Notre Dame Football Recruiting: 4-Star CB Philip Riley flips commitment back to Irish from USC

On Monday night, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish got some fantastic news for its 2021 recruiting class. 4-Star Philip Riley decommited from the USC Trojans and gave his commitment to Notre Dame — again.

The 6’0” 195 pounder from Valrico Florida originally committed Notre Dame on May 5th, but just four months later he decommitted — only to give his pledge to Southern Cal just a few days later.

Notre Dame cornerbacks coach Mike Mickens never relented, and Riley stayed in contact with the Irish.
