Irish Well-Represented in Final Scout300

Bishop Luers High (Fort Wayne, Ind.) outside linebacker Jaylon Smith is the top rated player at his position and the No. 3 overall prospect in the nation in the final edition of the Scout300, but he is not the only player representing Notre Dame. Seventeen Notre Dame commits made the list.

Notre Dame has huge presence in the final Scout300 rankings, including a jump by committed outside linebacker Jaylon Smith to No. 3 overall and committed offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey moving up 139 slots to No. 90 overall.

Overall, 16 of Notre Dame's 23 committed prospects are in the Scout300. The Irish have the third-rated recruiting class in the nation.

Smith is the only five-star prospect committed to the Irish, but the strength in the class is a mixture of high-end talent and depth.
