Notre Dame lands 3 recruits on Signing Day to complete top 13 class

Known for not likely when someone’s phone rings during a press conference, it was Irish coach Brian Kelly who committed the crime Wednesday during Signing Day.

He had a good reason. It was 3-star safety/linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah on the line to tell Kelly that he was coming to Notre Dame.

“Well that was good news,” Kelly said as he returned to the podium.

Just a few minutes later, Kelly was interrupted again. This time by a Notre Dame staffer who handed the Irish coach a piece of paper to announced 3-star defensive end Kofi Wardlow had committed to Notre Dame.

After a 4-8 season and losing a number of recruits and going through a ton of assistant coaching changes, the Irish rebounded well on Signing Day signing all 18 of their commits entering the day and adding three more on Signing Day itself to bring the total class to 21.

Five of the signees are already enrolled at Notre Dame.

In addition to Owusu-Koramoah, Notre Dame added Hawaii defensive end Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa on Signing Day. He’s a 6’4″ 270 pound defensive end that gives the Irish much needed depth in a key area.

Notre Dame has the 13th ranked recruiting class in the country.
