Notre Dame entered Brian Kellynew backyard and pulled out a commitment from a crack linebacker. A few things about the Irish should be said about their former head coach, but in this case it’s hard to do otherwise after four-star consensus linebacker Jayden Osberry (University Laboratory School; Baton Rouge, LA) done at Notre Dame on Thursday.
Osberry listed seven finalists in his set, but it likely came down to the Irish and the Tigers, despite Alabama, Michigan and Texas A&M being among those seven.
80th overall in class and 4th outside linebacker, according to the rivals’ website. com, Osberry is considered the 7th player in Louisiana. In June, he focused his official recruiting visits, visiting Auburn, Michigan, Texas A&M University, and Notre Dame.
At 6ft 2in and 210lbs, Osberry is a fast and determined player. Taking notes in my video, these two adjectives are written several times. He aggressively pursues quarterbacks who dare to roll out of the pocket, and while it could burn him out of college if not disciplined, it further emphasizes his determined play.
The Osberry is long enough to wrap around the ball carrier as quickly as his chest touches him. This fast style will apparently require fine tuning in lighting, but that is to be expected from almost all high school linebackers.
21st in the class for an Irishman, Osberry retains the Notre Dame class. ranked first in the country by competing sites.. The state of Alabama and Ohio are in 2nd and 3rd respectively with only 18 recruits each, so the Irish may not stay at the top of the rankings in early December, but simply competing against the best programs in the country should be the main set. Target. (Especially because recruiting rankings can be misleading once a program needs to add an individual to its roster, for example.)
Osberry is the third linebacker in the Notre Dame class. agreed four-star Preston Zinter (Central Catholic High School; Lawrence, Massachusetts) as well as matched four-star Drake Bowen (Andrean H.S.; Merrillville, IN).
After head coach of Ireland Marcus Freeman — defensive coordinator for the vast majority of recruiting cycles for the class of 2022 — has drawn a four-star linebacker with four stars in the current freshman class (although one has already moved to defense), the 2023 trio will add talented depth to the Notre Dame Defense.
By thus accumulating positions in successive classes, programs like Alabama State and Ohio State are developing depth that the rest of the country is jealous of.
