Notre Dame welcomed 14 early enrollee freshmen and one graduate transfer today for the first time. I previewed the offensive recruits earlier today and have a post on the defensive early entrants in the works. Notre Dame gave us a look at the group in the Notre Dame locker room all together for the first time already though.
From left to right that is: Caleb Johnson (OL), Ron Powlus III (QB), Ryan Barnes (CB), Mitchell Evans (TE), Will Schweitzer (DE), Gabriel Rubio (DT), Lorenzo Styles (WR), Devin Aupiu (DE), Rocco Spindler (OG), Philip Riley (CB), Blake Fisher (OT), Jack Coan (QB – grad-transfer), Cane Berrong (TE), Tyler Buchner (QB), and Justin Walters (S).
This is the biggest group of early enrollees Notre Dame has ever accepted in a single year. This was also the first time many of them were able to meet in person given the travel/visit restrictions due to the pandemic. It will be even more important than ever for Notre Dame with their early enrollees given how little some of them were able to even see campus during the recruiting process.
Some of the early enrollees have started sharing some pictures of themselves on campus today as well.

And yet another offensive lineman, Caleb Johnson, seen moving into his dorm.
