Ahead of Friday night's Polynesian Bowl, there have been a couple of players that have been getting all the notice and notoriety. Among those who are standing out the most is a Notre Dame football signee who could be low key one of the Irish's best gets of the 2024 class.

Logan Saldate isn't someone who has flown completely under the radar. In fact, some analysts have pegged the 4-star prospect as someone who could start for Notre Dame football as a true freshman early.

Now he's showing the same kind of talent that has people believing he could be an immediate contributor once he gets to college, in an all-star bowl that has some of the best high school kids in the country going head-to-head.

Count 247Sports among those who have been tracking the players that are really getting a ton of attention at the Polynesian Bowl and earlier this week, Greg Biggins put together a list of the players showing out the most.

"Saldate is fresh off helping his Salinas (Calif.) Palma squad to a state title but showed no signs of rust since his season ended," Biggins wrote. "He looked fresh and dynamic and was a reliable target for the Makai quarterbacks.Saldate was an especially friendly set of hands for, the top-rated player in the game, and the two quickly established chemistry and got into a nice rhythm quickly in practice."

247Sports analysts are far from the only people who have been impressed by the way that Soldate carried himself in the run up to Friday night's game at 9pm.

The Rivals official twitter account pushed out a list of the best performers from the second day of practices. Saldate was right at the top of the list, followed very closely by Carter Nelson, a kid that Notre Dame football almost stole away from his home state Huskers.
