Do not forget to tune into day and WatchND throughout the day for real-time official announcements of national letters of intent and a live signing day show on the “Fighting Irish Board” presented by Vivid Seats.

North Allegheny; Wexford, Pa.

Measurements: 6’7, 293 lbs.

Accolades: Consensus four-star recruit; No. 6 player in Pennsylvania, per; 22nd at position and 236th in country; U.S. Army All-American

Other Offers Considered: Maryland, Penn State

Projected Position: Offensive tackle

Quick Take: Those aren’t typos. 6-foot-7. 293 pounds. If they are typos, they are not by much. Notre Dame is touting Lugg as 6’6”, 280. His frame appears ready to hold more, at that. His long arms set him up well for pass protection. Do not be surprised to see Lugg continue the recent Irish tradition of top-tier offensive linemen.

Clearwater Central Catholic; Clearwater, Fla.

Measurements: 6’4, 311 lbs.

Accolades: three-star recruit; No. 74 player in Florida, per; 56th at position

Other Notable Offers: Michigan State, Mississippi State, Ohio State

Projected Position: Offensive guard

Quick Take: Gibbons very well could be a prototypical Harry Hiestand offensive guard. Already coming in at a good size, some time in a college strength and conditioning program should serve to turn Gibbons into a stout offensive lineman. Just remember the spelling of his first name. That –an ending is bound to trip up some of us in the coming years.
