Notre Dame hasn’t had a whole lot of bigger defensive targets in recent years than 2024 defensive lineman Justin Scott, both figuratively and literally. The five-star defensive tackle from St. Ignatius in Chicago checks in at 6-5, 310 pounds and requires a bulldozer to move.
Scott is one of the top recruits regardless of position in the ’24 class and has been in the news a good amount of late. Earlier in the month, Scott announced his top-eight schools that included Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, USC, Michigan, Alabama, Miami, and Colorado. Shortly after he announced he’d be making his commitment to a college program on his birthday, January 31.
To top things off, two-time reigning national champion Georgia offered Scott a scholarship shortly after he announced his commitment date. Will that matter in regards to where he winds up committing to?
Time will tell but Notre Dame has to still like their chances with the mountain of a young man. We’re just nine days out from his commitment and according to news broken by Tom Loy of 247Sports on Saturday, Scott will be making a visit to Notre Dame on Sunday.
2024 quarterback commitment C.J. Carr has remained vocal on social media about getting Scott to South Bend.
With Scott’s commitment date not shifting following the Georgia offer I’m starting to let myself get excited about it happening, even if Loy already predicted it to earlier this week.
