Notre Dame finalized its 2012 recruiting class this week when five-star ATH Davonte Neal (Scottsdale, Ariz./Chaparral) decided Tuesday he would play for the Irish. The addition of Neal gives the Irish the No. 9 class in the nation. Here's a recap of that and everything else that happened in a wild week:
- ATH Taquan Mizzell says Notre Dame coaches will offer him a scholarship once they review his academic transcript, our Dave Hooker writes.
- Running back Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic) will visit Notre Dame on March 3, our Jared Shanker writes.
- Notre Dame is among the most recent schools to offer defensive end Tashawn Bower (Somerville, N.J./Immaculata), Hooker writes.
- Neal, the latest Irish addition, is focused on new beginnings, Nick Ruland writes.
- Our Tom Luginbill says Neal is a great fit for the Irish.
