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.

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.
