Notre Dame Football Recruiting

In 2011, Notre Dame went all-in with its recruiting pitch to prospects during the Notre Dame-USC. The Irish had 12 of the top prospects in the 2012 class. However, the Irish only ended to up landing one of those 12, Gunner Kiel. Kiel would eventually transfer to UC. Overall, the recruiting weekend was a failure. Notre Dame is going “all-in” again this weekend against USC. If Notre Dame wins and looks good doing it, they will land a number of the names on this list.
