Here's what's happening ...
- Class of 2014 outside linebacker Sam Hubbard (Cincinnati/Moeller) decommitted from Notre Dame's lacrosse program and will visit Ohio State this weekend, seeing football in his future , our Brad Bournival writes.
- Bournival spotlights Cleveland St. Ignatius , the school of current Notre Dame commit and current ESPN Watch List OT Jimmy Byrne. (It's also the alma mater of current Irish linebacker Dan Fox.)
- The Notre Dame-USC recruiting battle has shifted to the Midwest , our Jared Shanker writes, as the Trojans got an offer in to Class of 2015 defensive end/outside linebacker Jashon Cornell (St. Paul, Minn./Cretin-Derham Hall) Tuesday just before the Irish. Cornell plans to visit for the April 20 Blue-Gold spring game.
- ESPN Watch List offensive tackle K.C. McDermott (Wellington, Fla./Palm Beach Central) committed Monday to Miami over Notre Dame . His brother Tyler is a recently hired Irish grad assistant. His other brother, Shane, is a junior offensive lineman for the Hurricanes.
- ESPN Watch List running back Nathan Starks (Las Vegas/Bishop Gorman) lists Notre Dame, USC and Oklahoma as some of his early favorites , our Erik McKinney writes.
- Class of 2014 athlete Tommy Mister (Chicago/St. Rita) has Iowa State as his leader , with Western Michigan, Illinois and Notre Dame all tied for third, Shanker writes.
