Flippin’ Sunday: Irish snag two more recruits
Notre Dame’s recruiting class jumped to 18 commitments Sunday night with the decisions of two players previously committed to other Power-Five schools.
Receiver Jafar Armstrong (Bishop Miege High School; Roeland Park, Kan.) visited coach Brian Kelly and other offensive coaches on campus this weekend, quickly de-committing from Missouri after his visit. By the end of the night, he doubled the incoming receiver count with an Irish decision.
Only hours later, kicker Jonathan Doerer (South Mecklenburg H.S.; Charlotte, N.C.) switched his commitment from Maryland to Notre Dame in one fell tweet.
“After some recent talks with my family and people whose opinion I hold in high esteem, I have decided that it would be in my best interest to decommit [sic] from UMD and spend the next 4 years of my life at the University of Notre Dame ☘️!!!”
Safety Evan Fields (Midwest City; Oklahoma City) could possibly make it a class of 19 commitments today (Jan. 30) at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time, when he has a ceremony scheduled at his high school for his announcement. Notre Dame received the final visit of Fields’s recruitment, hardly ever a bad sign.
