Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Watkins, Hendrix Schedule Visits

Bishop Dunne Teammates Nick Watkins and Payton Hendrix have scheduled visits to Notre Dame for the October 19th battle versus USC. Watkins is a 4-star Cornerback who has favored Notre Dame as his leader in the past. Hendrix is a more recent Notre Dame offer and a 3-star Safety prospect.

Watkins favors the Longhorns now, according to 247Sports.com. Watkins is ranked as the 25th Best Cornerback in the nation, according to 247Sports.com. Notre Dame is probably running second behind the Longhorns currently. Watkins has visited Notre Dame already. Pulling him away from Texas will be difficult now that he favors them.

Hendrix is probably down to Arkansas and Notre Dame currently. However, he has not seen Notre Dame yet. When he was offered by Notre Dame, it completely changed his prospective on his recruitment. A solid official visit should land him.

Landing both of these players would be excellent for the Fighting Irish. The likelihood of that happening is low. But, the Irish are definitely in the mix for each player.
