One of the best ways to assess your team’s recruiting efforts is to look at how your classes stack up. Provides more context on how the team is building its roster. The Notre Dame offense has used a two-year haul for the 2022 and 2023 classes to give its roster a big boost.
Class position grades are not based on what the previous class did or didn’t do in college, but on the performance of the players who graduated from high school. The grade is based on how well Notre Dame meets its needs, group talent and fit.
Here’s how the Notre Dame Offense performed over the two years:
School year: B+
undersigned (2): Steve Angeli (2022), Kenny Minchy (2023)
Landing Minchey played a big role in improving the future of the quarterback position at Notre Dame. Looking at the 2020-22 class from a three-year perspective Drew Pine, Tyler Buchner When Steve AngeliIt’s two types: one of impactful quarterback and one of solid game manager. Looking at his three-year outlook of Buchner, Angeli and Minchey, we see two impact his players and one game manager of his. Here’s how to properly build a quarterback depth chart.
Minchey is one of the best quarterbacks in the 2023 class Tommy Reese crime. He is smart, has a great feel for the game, is accurate and throws a good deep ball. Minchey also has the ability to play outside the offense, especially as a passer. He has the physique, football intelligence and arm talent to play early in his career if needed.
Angeli is a solid all-rounder. He has a quick release, has impressive leadership traits, and has demonstrated good game manager skills.
School year: a
undersigned (3): Gibran Payne (2022), Jadarian Price (2022), Jeremiah Love (2023)
Notre Dame has done an excellent job of replenishing the running back depth chart in recent seasons and landing Love in the 2023 class marks the Irishman’s fourth straight season with great preparation prospects. rice field. Price and Love were rated as top 100 recruits on the IB board.
Both Price and Love are home run hitters and bring every downback tool to the game. Price is a bit more of a vertical runner, but Love has impressive make-you-miss skills, both are impact players in the passing game, with Notre Dame playing his part as part of a rotation or at the same time on the field. You can definitely use them together in a 21 Person Package.
Payne was also rated as a four-star recruit despite missing much of his final two seasons through injury. If he can get back to full health, this backfield will be the deepest in decades. .
School year: B+
undersigned (5): Tobias Merriweather (2022), Rico Flores Jr. (2023), Jaden Greathouse (2023), Braylon James (2023), Caleb Smith (2023)
This grade is reduced because of the numbers. Notre Dame has his numbers in 2023, but he is two players short in the 2022 class. This means that in his two years the Irishman has failed to land a full two-deep.
That’s a minus, but the plus is that the talent Notre Dame has landed stands out. He’s long and fast and has the tools to become a dominant pass catcher at the next level.
Notre Dame’s 2023 class added a deep group of talented wideouts and a group that brings a wide variety of skills. That diverse skill set was much needed. James brings home run speed, Great House brings an advanced game with the tools to become a volume pass catcher, Smith is fast and has impressive post-catch skills, and Flores has the most advanced routes in his class. I am one of the runners.
If this group can reach its full potential, the Irish will be one of the better groups of pass catchers in all of college football.
School year: a
undersigned (3): Eli Laridon (2022), Holden Stain (2022), Cooper Flanagan (2023)
As expected, Notre Dame has been hiring tight ends over the past two years, like any program in the country. Raridon is rated as a top 100 recruit on his IB board, and Staes and Flanagan are both top 200 caliber prospects, but both could be high ceilings and good college tight ends.
Laridon’s injury history is problematic, but he has all the tools to become an elite college tight end. Showed ability. Staes is a great complement to Raridon, capable of doing many of the detached aspects of the game. His game is very rough around the edges, but his combination of athleticism, ball skills and length could make him an influential player in the passing game.
Flanagan has many throwbacks. He can also deal damage in the passing game, but his current strength is his overwhelming run blocker. Laridon also shows strong blocking potential, which makes him a great complement to the 2022 tight end who is a first-pass catcher.

undersigned (9): Ty Chan (2022), Ashton Craig (2022), Billy Schrauth (2022), Aamil Wagner (2022), Sullivan Absher (2023), Charles Jagusah (2023), Joe Otting (2023), Sam Pendleton (2023), Christopher Terek (2023)
There’s a lot to like about the two offensive line holes in 2022 and 2023. Notre Dame met its number needs in these two halls. There are excellent talents on the board and many impressive advantages. The one question mark about this group, why it’s not an A, is my question as to whether it has the necessary tackle depth.
Wagner and Jagser both have the tools to leave tackles in college. Wagner has elite length and athleticism, while Jagsar has enormous size and elite power. Wagner’s question mark is whether he can add enough mass to his frame to handle the rigors of college football while maintaining his athleticism. It comes from whether or not A positive response to this left-his tackle question would make this group stand out.
Both Jagusah and Schrauth are talented individuals and are rated among the top 100 recruits. This group doesn’t have a lot of star power, but Wagner has a nice advantage. If he hits the mark, it will give Ireland star power and need to be the dominant line. from these two classes. It’s not the power of the star that draws it this far, but the depth of a truly great footballer. Of his nine linemen, he has only one lineman below his grade of 4.5 star upside. This is very impressive. It has a combination of size, power, athleticism and advantages. Just answer the tackle question.
2022 Signatories Joey Tanona His career was already ended due to a tragic accident, so he is not listed in this group.
School year: a-
Notre Dame needed two years of strong offense and they got it. The Irish have landed at least one potential impact player at every position and added multiple players at each position on the impact upside at every position except quarterback. was able to overcome the 2023 class number problem to a large extent. These he two classes heading South Bend for skill prowess are as good as they have been seen in very, very consecutive classes. Long time.
There is no doubt that Notre Dame is closing the gap on these two aggressive classes.
A — Elite/College Football Playoff Caliber
B — Exceptional / Top 15 Calibres
C — Solid / Borderline Top 25 Caliber
D — substandard/poor
F — disaster
