The High school football season is in full swing and Notre Dame's 2014 verbal commitments are ready to shine this season in their quest to bring home championships in each of their respected schools.
ISD will be updating you each week on where each prospect will be playing and we'll also give you the results of each contest on Monday as the information becomes available.
2014 Notre Dame Verbal Commits
DeShone Kizer- Central Catholic (Toledo, Ohio)
Central Catholic (7-0) will look to remain undefeated tonight when they when they host St. John's Jesuit (2-5) tonight.
Kizer and the Irish's offense come in averaging around 31 points-per-game while their opponents, the Titans,are giving up 37 points-per-game.
Not a good thing for St John's Jesuit, especially since their offense has struggled a bit putting up points.
Last season, Central Catholic buried St. John's Jesuit, 49-21.
Justin Brent - Speedway (Indianapolis, Ind.)
The Speedway Sparkplugs (6-2) are currently on a four-game winning streak and will host Triton Central (6-2) in Indianapolis.
On paper these two look extremely even on both sides of the ball and this should be a great game to watch.
Each team is averaging over 30 points-per-game on offense, while only giving up about 20 on defense.
Last season, Speedway lost to Indianapolis Lutheran, 62-41.
Corey Holmes - St. Thomas Aquinas (Pembroke Pines, Fla.)
St. Thomas Aquinas (5-1) will host Cypress Bay (4-3) in Fort Lauderdale tonight.
Since suffering their only loss four weeks ago, St. Thomas Aquinas has averaged over 61 points-per-game on offense and are only giving up around four points-per-contest on defense since.
Definitely bad news for the Lightning.
Last season, St. Thomas Aquinas thumped Cypress Bay, 43-17.
Nic Weishar - Marist (Midlothian, Ill.)
The Marist Red Hawks (4-3) will face some stiff competition again this week when they host Benoit Academy (6-1).
Once again this should be an extremely fun game to watch.
Both offenses are very high potent coming in scoring over 30 points-per-game, but defense has been a different story where Marist has given up 32 points-per-contest and Benoit Academy only surrendering 11 points-per-game.
Last season, Marist lost to Benoit Academy, 34-24.
Alex Bars- Montgomery Bell Academy (Nashville, Tenn.)
Bars and his teammates (7-1) will have a bye week.
Jimmy Byrne - St. Ignatius (Cleveland, Ohio)
St. Ignatius (4-3) will head to Lakewood to face undefeated St. Edward (6-0) on Saturday.
Ignatius defense will have their hands full trying to stop an Eagle offense that's throwing up close to 50 points-per-game.
Last year, St. Ignatius lost a close one to St. Edward, 20-13.
Sam Mustipher - Good Counsel (Olney, Md.)
Good Counsel (4-4) will host Archbishop Carroll (2-5) this Friday..
It's hard to tell which Good Counsel team will show up on a weekly basis. Will it be the program that pounded undefeated Bishop McNamara, 41-0 or will it be the one that lost, 31-6, to St. John's last week.
With that being said, I would say Good Counsel should get the win here seeing that the Archbishop Carroll offense is only averaging about 13 points-per-game.
Last season, Good Counsel shut out Archbishop Carroll, 48-0.
Quenton Nelson - Red Bank Catholic (Holmdel, N.J.)
Red Bank Catholic (5-0) will look for their fifth win in-a-row when they host Holmdel (1-4-1) tonight.
This'll one will probably get pretty ugly, pretty quick.
Red Bank Catholic has only surrendered 13 points this entire season which isn't good news for a Hornets offense that's only scoring around five points-per-game.
I see a good old-fashioned beat down.
Last year, Red Bank Catholic beat up Holmdel, 43-12.
Grant Blankenship - The Colony (Texas)
Blankenship and the Cougars (7-0) will look to stay undefeated when they travel to face the Prosper Eagles (2-4) tonight.
The Colony's defense has been stout all year and is currently only giving up nine points-per-game. They'll be looking to shut down a pretty good Prosper offense that's scoring around 32 points-per-contest.
Last year, The Colony was pounded by Prosper, 47-21.
Matt Dickerson - Junipero Serra (San Mateo, Calif.)
The Junipero Serra Padres (4-1) will host the Valley Christian Warriors (3-2) on Saturday.
Valley Christian will be a solid test for Serra and will come into the game averaging 27 points-per-game on offense, but their defense could steal the show since is only giving up about 14 points-per-contest.
Serra's stats are just a tad better with their offense scoring around 35 points a game and defense, surrendering only 12 points-per-game.
Last season, Serra barely beat Valley Christian, 38-35
Jay Hayes - Poly Prep (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Hayes and the Blue Devils (6-0) will take their undefeated record on the road to face Valley Forge Military (0-5) this Friday.
This is another contest that's probably going to get really ugly before halftime, especially with Valley Forge Military scoring only seven points-per-game on offense and giving up 40 per game on defense.
Last year, Poly Prep defeated Valley Forge Military, 34-14
Andrew Trumbetti - Northern Valley Regional (Demarest, N.J.)
Northern Valley Regional (1-4) will hope to break their losing streak this Friday when they had the Little Falls to face Passaic Valley (2-3-1).
Both these teams score by 18 points-per-game on offense, but the problem for Northern Valley Regional is that their defense is giving up 30 points-per contest, while Passaic Valley only gives up 14.
Last season, Northern Valley Regional beat Passaic Valley, 21-17.
Jonathan Bonner - Parkway Central (Mo.)
Parkway Central (6-1) will face a tough test on the road tonight against undefeated Kirkwood (6-0).
This should definitely be a great game, especially since Kirkwood will be bringing in an offense that scoring almost 45 points-per-game to go up against a Colt defense that's only giving up six points-per-contest.
Last year, Parkway Central loss to Kirkwood, 28-2.
Greer Martini- Woodberry Forest (Va.)
Woodberry Forest (5-1) will have a bye week.
Richard Yeargin III - University (Hollywood, Fla.)
University (6-0) will head to Belle Glade tonight to face Glades Central (2-3).
University is averaging around 60 points-per-game on offense and their defense is only surrendered around nine points-per-contest.
These teams didn't play each other last year.
Tyler Newsome - Carrollton (Ga.)
The Carrollton Trojans (6-0) will host Shaw (2-4) tonight.
Last season, Carrollton destroyed Shaw, 45-12.
2015 Notre Dame Verbal Commits
Jerry Tillery- Evangel Christian
Evangel Christian (4-1) will be in action this week against Springhill on Friday.
These teams didn't play each other last year.
