While things have been looking bleak on the recruiting front, given all the coaching changes, several huge visits to Notre Dame football are set. According to a tweet from On3, current Tennessee commit Kaleb Beasley has a spring visit to South Bend locked in.
Kaleb Beasley is a highly talented cornerback in the class of 2024 who Notre Dame football has had pegged as a top priority for some time now. With the incredible performance last year by Benjamin Morrison and coach Mickens being one of the best in the game, it’s easy to see why he’d still be looking at the Irish.
It may be difficult for the Irish to overcome Beasley’s current commitment to the Vols, but his relationships with Marcus Freeman and Mike Mickens help. Beasley is rated as a top 150 player in the nation according to the 247Sports composite at 138th overall. Additionally, he’s listed as the 14th-best cornerback in the country. If Notre Dame football were to flip his commitment, pairing him with Moore and Hobbs would be a massive victory for the now uber-talented Irish cornerback room.
According to a tweet from Tom Loy of 247Sports, extremely talented class of 2025 quarterback Deuce Knight will also visit the Irish. After more digging, his visit is locked in for April 1st.
Deuce Knight doesn’t have any rating on the 247Sports website, but by all accounts, when searching around, he’s a top talent at the position in his class. He’s 6’4” and 190 pounds, with plenty of arm strength and mobility to be a star quarterback in college. He doesn’t currently hold an offer from Notre Dame football but does have plenty of them under his belt. His offers include Tennessee, Washington, Auburn, and Ole Miss.
Regardless of how things play out for the Irish, getting top talent on campus is always a good look for the program. Letting kids connect in person with the staff and coach Marcus Freeman is an automatic win in my book. Freeman is still one of the best recruiters in the country, regardless of what anyone says. Trust him to land some top talent in the class of 2024 and beyond.
