The Notre Dame football program continues to stack talent for their 2024 recruiting class, this time landing elite TE Jack Larsen.
Notre Dame football continues to roll on the recruiting trail, adding 2024 tight end Jack Larsen out of North Carolina. This one seemed pretty simple from the start. The Irish offered Larsen back in March on Pot of Gold Day to get a jump early on the talented soon-to-be Junior and clearly, that was an offer Jack was waiting for.
He made it to campus and completely seemed to fall in love with everything about Notre Dame and decided to pull the trigger early before his junior season. It almost seems that if the Irish want a tight end they get them at this point.
The history of that position group, along with everything else Notre Dame football gives you was everything Larsen wanted and he wasn’t going to wait any longer. He’s now officially Irish. —
At the time of his committing to the Notre Dame football team, Larsen holds 25 offers from the likes of Clemson, Michigan, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, and many others.
What will Jack Larsen bring to the Notre Dame football program?
The 6’3 215-pound tight end is going to bring excellent passing ability and athleticism. His offer list speaks for itself as well. Larsen is a catch-first tight end and has outstanding hands. He’s quick and can get down the field especially in the sweet spot being linebackers.
His ability to separate is key too for his size. He’s quick off the snap and is a very solid route runner. He uses his hips well and gets out of his break with ease, making it extremely difficult for linebackers to stay on him in coverage.
I think he’s still growing and if that’s the case and he maintains his agility and quickness he could be in for a massive senior season. Regardless he could be very special whether that’s standing to 6’3 like he is now or 6’5 if there’s a tad more room to grow. I have no doubt he will be getting stronger and stronger which will benefit him greatly if he’s needed more as a run blocker at times once he gets to South Bend.
With Larsen joining to fold the 2024 recruiting class now holds four commitments, two on defense and two offensively. Larsen moves the Irish to the number one recruiting class with his pledge, passing Florida State early on for the top spot.
The Notre Dame football team seemed to be in the running to land Carnell Tate, but in the end, the five-star wideout chose Ohio State.
As for the tight end room, I’d expect tight end coach Gerad Parker to have a duo at that position for this class so expect another heavy weight tight end to join an already outstanding fit for what Notre Dame is known for in Jack Larsen. Can’t say this enough but another outstanding start for the staff here. “Tight End U” isn’t going away anytime soon.
