Editor’s Note: These are the current Top 5 Targets for Notre Dame Recruiting in the opinion of Slap the Sign and its writers. The Top 5 Targets are determined on a basis of how well Notre Dame likes a certain recruit and how well they like Notre Dame. This list is updated weekly with the odds (Very likely, Likely, In Between, Unlikely and Very Unlikely) of whether or not the recruit will choose Notre Dame.
The week of the All-American Games is critical for college coaches trying to replenish their rosters. This week will feature three announcements from Irish targets at their respective All-Star games.
Al-Quadin Muhammad, Weakside Defensive End, Don Bosco Prep
Muhammad will make his college decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, January 5th. For the past few months, it has seemed almost automatic that Notre Dame would be receiving his commitment during this game. But, a lot of things have transpired since then. Rumors have circulated that Muhammad is academically ineligible for Notre Dame. He has taken visits to Miami and Alabama. He is also close to Notre Dame Freshman Elijah Shumate. This decision comes down to Notre Dame or Miami. It is really close and difficult to read.
Odds: In Between (Last week: Very Likely)
