Notre Dame Offers Top 2015 Defensive Back


Kendrell McFadden is not only one of the top Defensive Backs in the 2015 class but top players overall. He currently has 59 offers and is ranked as the 80th best player according to 247Sports. His offer sheet includes schools such as Florida, Florida State, Miami, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

McFadden is physical and big enough to play Safety but has the athleticism to cover Wide Receivers. He is the type of player that would have made a difference in the National Title game. McFadden is a play that would allow you to play an 8-man box because he can cover so much ground. The Irish need to land this type of player.

Will they be able to get him out of Florida? It will be difficult. His first offer was from Florida State and he seems like a player who plays on the Florida State Defense. He is long, fast, athletic player who fits well with their system. Notre Dame needs to get McFadden up to camp this summer to have a chance at the 4-star player.
