Notre Dame is among the Top 8 of talented 2023 linebacker Josiah Trotter


One of the best linebackers in the country, Josiah Trotter, has reduced its list of schools and Notre Dame is among the bottom eight.

Notre Dame had fallen back on Trotter a bit, but recent efforts by head coach Marcus Freeman have brought the Irish back into the mix for the talented linebacker and son of the former NFL linebacker. Jeremy Trotter. There’s still work to be done and the Irish need to get Trotter back on campus in the near future, but getting back into the mix was important.

Listed at 6-2 and 230 pounds, Trotter is ranked 183rd overall in the nation and 7th inside linebacker at ESPN. Rivals rates him as a four-star rookie and he ranks No. 264 overall on the 247Sports composite rankings.

On these six defense commits, the defense ends Keon Keeley and Brenan Vernon, security Peyton Bowen, security Adon Shuler, cornerback Justyn Rhet as well as linebacker Drayk Bowen all sit among the consensus top 100 rookies of the 2023 cycle.
