Notre Dame added a big commitment to its budding recruiting class in 2024, when four-star tight-end Jack Larsen committed to Fighting Irish live on CBS Sports HQ. Larsen, a product of Charlotte Catholic in North Carolina, chose Notre Dame over North Carolina, NC State, Clemson and Michigan.
Listed at 6-foot-3 and 212 pounds, Larsen has just finished his second season at Charlotte Catholic in North Carolina. He ranks as the overall No. 173 player and No. 9 in tight-end, according to industry standard 247Sports Composite Rankings. However, the Top247 rankings are even higher on Larsen’s potential, which places him as the No. 49 overall player and No. 3 tight end in the class.
Larsen’s addition pushes Notre Dame’s recruitment class in 2024 to No. 1 in the country, past Florida State. He joins five-star quarterback CJ Carr, grandson of legendary Michigan coach Lloyd Carr. No. 66 senior defensive lineman Brandon Davis-Swain and winger Owen Wafle are also committed to the 2024 class.
Fighting Irish coach Marcus Freeman has been on fire from a recruitment perspective since Brian Kelly traveled to LSU. Notre Dame has the top overall spot in the Class 2023 rankings with 15 commitments. With Larsen engaged, 17 of the 19 players between Freeman’s two recruitment classes are blue-chip prospects.
