The accolades keep piling up for Notre Dame offensive tackle commit Tommy Kraemer.

Kraemer — a 6-foot-5, 310-pound lineman from Cincinnati — was ranked as the No. 31 overall prospect in the most recent Rivals 100 rankings for the 2016 recruiting class, which was released on Monday. He also earned an invitation to The Opening Finals national camp on Sunday.

The first verbal commit in Notre Dame's 2016 class, Kraemer is listed by Rivals as a four-star prospect and the No. 1 player in the state of Ohio in the 2016 class. Likewise, 247Sports ranks Kraemer as a five-star recruit, the top player in Ohio and the No. 3 offensive tackle prospect nationwide.

Kraemer is one of two Ohio offensive tackles, with Liam Eichenberg being the other, to commit to Notre Dame in the 2016 class.
