The No. 1 overall recruit in the 2020 high school football class announced his commitment earlier this week. Five-star defensive end Bryan Bresee is headed to Clemson and he started recruiting the No. 1 quarterback in the class not long after.

While Clemson is the favorite to land the No. 1 quarterback in the class, the Tigers won't land the No. 1 recruit at one position.

According to Matt Freeman, the No. 1 long snapper recruit in the country announced his commitment on Wednesday.

Alex Peitsch is headed to Notre Dame.

Here's the announcement from Freeman.

Peitsch adds to a solid class for Notre Dame this cycle.

The Fighting Irish currently hold the No. 13 class in the 2020 cycle, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings. Their class is led by four-star wide receiver Jordan Johnson - who is the No. 6 player at his position.

Peitsch took to Twitter to make his announcement:

"I am humbled by Coach Kelly's and Coach Polian's confidence in me and with all that being said I am honored to announce that I have committed on scholarship to the University of Notre Dame," he said.

While landing a long snapper isn't a sexy endeavor, it's pivotal to have someone to rely on in key situations. A bad snap at any given time can ruin a game.
