Notre Dame stayed busy on Tuesday.

As June hit and the Irish's returning players returned to campus for summer school, three more recruits — Devin Bush Jr., Luke Farrell and Aaron Hansford — claimed offers from Notre Dame.

Here's an introduction to each player.

Devin Bush Jr. — ILB — Pembroke Pines, Fla.

One of the top linebackers in the country, Bush added Notre Dame to a list of more than 40 offers, including Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami and Oregon. The 5-foot-11, 221-pound linebacker is ranked as a four-star recruit by Rivals and a three-star recruit by 247Sports.

Rivals also lists Bush as the No. 22 player in the state of Florida in the 2016 class, as well as the No. 156 overall prospect. He is ranked as the No. 14 inside linebacker and the No. 58 player in Florida by 247Sports.

Bush's father, Devin Bush Sr., played safety at Florida State and in the NFL.

Luke Farrell — TE — Perry, Ohio

Farrell turned some heads at Notre Dame's Irish Invasion camp last summer, and that inevitably yielded an offer on Tuesday. The 6-6, 235-pound linebacker has also been offered by the likes of Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Alabama and more.

Ranked as a four-star recruit by both Rivals and 247Sports, Farrell caught 43 passes for 730 yards and six touchdowns last season. The Perry High School standout is listed as the No. 6 player in the state of Ohio and the No. 195 overall prospect in the 2016 class by Rivals, as well as the No. 12 tight end nationally and the No. 10 player in Ohio by 247Sports.

But will Farrell end up at Tight End U?

Aaron Hansford — OLB — Washington, D.C.

A speedy 6-2, 210-pound linebacker, Hansford has collected nearly 20 scholarship offers, with Notre Dame being the most recent addition. Georgia, Maryland, Michigan State, Maryland, Ohio State and Penn State are all in the running for Hansford's services.

The St. John's College High School product is ranked as a four-star prospect and the No. 249 overall player in the 2016 class by Rivals. 247Sports, meanwhile, ranks Hansford as a three-star recruit and the No. 31 outside linebacker in the country.
