Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Irish Targeting Four-Star QB

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have turned their attention to four-star 2017 quarterback Dylan McCaffrey (Littleton, CO) after five-star target Hunter Johnson committed to Tennessee. While Notre Dame hasn't offered McCaffrey yet, many expect one to be coming soon.

The 6-5, 200-pounder already has offers from Michigan, Colorado, Duke, Penn State, UCLA, and Washington, though many think he's lock to attend Stanford to play with his brother Christian McCaffrey, who signed in the class of 2014, and where his father, Ed McCaffrey, played in the late-80's and early-90's.

However, Stanford have not offered the younger McCaffrey and have turned their attention to three other prospects, so McCaffrey is hoping that the Irish will offer him a scholarship soon.

"That would be amazing," said McCaffrey. "It's hard not to highly consider a program and school like Notre Dame. It would definitely make me very interested."

Notre Dame offensive coordinator Mike Sanford, who has built a relationship with the McCaffrey family while recruiting Christian and Dylan, has really made an impression on him.

"He has really shown himself to be a great coach. We have known him for a long time now, because he helped recruit my brother [Christian McCaffrey]. I want to go to a school where I can have the best coaches, and my family really likes him."

McCaffrey is ranked as the No. 47 overall player in the country and No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the nation.
