Notre Dame lost out on 5-star Running Back Elijah Hood over the summer when he decided to stay closer to home and select the North Carolina Tar Heels. At the point of Hood’s decommitment, it seemed like Notre Dame would not end up taking a Running Back in the Class of 2014 because they did not have enough prospects to go after. However, new prospects are always hitting the recruiting radar as Notre Dame scours the nation for new targets.
But, the target they were looking for was not across the country but in their own back yard at Adams High School in South Bend, Indiana. The prospects name is Shaq Vann and he is a 5’11″ 195 lbs. 3-star Running Back prospect.
Vann does not have an impressive offer list but Kelly and his staff have not been known to shy away because of that. If they find a player that they think can play or make a contribution, they will offer the player. When Kelly first took over at Notre Dame, he offered Bruce Heggie his only FBS scholarship. It is not that bad for Vann but it is certainly close. Vann holds offers from Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Miami (OH).
However, Vann does not hold an Irish offer yet so this is purely hypothetical. There were only 7-on-7 highlights available of the Adams High School prospect online. He does look very good catching the football (and most certainly better than George Atkinson).
Will Shaq Vann be offered this weekend as Notre Dame plays Oklahoma?
