Make that three 2023 recruiting class commits for Notre Dame in as many days. Also make three commits in as many days who were headed to Penn State but switched to the Irish, likely because of Micah Shrewsberry leaving State College for South Bend. Braeden Shrewsberry and Carey Booth committed to the program earlier this week. Now, they are joined by Zionsville’s Logan Imes, who decommitted from the Nittany Lions shortly after the Irish hired Micah Shrewsberry:
Imes, a preseason pick for the Indiana Mr. Basketball honor that ultimately went to incoming Irish freshman Markus Burton, is the latest in a series of guards to call South Bend their home. What he brings that others can’t comes from the fact that he’s a combo guard. That could be critical whenever Micah Shrewsberry needs flexibility in the backcourt, crowded as it’s appearing to be.
Imes played varsity all four years at Zionsville, averaging 12.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists a game. During that time, he also had offers from Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Creighton. The Irish surely have to be happy that the offers from the two ACC rivals never were seriously considered. Now, he’s all theirs.
