Four-star linebacker Jaylon Smith (Fort Wayne, Ind./Bishop Luers) leads the way for the Irish, as the program's newest commit jumped 26 spots, up to No. 20 overall.
Only six other schools currently have more top-300 commits than Notre Dame. LSU also has seven total ESPN 300 commits.
RecruitingNation goes inside the rankings here, with stories and video breakdowns. Jared Shanker has a piece on Smith's recruiting efforts for the rest of Notre Dame's 2013 class, and Corey Long looks at four-star running back Ryan Green (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Petersburg Catholic), an Irish prospect. Both players are among Tom Luginbill's biggest risers.
