dame Return

September 22, 2023

Owen Strebig‍ enjoyed his trips to Notre Dame this spring and summer, but the 2025 Wisconsin offensive lineman is really looking forward to seeing South Bend in the fall and he’ll get just that chance on Saturday, when he returns for the Irish’s home showdown versus Ohio State.

“I'm excited,” Strebig tells Irish Sports Daily “I'm just really excited to see the Notre Dame atmosphere during the game day…I'm excited to see a full campus and a full stadium.”

The 6-foot-8, 290-pounder is one of the Irish’s top targets in the class and Marcus Freeman, Joe Rudolph and Gerad Parker have stayed in regular contact.

“It's been very constant,” Strebig says. “I would say I hear from them probably every single day.

“I definitely know that they care about me and they keep telling me they think I'd be a perfect fit there.”

Strebig won’t make a final decision for at least a couple months, but says he does see what the Irish coaches are talking about.

“I really like Coach Rudolph, Coach Freeman and Coach Parker, so I can definitely see myself fitting in there,” he says. “I obviously enjoy the vibe of campus, so I'm just excited to get back and see it during fall time.”

Strebig and fellow 2025 Irish offensive line target Matty Augustine‍ have become close after taking trips to Madison and South Bend together over the summer.

“Definitely,” Strebig says. “That's my guy. Obviously we hung out there and we were together at Wisconsin and spent more time together.”

Augustine will be in South Bend this weekend as well.

“I'm excited to see him again,” says Strebig.

Strebig was back at Wisconsin for its home opener earlier this month and will be at USC toward the end of November.

“I really like USC,” he says. “I really like Coach (Lincoln) Riley and Coach (Josh) Henson. Once again, I just want to see campus during school time and during a game day.”

Strebig is staying patient and isn’t even sure when he’ll make his final decision.

“Right now, I just think it's too early,” he says. “I really want to make sure I make the right decision because when I commit to a school, that'll be the school I have a complete trust in and my family trusts.”
