Yesterday we all got a glimpse at six, possibly seven, future Notre Dame football players in the Under Armour All-American Bowl. Tomorrow the Irish faithful will get a look at three more with the possibility of seeing Notre Dame add another commitment to the class of 2014.

Here’s a quick look at who the Irish have playing and who they may be adding to the #GoldenArmy14 tomorrow.
Richard Yeargin (OLB) – One of the most athletic linebackers to be recruited by Notre Dame in a few years, Yeargin is a great athlete who can cover a lot of ground. It has been rumored that Yeargin was wavering in his commitment to Notre Dame at times, but recent reports have the Florida native 100% solid with the Irish. Yeargin is a perfect fit as an outside linebacker in Notre Dame’s 3-4 defense and will be playing that position for the East team tomorrow. Scout picked Yeargin as the top linebacker for the East squad at practice this week.
Quenton Nelson (OL) – Widely considered Notre Dame’s highest rated recruit in the current class for Notre Dame, Nelson backed up that reputation this week in practice by being named Scout’s top OL from the East squad. Look for Nelson to start tomorrow for the East squad just as Alex Bars did yesterday int he Under Armour game.
Nic Weishar (TE) – The third member of the #GoldenArmy14 that will be playing in tomorrow’s game, Weishar has a solid week in practice and like his future classmates, was named the top player at his position (tight end) for the East squad. Weishar is consider by many to be an elite receiving tight end and will hopefully see some more targets than Tyler Lautua did in yesterday’s Under Armour game since the California native didn’t see a pass come his way.
Will Nyles Morgan join the #GoldenArmy14?
Aside form the trio of currently committed recruits, Notre Dame has one high profile uncommitted recruit who will be making his college decision tomorrow with inside linebacker Nyles Morgan. Morgan, a Chicago area native is one of the elite inside linebackers in the country and will be playing for the West squad. While he might be lining up against Yeargin, Nelson, and Weishar tomorrow, it is pretty widely believed that Morgan will be lining up with them for the next four years.
Last month Notre Dame sent Nyles Morgan one of their popular #PotOfGolds sending the elite prospect 477 pieces of mail all at once – one piece for each of the Notre Dame players to be drafted in the NFL Draft. If Notre Dame adds Morgan, he will complete and impressive haul along the front seven for Notre Dame in the class of 2014.
