Why Samuel M’Pemba moving official visit is good news for Notre Dame

·1 min read

Twitter spaces has become yet another outlet for college football fans to gather and has become a place where news tends to happen.  That was the case Tuesday night when the Irish Players Club hosted a Twitter spaces with former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire and five-star 2023 recruiting prospect Samuel M'Pemba.

M’Pemba is ranked as the 16th overall player in the 2023 recruiting class by 247Sports composite rankings which makes him a five-star talent.  Although listed as an athlete, he’d most likely play linebacker at Notre Dame, the same position he played in at IMG Academy’s spring football game recently.

M’Pemba announced on the Twitter spaces that he’ll be moving his official visit to Notre Dame from mid-June to November 5 when the Irish play host to Clemson.  His visit in June will now be of the unofficial capacity.

There is clearly a long way to go before M’Pemba makes a decision as he’ll have the pick of the litter seeing as the blue bloods like Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Texas, USC, and plenty of others have extended scholarship offers his way.

What it means is that although it’s nearly impossible to call Notre Dame a favorite for his talents, them pretty much assuring themselves a spot at the table still in November of his senior year is certainly a positive.
