Class Of 2024 Scholarship Offer Master List RECRUITING NOTES • Blue & Gold Illustrated was on hand in Baltimore Nov. 10 to see 2025 three-star prospect Kevyn Humes. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder attends St. Frances Academy and is one of Notre Dame's top cornerback targets in the 2025 cycle. Humes, who is listed as No. 17 prospect in Maryland and the No. 59 cornerback nationally by On3, was in South Bend Oct. 14, when the Irish hosted Southern California. He has also traveled to Alabama, Miami, Or- egon and Penn State this season. On June 25, Humes release his top eight that featured Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, Ohio State, Oregon and Tennessee. Although Miami and Penn State did not make his initial list, he still visited both this season. Still, three other programs from his previous top schools list have the most buzz. From what Blue & Gold Illustrated has gathered, Alabama, Notre Dame and Oregon are three schools trending well for Humes. A key attraction for Humes is program with a storied history of success, which aligns with the Tide and Irish. Academics are also high on his list, which certainly bodes well for Notre Dame. As for Oregon, Humes' mentor, 2024 class cornerback Ify Obidegwu, committed to the Ducks May 7. Obidegwu — On3's No. 6 recruit in Mary- land, and No. 24 cornerback and No. 231 overall player in America — held a Notre Dame offer before his pledge. Humes' other St. Frances Academy teammate, quarterback Michael Van Buren, pledged to Oregon 13 days after Obidegwu. Van Buren is listed as a three-star recruit, the No. 14 player in Maryland and the No. 49 quarter- back in the country by On3. Notre Dame never offered Van Buren. Meanwhile, Humes has made the trip to Eugene, Ore., twice within the last four months. • On Nov. 15, the Irish extended a scholarship offer to Eureka (Mo.) High four-star 2025 offensive tackle Jack Lange. The 6-8, 275-pounder — who is On3's No. 2 prospect in Missouri, and No. 18 offensive tackle and No. 290 overall player nationally — visited Notre Dame for the Pittsburgh game Oct. 28. Lange reports 11 other Power Five offers. He has also visited Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas State, Kansas and Ole Miss. • Lange's Notre Dame offer came three days after Wautoma (Wis.) High three-star 2025 offensive tackle Michael Roeske committed to the in-state Badgers. The Irish offered the 6-7, 280-pound Roeske following his May 25 trip to South Bend. He also visited for the Ohio State game Sept. 23. Roeske is the No. 3 recruit in Wisconsin and the country's No. 21 offensive tackle per On3. Notre Dame is still seeking its first offensive line commit in the 2025 recruiting cycle. — Kyle Kelly ON3 INDUSTRY 2025 TEAM RECRUITING RANKINGS As of Nov. 16 1. Alabama 8 2. Georgia 8 3.
