Notre Dame added it’s 3rd commitment in less than a week on Thursday with the addition of Ohio cornerback Nick Coleman.
Coleman was just a recent recipient of a Notre Dame offer – an offer that the Dayton native did not take long to act on. Coleman visited Notre Dame this week and decided on his trip to campus that he was ready to end his recruiting becoming the first cornerback in the class of 2015 for Notre Dame in the process.
While Coleman is the first cornerback, he is the third defensive backfield joining safeties Prentice McKinney and Nicco Fertitta. Look for Notre Dame to continue to search for help at corner in this class though after signing just one corner in the class of 2014 – Nick Watkins.
Notre Dame has been rumored to be the odds on favorite for another Ohio cornerback, Shaun Crawford, as well, but there hasn’t been much news on that front recently. Crawford, a one time Michigan commitment, was set to visit Ohio State a few weeks ago, but canceled the trip. Since then however, there hasn’t been any news on that front.
Coleman’s commitment continues a busy week for Notre Dame on the recruiting front. Over the weekend defensive tackle Brandon Tiassum committed to the Irish on a weekend visit. Just yesterday defensive end Micah Dew-Treadway joined Notre Dame’s class of 2015 as well after a midweek visit. All three recent commitments received their Notre Dame offers in the last month.
Notre Dame now has 11 overall commitments in the class of 2015 with the addition of Coleman, Tiassum, and Dew-Treadway in the last week. With Notre Dame set to host the Irish Invasion later this month, that number could very well continue to grow this month.
