4-Star OL John Dirksen Commits To Notre Dame

Four-star offensive tackle John Dirksen has committed to Notre Dame to continue his football career, per 247Sports.

According to 247Sports, 4-star recruit John Dirksen has officially committed to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive tackle out of Marion Local High School (Oh.) had competing offers from Northwestern, Iowa State, Michigan State, Kentucky and Vanderbilt. He apparently made the commitment this weekend during an unofficial visit to South Bend. The lineman was offered on January 31, and the Notre Dame staff has apparently been pushing hard for him ever since.

Dirksen is the No. 23 ranked player in the nation at the offensive tackle position, per 247Sports.

With Dirksen's commitment, the Fighting Irish boast a pretty incredible 2018 recruiting class that features eight four-stars and four three-stars. Pretty impressive, considering it is only March. Notre Dame currently has the No. 3 2018 recruiting class in the nation, behind only Miami and Penn State.
