This is proving to be a lucky Irish kind of week, as Notre Dame football has landed two major commitments in the past few days.
On Monday, the son of Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher, Chandler (Ariz.) three-star safety Kennedy Urlacher announced his commitment to Notre Dame. Yesterday, the Fighting Irish added another notable member to their 2024 class.
That’s how Charlotte Christian (NC) four stars wide receiver Micah Gilbert announced that he was joining the club.

Gilbert (6-foot-3, 203 pounds) had offers from 20 other schools, including Charlotte, Duke, ECU, Wake Forest, North Carolina and South Carolina. He said Chad Simmons at On3 Notre Dame had everything he was looking for.
“Notre Dame has that pedigree … I love what they’ve done in the past. They have a great reputation on and off the pitch and the visit pushed them to the top. Wherever I went, I had a list of demands. And Notre Dame had everything I was looking for.
According to 247Sports’ rankings, Gilbert is No. 30 among wide receivers in his class, No. 5 overall in the state of North Carolina and No. 199 nationally.
That makes three wide receivers and a total of 14 firm commitments for Notre Dame’s 2024 recruiting class, which ranks fourth in the nation.
