Notre Dame Head Coach Marcus Freeman is stockpiling elite talent for the program. The Fighting Irish landed four-star wide receiver Micah Gilbert, as per The Athletic’s Pete Sampson.
This big signing comes right after Notre Dame secured commitments from four-star wideout Isiah Canion, four-star defensive end Bryce Young (Gilbert’s high school teammate) and three-star safety Kennedy Urlacher, son of Hall of Famer and Chicago Bears legend Brian Urlacher.
The 6-foot-3, Micah Gilbert gives Notre Dame football a solid red-zone target. The Fighting Irish have been able to compile top receivers, since WR coach Chansi Stuckey came aboard last year.
Over the last two years, Gilbert has hauled in 79 receptions for 1,020 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Despite only playing in seven games as a junior, Gilbert still managed to pull in 39 receptions for 486 yards and six touchdowns.
Notre Dame now has a trio of pass catchers committed in the 2024 recruiting class. Gilbert joins Illinois star Cam Williams and Warner Robins athlete Isiah Canion.
Gilbert had offers from North Carolina, Cincinnati, Duke, Michigan, Penn State, South Carolina and Tennessee before eventually picking Notre Dame.
