ND going after one of my 2024 Hit List DE's.

247 followed by naming him the #1 Edge in the class and at #21, he's in future 5 star territory.

Dad played for Spurrier at Florida.

4.0 GPA

Already invited to play in the 2024 All American Bowl

Same HS as Lathan Ransom & Bijan Robinson

Hopefully ND does not drag its feet here and recruits him hard and early.

On3 moved Rushing up to #8 in the class and #2 Edge.

Landing him and Keeley from a prospect perspective is the defensive equivalent of landing Moore and Sayin but with much higher floors and both would contribute vs QB production which is sequential by careers (outside of injury)

Might be looking at the most important prospect in the '24 Class.

Bobby what's your feel for how he views ND?

Notre Dame will be beating down the playoff doors if they land these guys. 2022 class was good. 2023 and 2024 are looking special early.

At a March UA Camp measured in at 6-foot-6 and 224 pounds with an 80-inch wingspan. In testing, he clocked a 4.48-second shuttle drill and a 27.8-inch vertical jump.

Oregon got his brother in 2022 as a PWO

Gonna be a dogfight but it’d guess we continue to be a big player here

Take NIL out and the schools I'd expect to be at the top are:

ND
Oregon
SC
Ohio St
Maybe Texas & Zona

If Dante lands with the Irish, Rushing moves past Julian Sayin for for the top spot on my 2024 Prospect Power Ranking.

Keeley & Rushing would be the greatest 1-2 recruiting punch for ND in the modern, recruiting rankings era

Saw Rushing last night vs Scottsdale Chaparral. Great game, an OT win for the Chaptown Firebirds.

First off, Rushing's gonna be huge (he already looks 6-6/240). This is gonna be a kid who could play at 6-6/280. I don't see a Vyper here. I don't see the same level of athlete as Isaiah Foskey as Jr when he was one of the top TE prospects in the class. That said, with the use of 3 man fronts, you aren't shaking the bushes for 6-4/210 DE's like Julian Okwara that project as prototype Vypers.

Now the important stuff... Sounds like it's SC vs Bama right now with ND and UT also mentioned. One thing I'll say is the folks around Salpointe is it's ND friendly. I sat on the Salpointe side wearing ND gear and got 25+... Go Irish!'s and many of their fans had ND gear on too.

Imo there's a 0% chance this dude signs with ND. That update doesn't do much to convince me to change that opinion

Reminds me of when Javien Toviano mentioned ND for like a week in January. Nothing ever came of it. Maybe this will be different but agree with you for now.

At least Rushing has visited once. It'd take one more unofficial before there's any realistic chance. Actions>words...

Again, TWFWIW, but he followed that up by saying he’s seen actual texts of his Father’s expectations for compensation packages.
