Notre Dame Football Recruiting

2020 WR Izayah Cummings Remains Interested In Irish

January 18, 2019

Izayah Cummings‍ was in South Bend for Notre Dame for the Irish’s home finale against Florida State back in November and the 2020 Kentucky wide receiver remains in contact with the staff.

“Just to keep working,” Cummings said of what the Notre Dame coaches have told him. “You can get an offer, but you just have to keep working.”

The 6-foot-4, 208-pounder from Louisville already has offers from Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, Purdue, Indiana, Missouri, Duke and Virginia among others.

“Everything is going great,” said Cummings. “I’ve got a couple schools that want me to come to their junior days and all.

“I’m planning already to go to Purdue this week, Louisville Feb. 2nd, Kentucky Jan. 26th, and possibly Notre Dame Feb. 23rd.”

If he does get back to South Bend, he’ll be looking to spend more time with the coaching staff.

“The only coach I really got to see was the wide receivers coach,” he said of his first trip.

Right now, the Male High School standout is finishing up rehab after suffering a knee injury last fall.

“I’m doing training like every day and then I have another MRI in February,” he said. “It’s just a challenge I’m accepting. Injuries are going to happen all of the time, so I’m just going to keep going through it.”

Opportunity will be key in Cummings’ final decision.

“Making sure I can have an immediate impact on the team anywhere on the field,” he said of one key factor in his choice. “I just want to play.” 

Cummings plans to sign during the Early Signing Period this December.
