Welcome to the “Recruit Wrap,” an IrishEyes.com feature that appears Monday during the high school season.
It will be a mix of players already committed to Notre Dame as well as updates on players who are being recruited by the Irish. It is designed to give readers a potpourri of information on how recruits are faring on a weekly basis.
