PHOTO BY EJ HOLLAND RECRUITING NOTES On3 updated its rankings for prospects in the 2023 class Nov. 21 and there was some movement for Notre Dame's commitments. Rock Island (Ill.) Alleman's Charles Jagusah remained the No. 1 offensive tackle but his national ranking dropped four spots to No. 10. Denton (Texas) Guyer's Peyton Bowen, the No. 2 safety in the land, moved up a couple spots to No. 13 overall nationally. Belmont (N.C.) South Point's Sullivan Absher moved up three spots in the national rankings to No. 56 and is the No. 7 offensive tackle in America. St. Louis De Smet's Christian Gray slid several spots but still is the No. 13 cor- nerback and No. 93 overall prospect in the land. In addition, St. Louis Christian Brothers running back Jeremiyah Love moved up one spot in the national rankings to No. 107, Austin (Texas) West- lake receiver Jaden Greathouse fell six notches to No. 162, Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab linebacker Jaiden Ausberry rose 10 slots to No. 193 and Merrillville (Ind.) Andrean linebacker Drayk Bowen fell 12 spots to No. 220. The more notable slides were for a pair of Irish defensive line commits. West Roxbury (Mass.) Catholic Memorial's Boubacar Traore fell from 57 spots to No. 159, while Mentor (Ohio) High's Brenan Vernon dropped 64 spots to No. 257 overall. Traore has been injured for most of this season.
