This past weekend was critical for a plethora of football programs around the country. Although Notre Dame didn't land any recruits while they visited campus, it has picked up a pair during this week, including the latest of the 2020 class moments ago.

Head coach Brian Kelly picked up a commitment from three-star wide receiver Jay Brunelle. Michigan and Boston College were in pursuit of him, but he ultimately chose Notre Dame.

Brunelle is the No. 138 wide receiver and No. 8 recruit from Massachusetts, per 247Sports. The Fighting Irish had a strong impression of him from his previous trip to South Bend.

Notre Dame has a trio of wide receivers in its 2020 class, which includes five-star recruit Jordan Johnson.

The official announcement from Brunelle took place on Twitter.

Check it out:

Regardless of his ranking, Brunelle should give the Fighting Irish a shifty wideout to rely on for years to come. During his junior season of high school, the St. John's product had 69 receptions for 1,158 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Notre Dame is putting together an impressive 2020 recruiting class. The Fighting Irish have commitments from 15 players, making it the No. 5 ranked class in the entire country.

The only programs that are above Notre Dame in the 247Sports recruiting rankings are Clemson, Alabama, LSU and Georgia.
