Of course, it is important to note that 265 of the 300 players on the list are uncommitted, and the Irish are competitors for a number of them.
Uncommitted defensive end Jashon Cornell (St. Paul, Minn./Cretin-Derham Hall) is the No. 1 prospect for the 2015 ESPN Junior 300, hailing from the same high school as former Irish receiver Michael Floyd and Notre Dame newcomer James Onwualu.
Texas leads all schools with seven commitments from the list, with Tennesse and South Carolina right behind with four apiece.
Alabama and Florida State have three commitments each, while Oklahoma, Arkansas and Vanderbilt each have two.
