Signing day was not even a week ago and Rivals has released it’s first Top 250 list of the year.  I scanned through the list and have listed all of the prospects who have shown any interest in Notre Dame and separated it by position.  I left each prospect in the position Rivals has them listed for now even though a prospect like Will Hill may play defense on the college level.  This is a very early list, but it will be interesting to see how many of these prospects end up signing with Notre Dame next February.

    Looks like you missed one. Irish Illustrated indicates that Sam McGuffie (RB, Texas) received an offer. He is very small, so he might be better listed as an athlete.

    I read where ND offered Sam McDuffie out of Cy Fair HIgh SChool in Cypress, TX. Is he not rated in the top 250.

    Surprisingly, McGuffie isn’t listed in their top 250. His highlight reel is absolutely insane so I can’t imagine why. People have questions about his size and if he has a true position, but I can’t imagine there are 250 better prospects than him this year.
