Elite WR Ryan Wingo recaps Notre Dame’s latest recruiting visit


Notre Dame welcomed one of the nation’s top wide receivers yesterday when St. Louis University (Mo.) star Ryan Wingo made his third trip to campus and his second this summer. The five-star receiver came away delighted with the visit, and his connection with Notre Dame continues to grow.

Relationships are a big thing for Wingo, who is described by his coaches as a “selfless” and “infectious” young man. Wingo had the opportunity to build those relationships with the coaches during the visit. While the BBQ activities, photo op and tour were enough to make it a great trip, it was this one-on-one time that stood out the most.

“The two coach (song) stuckey and trainer (Mark) Free man are genuine people who care a lot more about you as a person than as a football player,” Wingo said. “We spent all our time talking about life and very little talking about recruiting. It was a really unique atmosphere.

“Authentic” is a word that comes up often to describe Notre Dame’s current staff. It became a constant theme across the rookie board.

The staff also had another big pitch on campus, seeing the quarterback commit JC Carr returning to campus once more. Being able to meet Carr was important to Wingo, who greatly appreciates that the Irish already have their signal caller in the 2024 class.

“It’s important who will be the quarterback,” he said. “As a wide receiver, you want to know who’s going to throw the ball to you.”

Speaking of quarterbacks, Wingo was accompanied by his teammate Mark sansone, which is his caller in high school. Having Sansone with him for the visit turned out to be a big deal. The good friends were lucky enough to take it all together.

“It was so cool for him to be able to visit Marco,” a source close to Wingo said. “They’ve known each other their whole lives, so it was a cool experience for them to have together.”

One thing is certain, there is a substantial and legitimate interest between Wingo and Notre Dame.

On Saturday, Wingo will travel to Miami. This is the only other visit he has planned at the moment. Notre Dame will work to bring Wingo back to campus in the fall for a game day visit.

In ten games as a sophomore, Wingo recorded 32 receptions for 636 yards and nine touchdowns, averaging 19.9 yards per reception. He was also a big game threat as a rusher, rushing for 214 yards and four scores on just 18 carries. It was good for 11.9 yards per carry. Wingo also averaged 35.5 yards per kick return and 13.7 on punts, while also serving as the team’s lead punter and averaged 41.8 yards per boot.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound wide receiver is a consensus top 25 rookie on all major recruiting platforms. Rivals lists him as the No. 6 overall player and No. 1 wide receiver in the 2024 recruiting class.
