The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have been cleaning up on the recruiting trail over the last week.
First, the Irish got a commitment from 3-star defensive tackle Brandon Tiassum, who is from from Indianapolis, Indiana and attends the Park Tudor School, last weekend. On Wednesday, 3-star defensive end Micah Drew-Treadway of Bolingbrook High School in Bolingbrook, Illinois gave his pledge to the Irish. A day later, 3-star cornerback Nick Coleman of Archbishop Alter High School in Dayton, Ohio, decided to join the Irish. On Friday, 3-star defensive end Elijah Taylor, who attends Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, gave the Irish their 12th commitment in the class of 2015.
On Sunday, the Irish continued their roll when 4-star cornerback/wide receiver Shaun Crawford committed.
“Notre Dame is incredible,” Crawford told Tom Loy of Blue and Gold Illustrated. “The place Is unreal.”
The 5’9.5, 170-pounder is from Lakewood High School and attends St. Edward High School. Crawford could be an excellent player on both offense and defense, playing wide receiver and cornerback, but projects as a defensive back on the next level. He is ranked as the country’s ninth-best cornerback prospect, the sixth-best overall prospect in the state of Ohio and the 104th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ Composite Rankings.
Crawford holds offers from the Arkansas Razorbacks, Cincinnati Bearcats, Florida State Seminoles, Illinois Fighting Illini, Iowa Hawkeyes, Kentucky Wildcats, Miami Hurricanes, Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Northwestern Wildcats, Ohio State Buckeyes, Penn State Nittany Lions, Tennessee Volunteers, West Virginia Mountaineers and Wisconsin Badgers.
