2014 Notre Dame Football Recruiting

Orlando, Florida Wide Receiver Ryan Sousa remains committed to the 2nd-ranked Seminoles but is looking around. According to reports on Twitter, Sousa will officially visit South Bend later this year.

Sousa checks in at 6’0″ 177-lbs while running a 4.66 40-yard dash. Although that number is not extremely impressive, fans can rest assured that he has enough talent based on his offers. Sousa is a 3-star recruit according to Rivals, Scout and 247. ESPN is the lone outlier that has Sousa ranked as a 4-star player.

Florida recently came in with an offer on November 1st. Thomas Goldkamp of GatorBait.com predicted that the Gainesville would be his final destination on November 4th.

Sousa is one of three pure Wide Receivers that Florida State has committed in the 2014 class. However, there are others who could possibly play the position. Not all players are afraid of competition but sometimes overcrowding at a certain spot forcing a prospect to shake loose.

Notre Dame currently has two Wide Receivers committed in this class. Based on the fact that Notre Dame has a wealth of young Wide Receiver talent, pursuing another player at the position does not make complete sense. However, it is important to continue to build depth. Notre Dame will have 10 scholarship Wide Receivers next year including Josh Atkinson and Torii Hunter Jr. These players may be unable to give anything in the future. Kelly claims that he need six to seven players to run his offense. Therefore, it is important to have as many guys in there as possible.
