Top 2026 S Bralan Womack Looking Forward to Notre Dame Camp & Visit

Notre Dame will host one of the nation’s top safety prospects for Irish Invasion next month as 2026 Hartfield Academy (Miss.) star Bralan Womack‍ will make the trip to South Bend. 

It will be the Womack’s first visit to Notre Dame, but the composite five-star prospect already feels like he somewhat knows the school. Marty Biagi has built a strong rapport with him over the last few months and he’s trained with one of Notre Dame’s top defensive players.

“I’m very excited, especially after Coach Marty came down,” Womack told ISD. “We have built a relationship. I’m pretty excited to get up there. A friend of mine is at Notre Dame, Ben Morrison, so it’ll be good to pop in on him and have a good day at camp.” 

Womack and Morrison train at Shutdown U with Will Sullivan in Phoenix and the Mississippi native has been more than willing to learn from Morrison. 

“It’s been a great time getting all the tools I can get,” explained Womack. “If I can get all the tools right now from the first DB taken off the board next year, then I’ll be set. Having the tools in high school of a future first-rounder is good to have. 

“I’m just trying to learn as much as I can from Ben. He’s a great role model. It makes you want to look up to someone like him. Great person off the field and a great personality.” 

Biagi has impressed the Womack family and will have the chance to spend some quality time with them during the visit in June. Womack has gravitated towards Biagi’s coaching style, but their personalities have also meshed well. 

“He’s not chill, but he makes it real-life and game situations,” Womack said of Biagi. “He said he’ll coach you up, but once the play is in, he doesn’t tell you anything else. In the game, you can’t be screaming out the play and cause chaos. He puts you in game-like situations to see how you react, and I like that. 

“From the second we started communicating, it was Notre Dame is the best school and here’s why.” 

Entering the summer, Womack holds offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M. 

Finding a better offer list would be tough, especially with trips to Notre Dame and Ohio State on the horizon.

“It’s been a blessing,” said Womack, who finished 2023 with 51 tackles and seven interceptions. “I can’t really put it into words. Kids way younger than me would do anything for an offer list like this. I’m just blessed. I’m continuing to work day in and day out. There are still more offers I would like to get, but I have to work for it the same way I did for the offers I have.” 

This summer, Womack will have the chance to prove he’s one of the best defensive backs in the country as he’ll participate in the Under Armour Future 50 camp and then the Rivals Five-Star Challenge. 

“It’s a great opportunity for me,” Womack explained. “People talk about the weak district I’m in, the weak competition I’m going against, but now we have the Top 50 players and everyone out there is great. We’re going to see who is tougher and who will dial it up the most. This is a great opportunity for me to prove that I am and deserve to be the No. 1 safety in the country.” 

The recruiting hype machine hasn’t necessarily been a surprise for Womack as the Hartfield Academy staff put him on a path to success and to be a couple of steps ahead of his peers. 

“I was expecting it after the season I had last year,” stated Womack. “My defensive coordinator and my DB coach trusted me at an early age. I started as a freshman, and as a sophomore, I was the captain of the defense and made all the calls and adjustments. 

“I feel they put me into the spotlight and I didn’t back away from anything. I was ready to play.” 

It’s also very clear Womack really wants to earn offers from Notre Dame and Ohio State. Some players want to add offers for clout, but Womack has a legitimate interest in both schools and would have zero problem leaving SEC country for school. 

“I just want to play at a program that’s willing to build me up on and off the field and, at the end of the day, win a national championship,” Womack explained. “It doesn’t really matter where I play - North, East, South or West. I’ve never really cared where I’ve played football.” 

Womack is very aware that 2025 quarterback Deuce Knight made the decision to leave The Sip for South Bend, but it wouldn’t play a factor in his decision. That said, Womack knows his 7-on-7 teammate would be there with him if Notre Dame were the choice. 

“At the end of the day, I can’t let anyone else determine my path or my destination,” Womack said. “God knows my destination, not me, not my family. Deuce might give me a push and try to lure me to Notre Dame, but it’s going to be where my heart feels at home.” 

Womack and Knight will compete together at the OT7 finals in early June, but both will also be working out at Irish Invasion, which presents the opportunity for bragging rights. 

“If I pick him off,” laughed Womack. “He’s not going to hear the end of it.”
