Saint John's wide receiver and Notre Dame commit Jay Brunelle, the No. 8 recruit in Massachusetts per Rivals. All of Notre Dame's class of 2020 commit- ments have now taken their official visit. Ohio State graduate safety transfer Isaiah Pryor took an official visit to Notre Dame Oct. 11-13, and the former four-star recruit returned to South Bend over the Virginia Tech weekend. The key purpose of that visit were getting his mother on campus to see Notre Dame, learn more about the academics, and meet the coach- ing staff. Now that Pryor's mother has visited, the 6-2, 200-pounder is on commitment watch. Pryor played in 31 games for the Buckeyes over three seasons and recorded 47 tackles, two tack- les for loss and an interception from 2017-19. He only played in four games for Ohio State in 2019, which allows him to redshirt this year. He will have eligibility for the 2020 and 2021 seasons. • A pair of 2021 recruits who hold offers from Notre Dame made it up to South Bend. East Lansing (Mich.) High's Andrel Anthony, the No. 12 recruit in Michigan and the nation's No. 56 wide receiver per Rivals, took his second trip to see the Irish this fall. His last visit was in September, and he earned an offer from Notre Dame a few days after that trip. Huntington (W.Va.) Spring Valley class of 2021 offensive tackle Wyatt Milum, — Rivals' No. 2 recruit in West Virginia, and No. 20 offensive tackle and No. 158 overall prospect nationally — visited Notre Dame for the Virginia Tech game Nov. 2. The 6-6, 250-pounder checked out the school over the spring and earned an offer from the Irish. Milum is a priority for the Notre Dame coaching staff. • The top class of 2022 recruit who attended the Virginia Tech game was Aurora (Colo.) Regis Jesuit gunslinger Nicco Marchiol, who holds of- fers from Georgia, Michigan, Utah and Washing- ton State. Marchiol is very high on Notre Dame and would closely consider an offer from the Irish. "It's a special place," Marchiol said. "At Regis, a lot of our teachers and coaches actually went to Notre Dame and have nothing but great things to say about it. I would definitely want to have that offer and consider them." — Mike Singer Follow @BGI_MikeSinger on Twitter for daily recruiting updates! Wyatt Milum of Huntington (W.Va.)
