Recapping the Irish's recruiting weekend

9/25/2012

Notre Dame had its biggest recruiting weekend of the season over the last few days, and RecruitingNation was there to cover it all. The team caught up with several 2013 and 2014 recruits and got the story from each on how the visit to Notre Dame went.

Here is a one-stop place for all the news to come out of South Bend this weekend:

Official visitors:

Notre Dame added a big commitment when ESPN 150 WR Torii Hunter Jr. joined the 2013 class.

Our Tom Luginbill gives his take on what Hunter's commitment to Notre Dame means, and fellow commit Corey Robinson was pleased to see that another son of a famous pro athlete would also be signing with Notre Dame in February.

Corey Clement, a member of the ESPN 300, is committed to Pittsburgh, but he visited Notre Dame and was impressed by the academics.

Four-star CB L.J. Moore was making his first official visit of the process and said the Notre Dame visit went great.

2014 Unofficial visitors:

OT Blake Bars has ties to both Michigan and Notre Dame.
