Notre Dame football frontrunning for legacy LB despite power program fight

A legacy 4-star defender is trending hard for the Notre Dame football team despite visits to Ohio State and Michigan still lined up.

Things are starting to heat up with Notre Dame football, even if they aren’t racking up the commits just yet. The team could start racking those commits up relatively soon. Especially if some analysts are right on.

Over the weekend, a pair of exceptionally talented and highly sought-after linebackers were both in South Bend. It’s becoming increasingly likely that both are leaning towards the Fighting Irish. The question isn’t if Marcus Freeman and his team will secure them, but when?

Notre Dame football frontrunning for talented legacy prospect

Earlier this week, analyst Tyler James clarified that he believes Nathaniel Owusu-Boateng will eventually land with the Irish. He also made it clear that hasn’t always been the case. But in the long run, it just feels like it was almost meant to be.

Boateng is considered the 52nd-ranked player in his class by 247Sports. He’s the younger brother of former Fighting Irish star Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, who is now chasing down offensive stars with the Cleveland Browns. 

What’s most interesting about Boateng now being considered a lean to the Golden Domers is that he’s still got some very big visits on his agenda. This coming weekend, the four-star linebacker is set to visit Ohio State. 

Next weekend, he’s headed to Ann Arbor and the Michigan Wolverines. On May 31, he also checked out USC, but it appears the Trojans didn’t make a big enough impact on him to sway him away from the school that has family ties.

The DeMatha High School product also has offers from Alabama, Florida State, Nebraska, and Georgia, but it looks for now that the Fighting Irish are going to land the talented linebacker. Along with Madden Faraimo, the Notre Dame football team is about to get some very big commitments.

It’s just a matter of when.
