The Notre Dame basketball program is one that is going through a hard reboot. First-year head coach Micah Shrewsberry has not been shy about explaining that means that things aren’t going to be great this year. They’re likely not going to be great next year either.
Rebuilding takes time. And it takes bodies. It’s possible that one of those bodies is getting closer to being on the way. Ty Price came to South Bend this weekend. He can’t have been all that impressed by what he saw against Boston College as far as wins and losses, but he also likely saw a roster that has some talent he could pair with.
Price is one of those point guards who is seeing his stock rise in recent weeks. Scoring 38 points will do that. At the same time, the Morgantown, Kentucky point guard doesn’t yet have an official offer from the Irish or most of the other power conference teams that are thought to be among his favorites.
That could change and it could change quickly. At the moment, Mississippi State is the top school that’s come calling. There’s also Southeast Missouri State and Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
That might make some Notre Dame basketball fans wonder if Price is worthy of an offer from the Fighting Irish. But his talent has shown that he could definitely be a diamond in the rough. And Shrewberry’s squad is far from the only power team that’s hedging bets.
Notre Dame basketball hosts high-scoring point guard
Price has visits scheduled or has already visited some of the best schools in his region. Louisville, Mississippi State, Auburn, and Oklahoma are all on his radar and he on theirs.
The Indiana Hoosiers are there too. And now so is Notre Dame basketball. For the 2025 prospect, things are likely going to evolve quickly. And help could be on the way for the Fighting Irish before we know it.
