Several Irish commits are having outstanding senior seasons and could be due for
a recruiting ranking jump soon For some high school football teams,
the first half of their seasons are already in the rear view mirror. With the second half of those seasons ready to kick off,
it’s time to have a quick appreciation for some of the premier performers in Notre Dame’s 2023 recruiting class.
Some of those recruits could be due for a recruiting ranking bump here in the near future.
Here are several of the players that each major recruiting platform should get ready to elevate in their next ranking updates.
RB/WR DYLAN EDWARDS - Derby (Kan.) High School Edwards has been steadily rising up the recruiting rankings since the summer due
to a combination of past production and the camp circuit performances prior to the season.
In four games thus far, Edwards has rushed for 554 yards and eight touchdowns on just 61 carries.
That 9.1 yard per carry average is actually down substantially from his 12.5 yard per carry average from last season.
Edwards has also taken a kick returner back for a 92 yard touchdown so far, doubling as a dynamic special teamer for Derby as well.
WR TAESHAUN LYONS - Hayward (Calif.) Tennyson All of 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals currently have Lyons pegged as a three-star recruit on each of their rankings.
It’s tough to comprehend the ranking when you pop on the film.
It’s true that the 6-2, 170-pound pass catcher does not play the best competition
in the state of California but Lyons doesn’t just beat his competition, he dominates it.
where Lyons has hauled in 22 receptions for 501 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
In total, he has 833 total yards and seven scores. That is an average of 22.7 yards per reception and 208 total yards per game.
Smooth and explosive, Lyons has every tool to be a special wide receiver on the next level.
DE ARMEL MUKAM - Woodberry Forest (Va.) High School We haven’t seen Mukam nearly at his ceiling up until this point
That is mostly due to the simple fact that we just haven’t seen Mukam on a football field much.
It wasn’t long ago that he was living in Canada, with most of his attention being on playing hockey.
Now in his second season of football action, Mukam has an incredible amount of tools and upside.
there would be no doubt that he wouldn’t be sitting as a consensus three star recruit right no
