Three-star 2018 TE Tommy Tremble has verbally committed to play TE at Notre Dame.

Tremble picks the Irish over offers from schools such as Michigan, Auburn, California and Georgia. He's the second tight end to commit to Notre Dame, after four-star prospect George Covacs who committed in June. It's a school that has a history of letting players at the position play early, so both Tremble and Covacs have a chance to contribute to the 2018 Notre Dame club, if they play well in summer practices.

Notre Dame redshirt junior G Quenton Nelson, Notre Dame senior T Mike McGlinchey and Texas senior T Connor Williams could all land in the top 10 or 15 picks, according to Albert Breer.

Again, we are so early in the process, but Breer is certainly clued into NFL thinking and what names might be at the top of positions of need. Teams are always looking to shore up their front five, but it is clear those picks aren't as "safe" as once thought.

Former FSU four-star DB commit Houston Griffith has verbally committed to Notre Dame.

Griffith (6'0/185) decommitted from Florida State on November 29, and has signed on to Notre Dame over offers from Nebraska and Ohio State, among others. He's rated the 47th best prospect according to Rivals, and the 10th best cornerback in the country according to ESPN. The IMG Academy product gets rave reviews for his fluidity and footwork, while the negatives come in the speed area, so a move to safety is a possibility.

Notre Dame redshirt senior TE Durham Smythe has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Smythe has shown the ability to make plays as a receiver, but his best path to the NFL is his ability to block. The six-foot-six, 255-pound tight end did have a career best 18 yards per catch, and he scored four touchdowns in 2016. Draft Analyst's Durham Smythe currently projects the senior tight end to go in the sixth or seventh round.

Four-star CB recruit Tariq Bracy has verbally committed to play at Notre Dame.

Bracy (5'11/192) chose the Irish over offers at Washington State, Utah, and Cal, among others. He ran a 4.56 40 this spring, and he should be allowed to get stronger and faster while using a redshirt season thanks to Notre Dame's depth and youth at the defensive back position.

Pro Football Focus calculates that Notre Dame redshirt junior G Quenton Nelson allowed just three quarterback pressures in the 2017 regular season.

That number is the fourth-lowest of any guard in the FBS this season. We've talked ad nauseam about the job Notre Dame's offensive line has done in giving the Irish runners holes to run, but Nelson and company have also done a tremendous job of giving Brandon Wimbush time to throw the football. If Nelson declares as expected, he has a legitimate chance of being a top ten -- or higher -- selection.

FSU four-star 2018 verbal S commit Houston Griffith has reopened his recruitment.

Griffith (6'0/185) offered no reason for his decommitment in his short Twitter post. Seminoles four-star LB pledge Amari Gainer earlier said that FSU's recruiting class has become antsy given the uncertainty regarding HC Jimbo Fisher's coaching future with the team and that uncertainty could have played a part, here, but it's simply unknown at this point. Nebraska, Ohio State and Notre Dame were all in the hunt for Griffith's pledge before he committed to Florida State in October and should be considered programs to watch for a future pledge. The safety ranks as Rivals' No. 47 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Notre Dame sophomore WR Equanimeous St. Brown posted five receptions for 111 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss at Stanford.

The good news is that St. Brown did not seem to have any ill effects from the concussion which knocked him from the Navy game. The bad news is that the Cardinal outscored the Irish 21-0 in the fourth quarter and ended their already slim playoff hopes with a convincing 38-20 win. Next up for St. Brown and the offense is a bowl game.
Nov 25 - 11:43 PM

Notre Dame redshirt sophomore QB Brandon Wimbush completed 11-of-28 passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's loss at Stanford.

Wimbush connected with Kevin Stepherson on an 83-yard bomb to open the scoring, and he was mistake-free until the second half when the floodgates opened. The Cardinal outscored the Irish 21-0 in the second half thanks to a couple of Wimbush interceptions and a fumble on special teams. Next up for Wimbush and the Irish will be their bowl game.
Nov 25 - 11:40 PM

Notre Dame sophomore WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Stanford.

St. Brown has been in concussion protocol over the last week after sustaining a head injury in last weekend's win over Navy. It's a good sign that he's warming up early. Should he be held out of the contest, we'll pass along word.
Nov 25 - 7:06 PM

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly announced that junior RB Dexter Williams (quad) will play Saturday against Stanford.

Williams is suffering from a quad contusion. "About as 100% as we’ve had him," Kelly said. "Gotta play a big role for us on Saturday." Williams has been in-and-out of the lineup this fall -- missing five games -- due to injury. He'll work in behind Josh Adams against the Cardinal.
Nov 21 - 4:07 PM

Notre Dame sophomore WR Kevin Stepherson caught five passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 24-17 win over Navy.

With the Irish trailing 17-10 midway through the third quarter, Stepherson came through with a 30-yard touchdown grab to knot up the scoreboard. He would also hit the end zone with the go-ahead score when Brandon Wimbush found him from nine yards out with 11:55 remaining in the fourth quarter. This game was not only the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder's first 100-yard showing of the campaign, it was his first game this season in which he has topped 60 yards receiving.
Nov 18 - 6:58 PM

Notre Dame junior RB Josh Adams rushed for 106 yards on 18 carries in Saturday's 24-17 win over Navy.

Adams had been limited to a combined 62 yards rushing against Wake Forest and Miami over the previous two weekends. That little cold streak now snapped, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Heisman contender is up to 1,337 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the year. He'll look to finish out the season in high style against Stanford next Saturday.
Nov 18 - 6:49 PM

Notre Dame sophomore WR Equanimeous St. Brown exited Saturday's game against Navy with an apparent head/neck injury.

St. Brown came down awkwardly after being flipped on a high throw from Brandon Wimbush. He has yet to reenter the game. We should have an update on his status at the half.
Nov 18 - 4:39 PM

Notre Dame junior RB Josh Adams is averaging 5.89 yards after contact, the highest number of any FBS running back according to Pro Football Focus.

Josh Adams is stronger than you. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound tailback has been able to run over defenders all year, outside of his struggles against Miami last week that appear to be at least in part due to injury issues. He doesn't have elite speed, but he's shown the ability to run through secondaries when he's not running over them. He's no longer a Heisman contender, but there's no denying that Adams has been one of the best tailbacks in the country in 2017.
