Rivals has released a post-spring update of the Rivals100 list and no major shakeups occurred involving the Irish and its 2018 commitments.
Marietta (Ga.) Lassiter safety Derrik Allen continues to be the highest ranked Notre Dame commit coming in at No. 47, a slight fall from his No. 40 spot in the previous update.
Gibsonia (Pa.) Pine Richland quarterback Phil Jurkovec leads the way for the offensive side of the ball in the class. The four-star is now ranked as the No. 69 player nationally (No. 59 in previous update).
Several top Irish targets make an appearance in the Rivals100 including Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei five-star wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (No. 4), Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy defensive back Houston Griffith (N0. 44) and Temecula (Calif.) Great Oaks linebacker Jack Lamb (No. 97), who recently listed Notre Dame in his final five.
Other targets on the list include five-star cornerback Anthony Cook out of Houston Lamar, Atlanta Pace guard Jamaree Salyer (No. 11), Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage wide receiver Anthony Schwartz (No. 87), St. Louis Christian Brothers wide receiver Kamryn Babb (No. 89) and Waldorf (Md.) North Point offensive tackle Rasheed Walker (No. 93). Notre Dame is on the outside looking in for each player, but the staff continues to push for each in hopes of securing a visit to South Bend.
Cook and Babb cut their lists in recent weeks and the Irish made the top 10 for Cook and the top nine for Babb, but Cook has yet to visit Notre Dame and Babb will likely need to make a return trip in order for the Irish to become a serious contender.
Multiple Irish commits are expected to place in the next update of the Rivals250 list. In the last edition, Erie (Pa.) Cathedral Prep linebacker Bo Bauer (No. 111), Gurnee (Ill.) Warren Township wide receiver Micah Jones (No. 174), Portland Tigard wide receiver Braden Lenzy (No. 203) and Indianapolis Cathedral running back Markese Stepp (No.214) ranked inside the top 250 players nationally, according to Rivals.
Stayed tuned for the Rivals250 update to see where other Irish commits may land.
