Notre Dame football has had a heck of a run in the transfer portal this December. And it doesn't look like Marcus Freeman and company are done yet. It appears that the Fighting Irish are trying their best to land at least one more wide receiver from the portal. That's newsworthy for more than one reason.

According to Tom Loy of 247Sports, the Fighting Irish hosted former Wake Forest wide receiver Jahmal Banks over the weekend. Loy added that he's heard it went "very well." However, it's worth pointing out that Banks didn't commit. Nor is he cutting off communication with other schools.

Banks has been quite busy. On Sunday he went from South Bend to Minnesota to check out the Golden Gophers. He's also still considering Purdue, Michigan and Wisconsin. It's interesting that Notre Dame football isn't fighting off teams from Wake's region but instead is going head-to-head with a bunch of Big Ten squads.

It's also interesting that the Irish is still going after Banks despite already having Beaux Collins and Kris Mitchell who appear to be the starting wide receivers for next season. The Golden Domers also have several recruits coming in their Top-10 recruiting class that are going to be eager to see the field.

Despite all of that, Freeman is clearly wanting to add another weapon to his stable. Another weapon for Riley Leonard to throw to in 2024. With the other two transfer receivers already on board, the Irish look to be putting the last of their eggs in the Jahmal Banks basket.

If Notre Dame football is going after one more transfer receiver, it makes sense that it would be Banks. In the last two seasons, he's caught 101 passes for more than 1,200 yards and 13 touchowns. Those numbers include career highs in catches with 59 and yards with 653.
