As Notre Dame waits for all of the signatures to come in, National Signing Day looks to be a big time catch for The Irish. 

“People love Notre Dame and these kids are committed to Notre Dame because of what Notre Dame is going to do for the future,” Coach Marcus Freeman said, according to NBC Sports. “That was really, really refreshing to hear from my point of view. This isn’t about a coach. It’s not about any other reason than they know what Notre Dame is going to do for their athletic career and the future.”

Even with the news that four star receiver CJ Williams decommitted, Notre Dame still shows a strong class. Perhaps the biggest haul comes on the offensive line. 

Billy Schrauth, Aamil Wagner, Ashton Craig, Ty Chan and Joey Tanona represent a strong building block. The group is so strong, that Schrauth could see early action on the defensive line where he also starred in Wisconsin. Recruiting expert Tom Lemming is very high on Schrauth. 

“He’s a 4.0 student and runs a 4.9 40-yard dash, which is fantastic for an offensive lineman,” Lemming said. “He dominated in a suspect league against small-school competition, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that there might not be a better offensive guard in the country when you look at his athletic ability, intelligence, technique and potential.”

Indiana native Ashton Craig, the lowest ranked of the group in various recruiting rankings, may have shown the greatest improvement during his final high school season.

“He’s got a good frame, good feet and good potential,” Lemming said. “He’s a three-star right now, but the Notre Dame coaching staff is projecting him to be very good.”

While all are versatile, the projection is for Craig to play center, Schrauth and Tanona to be guards and Wagner and Chan to line up at the tackle spots.
