Notre Dame football: Micah Gilbert with huge commitment to Irish
The wide receiver room under Chansi Stuckey at Notre Dame football is starting to become a true weapon for the Irish. Micah Gilbert has joined Isiah Canion and Cam Williams to form a highly talented trio of receivers committed to the Irish in the class of 2024.
Gilbert is an extremely talented receiver with some nice size at 6’3” and 200 pounds in the class of 2024 and rounds out the receiver class nicely. There’s still a chance the Irish add another receiver at the position, likely Jason Robinson, but should another position be of focus, that’s their priority.
Gilbert is from the same school as newly committed 2024 Notre Dame football classmate Bryce Young in North Carolina. The group that has all committed to this point has a strong bond with one another, and that should help when they get to campus. According to 247Sports, Gilbert is the 199th overall prospect in the class of 2024 and 30th ranked wide receiver.
An interesting tidbit, according to 247Sports, is that Gilbert is the cousin of none other than Darrelle Revis, one of the most talented cornerbacks to come through the NFL in a while. In addition, the last three Fighting Irish commitments have all had NFL pedigrees tied to them through their families. Bryce Young is the son of legendary Notre Dame and NFL player Bryant Young and Kennedy Urlacher is the son of hall-of-fame linebacker Brian Urlacher.
While that doesn’t guarantee success for any of the three players mentioned, it certainly can’t hurt. Notre Dame football may have one of its best wide receiver recruiting classes in quite some time with the addition of Gilbert. Last year, the Irish took a leap at the position and are doing the same again in the class of 2024.
Gilbert will be a fantastic collegiate player, and should he stay healthy for an entire season during his senior year, he has a chance to climb the rankings. The three-headed monster that is headed to South Bend for the Irish is one of the best classes we’ve seen in a while.
