Notre Dame has long been in pursuit of one St. Brown brother. The Irish doubled up Tuesday.

Equanimeous St. Brown remains as the top wide receiver target remaining for the Irish in the 2015 class. With one week left until signing day, head coach Brian Kelly and linebackers coach Bob Elliott made an in-home visit with the St. Brown family on Tuesday night.

While there, the Irish added younger brother Osiris St. Brown to their wish list. The younger St. Brown, a 2017 wide receiver prospect, reported a Notre Dame offer on Twitter.

Very grateful and blessed to have received an offer from Notre Dame #GoIrish#FightingIrish

Notre Dame became the fifth school to offer Osiris St. Brown, joining Illinois, Texas Tech, Utah and Washington State. The 6-foot, 170-pounder caught 19 passes for 359 yards and four touchdowns in his sophomore season at Anaheim (Calif.) Servite. 247Sports slates him as a four-star recruit, the No. 15 wide receiver and No. 74 overall in the 2017 class.

Equanimeous St. Brown seems destined to sign with Notre Dame next Wednesday on signing day. The Notre Dame coaching staff essentially stopped recruiting other 2015 wide receivers in December and made the elder St. Brown its main focus at the position. He made an official visit to Notre Dame in October and followed that up with a trip to Utah in November. Stanford, UCLA and USC have also been in the hunt for Equanimeous St. Brown.

Rivals rates Equanimeous St. Brown as a four-star recruit, the No. 15 wide receiver and No. 144 overall in the 2015 class. 247Sports pegs him as a three-star prospect and No. 55 at wide receiver.

If Equanimeous St. Brown choses Notre Dame, now his younger brother Osiris St. Brown has the option to follow him. Yet another St. Brown brother, Amon-Ra, could also become a coveted recruit after playing as a freshman this past season.

Osiris St. Brown's highlight reel includes the play below in which he hurdles a defender on the way to the end zone.
