Five-star recruits Justin Hilliard (No. 13 in the ESPN 300) and Jashon Cornell (No. 16) will be making their college announcements live on ESPN.com at 10 a.m. ET. Tune in to see where these program-changing prospects will end up.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have had a productive past four weeks, landing three defensive tackles and flipping four-star inside linebacker Josh Barajas from Penn State. Throw in a pair of defensive backs, including ESPN 300 cornerback and one-time Michigan pledge Shaun Crawford, and the Irish have filled the majority of needs on defense in 2015.

With that said, there is more for the Fighting Irish to accomplish, and closing out the class is going to be crucial for the future.

Here are five burning recruiting questions for Notre Dame:

The top prospects from all over the Midwest came out to perform at the Columbus NFTC. When you gather that much talent in one place, it’s only natural that a lot of recruiting news will follow.

ESPN 300 linebacker Justin Hilliard was one of five prospects who earned an invitation to The Opening, and Hilliard discussed whether or not he has narrowed his top-five down even further.

He was one of many uncommitted recruits who made news on the day, as did running back Mike Weber, defensive end Jashon Cornell and offensive lineman Matt Burrell.

Those prospects became targets at the camp for some of the committed recruits on hand. One of the main targets was No. 1-ranked running back Damien Harris, who will soon have news of his own.

Coming at you a little bit earlier in the day …
Notre Dame's only pledge for the class of 2015 is a strong one.

RecruitingNation recently released an ESPN 300 for rising junior prospects, and offensive tackle Jerry Tillery (Shreveport, La./Evangel Christian Academy) checks in at No. 205 overall on the list.

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.
