Early Signing Period for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish was successful as they hold the No. 9 recruiting class in college football. Despite the Fighting Irish's top 10 ranking, their work isn't over. Traditional signing day is just around the corner on Feb. 7. The top three recruits the Irish have signed are CB Houston Griffith, ILB Jack Lamb, TE George Takasc, but Notre Dame's work isn't done. Here are three other currently uncommitted prospects they can still sign:
Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT
Odds Notre Dame Sign Him: 25%
The Irish are battling with rival USC for 5-star offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere. Petit-Frere is from Tampa, FL and ranked as the nations No. 1 offensive tackle and the third best player from Florida. He is an incredible athlete, standing 6-foot-6, weighing 270 pounds. He still needs to add some weight once he gets to college, but he has the upside to be one of the best linemen in college football in the future.
Lawrence Keys III, WR
Odds Notre Dame Sign Him: 90%
Expect the Irish to sign 4-star wide receiver Lawrence Keys III. Keys is from New Orleans, LA and ranked as the nations No. 46 wide receiver and the 10th best player from Louisianna. He is a big play receiver with great acceleration but needs to add size once he gets to college since he is 5-foot-10 and weighs only 160 pounds. The LSU Tigers are still in the mix, however, expect him to leave his home state and come to Notre Dame.
D.J. Brown, CB
Odds Notre Dame Sign Him: 99%
All signs are pointing to 3-star cornerback DJ Brown signing with Notre Dame. The 17-year-old from Washington, DC de-committed from Virginia on Tuesday after his visit to Notre Dame this past weekend. He is ranked as the nations No. 49 cornerback and the fourth best player from DC. Standing 6-foot-1, weighing 185 pounds as a cornerback is an ideal size for a college cornerback. Combine that with his natural ball skills and Brown may grow into a solid defender for the Irish.
