The numbers are the numbers
We may start to see the first commitments of the 2022 recruiting cycle for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish fairly soon. While the focus right now (in July) is certainly on the 2021 class, we also want to see how that 2021 class affects 2022 and beyond.
This chart should give you a better feel for how the Notre Dame football recruiting effort will manage its numbers moving forward in the 2022 cycle. Unlike a lot of charts similar to this, the players are categorized by their academic year. An asterisk denotes that the player is eligible for a 5th year.
While a handful of these players may not be expected to return to Notre Dame in 2022, they may still be on this chart until official word is given that they are headed elsewhere.
