Irish get a boost from top safety target

Three-star safety Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah landed an offer from Notre Dame last week and on Monday he decommitted from Virginia following a school visit from Brian Kelly. He’ll visit South Bend this weekend.

Notre Dame’s chances of landing three-star safety Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah improved on Monday when the 6-foot-2, 188-pounder from Hampton, Va., decommitted from Virginia.

Scout.com’s Hondo Carpenter broke the news.

“Just off the phone with Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah,” Carpenter posted on Twitter. “He informed me that he as decommitted from UVA.”

Irish defensive coordinator Mike Elko and linebackers coach Clark Lea had developed a strong relationship with Owusu-Koramoah when they were recruiting him to play at Wake Forest.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly visited Bethel High School on Monday to meet with Owusu-Koramoah and the Irish will host the hybrid safety/linebacker on Thursday and Friday for a final official visit prior to Signing Day.

Owusu-Koramoah will then decide between Notre Dame and Michigan State, according to Carpenter. The three-star prospect took an official visit to East Lansing last weekend.

Scout.com Southeast Analyst Michael Clark believes Owusu-Koramoah could thrive at the college level.

“He’s a big, physical safety.” Clark said. “The Bethel standout has good instincts and is very aggressive. He is also extremely athletic and has great range in the secondary.”
