Notre Dame LB Target Junior Tuihalamaka Announces Commitment Date

One of Notre Dame’s top recruiting targets, Niuafe “Junior” Tuihalamaka is announcing his commitment on Saturday according to Greg Biggins of 247Sports. The announcement is coming on the heels of his official visit to Notre Dame this past weekend that went, by all accounts, extremely well for Notre Dame. If the 247Sports Crystal Ball is right, this one looks really good for Notre Dame as well.

At the moment, there are seven predictions placed via the 247Sports Crystal Ball, and all of them point to Notre Dame for the former USC commitment. On top of Notre Dame, Texas is also in the mix. Tuihalamaka visited the Longhorns two weeks ago and reportedly really enjoyed his time in Austin.

Tuihalamaka saw a significant drop in his Rivals rankings in their newly released rankings last week but is still ranked as the #108 overall prospect in the country in the composite rankings on 247.

Following his visit to Notre Dame last weekend, when he part of a star-studded visit list, he posted the following pictures from his time in South Bend.

Ever since Tuihalamaka decommited from USC earlier this year, Notre Dame has been rumored to be his leader and nothing has changed since then. The trip to Austin definitely left a positive impression on him, but by all accounts, this one should end well for Notre Dame fans on Saturday.

Should all go as planned, Junior Tuihalamaka would be the third linebacker in Notre Dame’s class of 2022 along with Joshua Burnham (pictured with him in the tweet above) and Nolan Ziegler – both of whom are also composite 4-star recruits. He would also be the highest-rated player overall according to 247. That title currently belongs to Burnham at #113 overall.

Notre Dame did not pick up any commitments during last weekend’s huge recruiting weekend, but the wheels appear in motion for that to change by this weekend at the latest.

  1. I think this Notredame season like the last 3 years all rests with how good is Notredames offense. In the college football era of today as well as high school football and the nfl the teams that win championships are the teams with good defenses, special teams and great unstoppable 45 to 50 points a game offenses.Lsu and Alabama both had 2 games each where their defenses gave up 41 and ,46, 47 and 48 points and they both went undeafeted. Kelly even said we have to put a Will Fuller and a Michael Floyd on the field at the same time in order to beat Alabama,Clemson,Ohio State. Hopefully Lezy, Keys Austin, Styles,, Colzie can breakout this year. I do believe Coan, Pyme and Buchner will be better than Book. Book was a good qb for Notredame but was limited pushing the ball consistently down field as well as not throwing receivers open seeing the field etc. Not it wasn’t his fault entirely. He didnt havet the explosive receivers along with Reese didnt really scheme up the passing game due to the injuries to Lenzy,Keye and Austin.
