Thursday five-star recruits on the Notre Dame campus

Notre Dame is recruiting at an extremely high level, so it’s not all that surprising to see some elite talent on campus on a casual Thursday. Here are some notes on a couple of visitors who took a look at Fighting Irish this week.

St. Louis (Mo.) University five-star high school receiver Ryan Wingo, recruit no. 4 overall in the class of 2024 and the No. 1 in his position according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, is today at Notre Dame. The 6-2, 198 pounds contains over 30 scholarship offers including those from Notre Dame, Florida, Iowa, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, Texas, Texas A&M and many other.

Notre Dame has already hosted Wingo on campus. Staff offered him as a freshman in high school, but things really got better with the arrival of the receivers coach Chansi Stuckey. Both Stuckey and the offensive coordinator Tommy Rees they’ve made it a priority ever since the two started tagging the receiver position and Wingo is sure to be recruited extremely hard going forward. The trio of Stuckey, Rees and head coach Marco Freeman will give Notre Dame a real chance here.

Jefferson (Ga.) Five-star high school linebacker Sammy Brown is at Notre Dame on Thursday. The 6-2, 215-pounder is ranked as the No. 6 overall in the country, No. 1 at national level and recruitment n. 2 in Georgia from the class of 2024 according to the 247Sports Composite Recruiting Rankings. Brown has over 20 scholarship offers including those from Notre Dame, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, and many more.

In March, Irish Illustrated and 247Sports reported that Brown would be visiting Notre Dame. He said he wanted to get to South Bend and supported him by showing up this week.

“It will be my first time up there,” Brown said of the trip to Notre Dame when we reported the visit in March. “That is a great school too. Not only are they good at football, they also have some crazy academics. I didn’t know that until I talked to the coaches. Their academics are really good and it’s a really fun place to get up at.

“He looks like a really good guy,” Brown said of the coach Marco Freeman. “He’s a linebacker oriented person, so it’s really nice to get up there and talk to the people who played the position and the ones who will help me improve in the position.”

Additionally, we are told that Baltimore (Md.) Gilman class 2024 two-way athlete Dejuan Lane is at Notre Dame on Thursday. Its list of offerings includes Akron, Boston College, Buffalo, Duke, Georgia, Louisville, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Penn State, Virginia Tech, and many more. The 6-3, 195-pound is projected as a linebacker to the next level, but he can play a variety of positions.

Warner Robins (Ga.) Northside class of 2024 four-star safety Ricardo Jones, America’s 53rd player ever, had to visit Notre Dame. However, due to another engagement, the 200-pound 6-3 was forced to postpone the trip to a future date. Notre Dame will continue to recruit Jones to make a move in recruiting the coveted prospect.
