The Notre Dame football team has had a great 2024 recruiting class. It appears that despite the fact that Marcus Freeman and company are quite happy with what they’ve done in the most recent cycle, they do want to add one more. And it appears Kevyn Humes is quite interested in joining the Fighting Irish as well.

Humes, a 4-star cornerback landed squarely on Notre Dame football’s radar when he did decide to reclassify from the 2025 class. Now the Irish are looking as though they might be the favorites to land him when he signs in February.

“They've been recruiting me the hardest,” Humes recently told Irish Sports Daily. “I would say out of the four schools, they've been pushing and recruiting me the hardest. Coach Freeman, Coach Golden and Coach Mickens have all been on my line like crazy.”

The four schools that Humes was talking about, including Notre Dame are Syracuse, Penn State, and Florida. The defensive back out of Maryland plans on paying each of the quartet a visit on consecutive weekends. 

Those visits will all lead up to the February National Signing Day where he’ll send in his NLI. For the moment, he’s talking like someone who doesn’t know what school he’ll pick. But his comments about Freeman and the rest of the coaches might betray where he’s leaning.

“It's going to be a little stressful,” the defensive back said. “But hard decisions, to me, they're hard, but I end up making the best choice, so I'm not worried.”

According to Rivals, the 4-star prospect has already scheduled two of his official visits. He’ll be visiting Syracuse on January 12 and Penn State on January 19. That leaves either this weekend or January 26 as the dates where Notre Dame football could host.

Humes has already made a couple of stops in South Bend. Now Notre Dame football is looking to seal the deal and add another talented player to an already great class.
