Notre Dame recruiting: Top prospect’s impressive long jump

Just a few weeks back 2024 wide receiver and Notre Dame commitment Cam Williams was bumped up to a five-star rating. The impressive wide receiver has been visited by the Notre Dame coaching staff for a basketball game earlier this year.

Williams stars in another sport as well. The track and field star is one of the best long jumpers in the country. This week the five-star prospect had an impressive leap of 24 feet, 3.75 inches. For perspective, Ja’Marr Chase, the former LSU-turned Bengals star leaped 24 feet, 2.25 inches when he won an individual state championship in high school. Check out video of the leap below.

Williams is listed at 6 feet, 2 inches, 175 pounds and is finishing his junior year at Glenbard South High School in the western Chicago suburbs. He is one of three wide receiver commits in Notre Dame’s 2024 recruiting class.

Personally I love seeing a mega-athlete star at three sports in high school. Yeah, he’s already got his Division I scholarship, but that doesn’t slow him from competing. In a world where it seems like so many athletes want to isolate into one sport, I thoroughly enjoy seeing a young man compete in everything he can during his high school years.
