April 22, 1:27 p.m. – Cornerback recruit Cagan Campbell enjoying his first trip to Notre Dame. Campbell is probably has a little way to go before getting an offer. That said, he runs a legit 4.43 and produces in 6A Alabama high school football.

I spoke with him as soon as he left campus. Mike Elko talked to him about working on his back peddle.

April 21, 11:27 p.m. – Georgia cornerback recruit received another edit from the Notre Dame staff via Twitter on Friday night. The three-star high school free safety racked up 86 tackles in his junior season. He shows great speed and tackling ability.

Birdsong told Irish Illustrated this week that he has high hopes for an Irish offer this weekend. If he gets one, he may commit.

April 21, 7:40 p.m. – Owings Mills (Maryland) McDonogh defensive tackle P.J. Mustipher is certainly one of the top recruits who will be in attendance at the Blue-Gold Spring Game. Irish Illustrated’s intel is that the top-100 overall talent is most considering Notre Dame and Ohio State.

Sam Mustipher, P.J.’s brother, is the starting center at Notre Dame (and who he is referring to in his tweet). How much this kinship plays a factor in his recruitment, remains to be seen. That said, you have to think it help Notre Dame’s chances.

Mayfield is certainly on Irish Illustrated’s offer watch.

April 19, 8:21 p.m. – Four-star defensive tackle Jayson Ademilola and his twin brother Justin are in South Bend this weekend and arrived Thursday.
