Markese Stepp – RB – 6’0, 215 lbs. – Indianapolis, IN – Cathedral Prep
Composite Ranking: #197 Overall/ #8 RB/ #2 IN
Dynamic Running Back and Notre Dame’s lead recruiter Markese Stepp holds offers from Georgia, Miami, LSU, Michigan and many more. Not that it matters as I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more solid commit than him. Stepp committed during last years Irish Invasion camp.
Stepp works hard daily on academics, the weight room and on Twitter, recruiting top talent all over the nation to Notre Dame. This can be a very important thing for a program.
With Phil Jurkovec and Markese Stepp in this class joining a program with one of the most talent loaded offensive lines in the country, Notre Dame is building something truly dynamic with their offense.
Stepp suffered a hamstring injury last season. Through 8 games in his sophomore year, he rushed for 888 yards on 104 carries, good for 8.5 yards/carry, and 12 touchdowns.
Running behind a stout offensive line at one of the best prep programs in Indiana, Stepp runs fearlessly with great acceleration and breakaway top-end speed which is rare for a back his size.
Expect Markese Stepp to be a dynamic running back for the Irish.
