Notre Dame football is making one final push for one of the best defensive linemen in the 2024 class, even if he’s already committed to Georgia.
As the 2023 season draws to a close, the Notre Dame football program is trying its best to keep building for the next iteration.
One month away from national signing day, Marcus Freeman and company are trying to build that next iteration with one of the better defensive linemen in the 2024 class. A lineman that is already committed to one of the best teams in the country.
Nnamdi Ogboko gave his pledge to the Georgia Bulldogs back in June. However, it appears that he’s making sure that Athens is where he wants to call home by taking in the sights at a couple other schools. Notre Dame football is heavily in the mix, thanks to his slightly wandering eye.
One of the big reasons why the Fighting Irish are trying so hard to flip a player that has committed to the two-time defending national champion is because his body size is simply too enticing.
The 6-foot-4, 335-pounder is simply a player Notre Dame football hasn’t been able to add to its stable in years. In fact, you’d have to go back to Jarron Jones (6’5, 315) to find a player that is similar in build to Ogboko.
Notre Dame football going after monster defensive linemen
Irish Sports Daily reports that Notre Dame football is clearly in the mix for the monster lineman as he visited for the Ohio State game. The fact that Georgia is continuing to recruit interior defensive linemen may help the Irish as well.
Marcus Freeman have made him a priority of late and that seems to be swaying the 3-star defensive lineman from South Garner in North Carolina.
Considering that Notre Dame football is already considered to have a Top 10 recruiting class. Now the Fighting Irish are looking to close out the signing class with some special players that might not have factored in earlier.
