FOOTBALL RECRUITING BY TOM LOY T he Sept. 6 matchup between Notre Dame and Michigan was the pre- mier recruiting weekend of the season for the Irish. U.S. Army All-Americans such as five-star defensive end Porter Gustin and four-star tight end Aliz'e Jones made the trip, along with Under Armour All-American and four-star running back Soso Jamabo. The Oct. 4 game against Stanford was another big weekend in Irish recruit- ing. That was the visit that sealed the deal with four-star quarterback Bran- don Wimbush and got him to flip his commitment from Penn State to Notre Dame. Top four-star targets in safety Frank Buncom IV and wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown were also on campus. The Irish staff also secured vis- its from four-star defensive end Mekhi Brown, an Alabama commit, and four- star safety Calvin Brewton, a Florida State commit. Early in the season it didn't seem like the Nov. 22 matchup between Notre Dame and Louisville would be on par with those aforementioned star-stud- ded Saturdays, but that is no longer the Notre Dame-Louisville Game Attracts Top Talent Four-star running back Dexter Williams of Winter Garden, Fla., the No. 108 overall recruit and No. 12 run- ning back in the nation according to 247Sports, is committed to Miami, but plans to take a look at Notre Dame.
