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 (3-0) will host the Whitmer Panthers (1-2) tonight at Central Catholic High School.
Kizer will lead an Irish offense, that's averaging over 30 points-per-game, into this contest and the Irish quarterback commit should have a big night against the Panther defense that's been shaky at best.
Last season, Whitmer destroyed Central Catholic, 42-0.
Justin Brent - Speedway (Indianapolis, Ind.)
The Speedway Sparkplugs (2-2) will look to get back in the win column tonight when they travel to face Monrovia (2-2).
Brent has already rushed for 598 yards in four contests (149.5 yards per game) with 17 touchdowns and I look for him to put up some big numbers tonight against a Bulldog defense that surrenders approximate 30 points a game.
Last season, Speedway defeated Monrovia, 28-6.
Corey Holmes - St. Thomas Aquinas (Pembroke Pines, Fla.)
St. Thomas Aquinas (2-0) will host Miramar (3-0) at St. Thomas Aquinas in a battle of unbeatens.
This will be the third game in a row for Aquinas against an extremely tough team and that's the way the Raiders like it.
Miramar will be led on offense by a Division I quarterback prospect, Nick Jeanty, who has the Patriots offense averaging around 42 points-per game.
On defense Miramar (only allowing seven points-per-game) will be led by three star defensive back Andre Godfrey.
Aquinas, which is loaded on both sides of the ball with Division I prospects, comes into the contest averaging 32 points-per-contest on offense and only surrendering eight points on defense.
Last year, St. Thomas Aquinas fell to Miramar, 27-24.
Nic Weishar - Marist (Midlothian, Ill.)
The Marist Red Hawks (2-1) will battle St. Patrick (1-2) on Saturday in Chicago.
Marist has been on a roll averaging over 41 points-per-game and it could get ugly quick as they go up against the Shamrock defense that's surrendering close to 30 points-per-contest.
Weishar could be in for a very big night.
Last season, Marist dismantled Saint Patrick, 45-21.
Alex Bars- Montgomery Bell Academy (Nashville, Tenn.)
Montgomery Bell Academy (4-0) will look to remain undefeated when they host Brentwood Academy (2-2) tonight.
The Big Red offense,led by the blocking of Bars, is averaging over 36 points-per-game.
Last year,Montgomery Bell Academy lost to Brentwood Academy, 24-6.
Jimmy Byrne - St. Ignatius (Cleveland, Ohio)
St. Ignatius (2-1) will travel to Pennsylvania this Saturday to face the McDowell Trojans (2-1).
Last season, Ignatius defeated McDowell, 34-10.
Sam Mustipher - Good Counsel (Olney, Md.)
Good Counsel (3-1) will host Gonzaga (2-2) tonight for homecoming.
Mustipher will look to help Good Counsel’s offensive line pave the way for against a Gonzaga defense that surrenders over 26 points-per-game.
Last season, Good Counsel crushed Gonzaga, 45-24.
Quenton Nelson - Red Bank Catholic (Holmdel, N.J.)
Red Bank Catholic (1-0) will hit the road Saturday to take on Manasquan (1-0).
Last year, Red Bank Catholic won a close one over Manasquan, 10-0.
Grant Blankenship - The Colony (Texas)
Blankenship and the Cougars (3-0) will return to action on September 27th when they host Liberty (0-3).
Last season, The Colony beat Liberty, 34-13.
Matt Dickerson - Junipero Serra (San Mateo, Calif.)
The Junipero Serra Padres (0-1) are back in action tonight when they play Encinal (1-0) at Willie Stargell Field in Alameda.
Last season, Serra manhandled Encinal, 56-7.
Jay Hayes - Poly Prep (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Hayes and the Blue Devils (2-0) will travel to Cornell University on Saturday to do battle with Canada Prep Football Academy (1-1).
Poly Prep will have their hands full trying to shut down the Canada offense which scores over 43 points-per-game, but the problem for Canada is that their defense is also surrendering 40 points-per-contest themselves.
Advantage, Poly Prep.
These teams didn't play each other last season.
Andrew Trumbetti - Northern Valley Regional (Demarest, N.J.)
Northern Valley Regional (1-0) will host the Teaneck Highwaymen (0-1) tonight.
Last year, Northern Valley Regional defeated Teaneck, 34-14.
Jonathan Bonner - Parkway Central (Mo.)
Parkway Central (3-0) will battle Parkway West (0-3) tonight at Parkway Central High School.
Seeing that Parkway Central defeated Ladue Horton Watkins earlier this season, 41-10, and Ladue Horton Watkins just destroyed Parkway West a couple weeks ago, 70-0.....uhhhh yeah, this is probably going to be pretty ugly.
Last season, Parkway Central defeated Parkway West, 43-6.
Greer Martini- Woodberry Forest (Va.)
Woodberry Forest (1-1) will host Paul VI (0-4) this Saturday at Woodberry Forest High School.
These teams didn’t play each other last season.
Richard Yeargin III - University (Hollywood, Fla.)
University (3-0) will look to remain undefeated tonight when they host Somerset Academy (1-2).
University has been a well-oiled machine in all facets of the game thus far this season. On offense they’re averaging over 47 points-per-game and on defense they are only giving up around 13 points-per-contest.
These teams didn’t play each other last season.
Tyler Newsome - Carrollton (Ga.)
The Carrollton Trojans (3-0) will be back in action on September 27th when they host the Columbus Blue Devils (0-2).
Last season, Carrollton blanked Columbus, 66-0.
