Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Darnell Ewell Commits!

At 6’4 and just a shade under 300 lbs defensive tackle prospect Darnell Ewell is already big enough to start in college football.  What’s scary is he will just be entering his senior season in high school and already possesses the sheer strength to run over and through blockers.

Notre Dame got the elite defensive tackle prospect they have been sorely missing in Ewell.  He is the most highly rated tackle since they signed Eddie Vanderdoes (who transferred to UCLA before ever playing to be close to his “sick grandmother”).  Rivals has Ewell as a top 125 player overall and the 8th rated defensive tackle in the country.  He’s the 16th commitment in the 2017 ND recruiting class which is projected to finish top 5 overall in the nation.

Ewell picked ND over the likes of Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Clemson, Alabama and many others.

  1. MARK BAVARRO II? Forgive me. A Boston Domer (ND’89, ’88 Natty) I’m a homer. But this is great news for my NOTRE DAME FAMILY!

  2. This is a great win in recruiting. Now a flip of Echols from UCLA would give another huge boost for the D-Line. Even without Echols, Ewell has amazing talent that BK & BVG can build a talented line around. Go Irish!
