Notre Dame snags 4-star 2-for-1 deal


Notre Dame got off to an outstanding start recruiting the 2018 class, scoring a commitment from consensus 5-star quarterback Phil Jurkovec in May and luring in touted running back Markese Stepp earlier this month.

On Sunday, the Fighting Irish’s hot start to recruiting rising juniors got even hotter when they landed a package deal.

Twin brothers Justin and Jayson Ademilola are the latest football prospects to pledge to Notre Dame. The two defensive recruits from Jersey City, N.J., helped bolster an Irish class that is now ranked No. 3 in the country, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Justin, who is a 6-3, 225-pound linebacker, registered 46 tackles, including two sacks, last fall as a sophomore at St. Peter’s Prep. Jayson, who possesses a 6-3, 286-pound frame, is a defensive tackle who racked up 33 tackles, including four sacks, during his sophomore season at the high school level.

Per 247Sports’ rankings, Justin is the No. 171 overall player in the 2017 class, while Jayson is ranked No. 179. Both players are 4-star prospects.
