When it rains, it pours, and that’s exactly what is happening right now for Notre Dame recruiting. A few days ago, elite linebacker prospect Jaylen Sneed from South Carolina joined the 2022 Irish recruiting class.
On Thursday, Brian Kelly and his staff went west to Arizona, gaining a commitment from Benjamin Morrison, a 6-foot, 175-pound cornerback.
Morrison becomes the 19th commitment of the class and solidifies its ranking as one of the best in the country. Although the current haul is very defense oriented, what Kelly is putting together this cycle should be looked at as very special.
Morrison is viewed as one of the best at his position in the country; his offer list shows that. Alabama, Oregon, LSU, Oklahoma and many others wanted his pledge, but once again, the national pull of the Blue and Gold won out in a very highly contested recruiting race.
This class is shaping up to be a foundation for years to come, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Marcus Freeman gets yet another high-level prospect added to his growing, impressive unit.
