We are into the summer recruiting session and the Irish continue to push an envelope that has not been seen often. Marcus Freeman has completely changed the recruiting philosophy, going after players that former Notre Dame coaches never even thought would be options.
On Tuesday evening, Massachusetts 2023 athlete Ronan Hanafin tweeted out a few pictures of his official visit along with tagging Freeman, offensive coordinator Tommy Rees, wide receiver coach Chansi Stuckey, tight end coach gerad parker, special teams coordinator brian mason, on-campus recruiting coordinator Mackenzie Zanow, and graduate assistant Johnny Aylward. The six-foot-three-inch and 206-pound player is most likely being recruited on the offensive side of the ball after seeing who he tagged in his post.
The Irish going after Hanafin is a very positive development due to his current offer list which includes Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State, Michigan and others. Although he is ranked by some outlets as a three-star prospect, that offer list shows that Hanafin might be underrated at the moment.
Hanafin has yet to schedule a date for a verbal commitment, but it might be soon as he has two more official visits to Alabama and Nebraska.
