Notre Dame will get one last chance to impress Fort Wayne recruits Austin Mack and Auston Robertson on Friday. Both will make a trip to South Bend to spend time with Irish head coach Brian Kelly.
Mack, a four-star wide receiver, said Kelly invited the two for one last visit before they make their commitment decisions June 7. Both recruits will also visit Michigan on Saturday and compete in The Opening Regional in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday.
Mack, who listed Michigan, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Vanderbilt, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Alabama as his top schools earlier this month, said he will likely release a top four early next week. He said he’s close to making a decision but hasn’t settled on a school yet.
“The decision is going to come down to figuring out which school is the best place for me with my family,” Mack said. “I’m just weighing my options.”
The 6-2, 205-pound receiver caught 69 passes for 1,062 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior for Bishop Luers High School, the alma mater of Irish linebacker Jaylon Smith. 247Sports slates Mack as the No. 25 wide receiver in the country, and Rivals ranks him No. 38.
Robertson, a four-star defensive end, is set to choose from a top three of Michigan State, Notre Dame and Michigan. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound prospect recorded 74 tackles and 10.5 sacks in his junior season at Wayne High School. 247Sports slates Robertson as the No. 7 weakside defensive end in the 2016 class. Rivals ranks him ninth at the position.
