Notre Dame's home opener against Texas on Sept. 5 may be one of the most coveted tickets in college football this season, but D.J. Morgan shouldn't have much trouble finding a seat.

Morgan — a 6-foot-3, 200-pound 2016 safety — announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he will take an official visit for the Irish's season opener. The St. John Bosco standout previously verbally committed, and then de-committed, from Arizona State.

Morgan is ranked by 247 Sports as a three-star recruit, the No. 42 safety in the country and the No. 58 player in the state of California in the 2016 class. Rivals was considerably more generous, tabbing Morgan as a four-star prospect, the No. 22 safety nationally and the No. 47 player in California.

The rising senior, who made 112 tackles with two fumble recoveries in 2014, also took an unofficial visit to South Bend in April. Notre Dame already has verbal commitments from 2016 defensive back prospects Spencer Perry, Jalen Elliott and Julian Love.
