Photos from five-star running back Richard Young's Notre Dame visit

Notre Dame has had its share of great running backs over the years, but, in recent memory, the Irish haven’t even been close to landing the nation’s biggest running back recruits.

According to 247Sports, Notre Dame has had one five-star running back commit to the Fighting Irish since 2000 (I will not spoil who it was, but you can find out here).

That’s why it was such a big deal for Notre Dame to simply get five-star running back Richard Young of the 2023 recruiting cycle on campus this week. Young, a 5-foot-11, 200-pound running back from Lehigh Acres, Florida, has received more than 50 scholarship offers from big-time programs. Notre Dame joined Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma and Oregon in receiving visits from him this month.

From afar it appears Notre Dame still has a ton of work to do if it is to land Young; Alabama and Georgia seem to be the favorites. Trust me, I’ll be dancing in the streets if Young ends up in blue and gold, but I’m not holding my breath.

I am however excited to see Notre Dame actually get in the chase again with one of these guys. It’s impossible to sign a player, if you aren’t in the chase, and the more chases you’re in, the more likely you are to ultimately sign one.
