The Notre Dame football team already boasts the top recruiting class of the 2025 cycle. Now it seems they might be adding another offensive lineman to the group. At the very least, they’re among some of the best teams in the country as a final candidate for Matt Augustine's services.

Augustine announced his final five teams earlier this week. In addition to the Notre Dame football team, the Michigan Wolverines, Wisconsin Badgers, Penn State Nittany Lions and Ohio State Buckeyes are also in the running. 

It should be lost on no one that the Irish are doing battle for the 3-star prospect with several Big Ten schools. Knowing that, it’s a bit odd that the 6-foot-7, 285 pound offensive lineman out of Greenwich, Connecticut is only a 3-star player.

Of course, with those teams on the 2025 recruit, it would seem that before all is said and done, he’ll be getting at least one more before all is said and done. Until then, the Fighting Irish are going to be hoping they can stand out from the pack.

So far, so good in that regard right now.

While Augustine has said that he’s narrowed his list down to five, there are several recruiting analysts who believe he’s really already down to one.

Notre Dame football already the last team standing for Matty Augustine?

That the fighting Irish are among the Top 5 teams for the Connecticut offensive lineman, is plenty impressive. August has offers from 30 schools across the country including Alabama, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Kentucky, Miami, and others.

247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong, National Analyst Brian Dohn and Irish analyst all picked Notre Dame football to eventually secure his Matty Augustine’s commitment. If that does come true, it would mean Marcus Freeman and company add him to a committed offensive line group that includes tackles Owen Strebig and Will Black.
