Notre Dame Football Recruiting: 4-Star LB To Visit, Irish To Flip 4-Star ATH?

The college football season doesn't start for over a month, giving the Notre Dame Fighting Irish more of time to focus on recruiting. ND has turned up the heat on the recruiting trail during the offseason, and it's already paid off with 16 commitments - but the Irish are far from done. Here are the latest news and rumors surrounding Notre Dame football recruiting.

Irish to flip Arizona commit?
Four-star athlete Greg Johnson (Los Angeles, CA) committed to Arizona in March, but he is still hearing a lot form Notre Dame - especially from wide receivers coach Mike Denbrock.

“I talk to coach Denbrock a lot,” Johnson told 247sports. “He wants me to take an official visit up there. I need to figure out if I want to do that or not. I just want to see how the fans react to the game, when they are winning or losing. You know, see how the fans get if you’re down. See if they’re still supportive. I want to see how the coaches coach, especially if it’s a close game. See if they stand up or fold.

“Coach Denbrock is a great person. He’s a great guy. He wants the best for me and whatever decision I make. I like him a lot for that because he cares.”

Johnson also said he loves the rest of Notre Dame's staff and the campus, but that Arizona was his home "for now."

The 5'10", 185-pounder is ranked as the No. 2 athlete and No. 78 overall prospect in the country.

4-star LB to visit Notre Dame
2018 four-star linebacker Dallas Gant (Toledo, OH) received an offer from the Irish this summer, and plans to visit South Bend this fall to watch the Irish take on Michigan State.

Notre Dame is one of the favorites to land him, but he is also considering Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State. The 6'3", 200-pounder is ranked as the No. 1 outside linebacker and No. 43 overall prospect in the country.
