The final rankings for the 2016 class have been set. 247Sports released its final Top 247 on Wednesday, becoming the last of the four major recruiting sites to release its final top list.

Seven Notre Dame commits made the Top 247. Offensive lineman Tommy Kraemer remained the only five-star recruit as the No. 2 offensive tackle and No. 8 overall in the 2016 class.

Kraemer was joined by six four-star Notre Dame commits on the list: Liam Eichenberg (No. 7 offensive tackle, No. 60 overall), Troy Pride Jr. (No. 7 cornerback, No. 95 overall), Javon McKinley (No. 12 wide receiver, No. 111 overall), Daelin Hayes (No. 10 outside linebacker, No. 132 overall), Khalid Kareem (No. 13 strongside defensive end, No. 182 overall) and Devin Studstill (No. 11 safety, No. 239 overall).

247Sports slates Notre Dame's 22 commitments as the No. 5 recruiting class in the country. The Irish only trail Ohio State, LSU, Florida State and Ole Miss.

All eight of Notre Dame's remaining top targets also made the Top 247: linebacker Ben Davis (No. 13), wide receiver Demetris Robertson (No. 16), defensive back Jordan Fuller (No. 41), linebacker Caleb Kelly (No. 68), linebacker Jeffrey McCulloch (No. 87), wide receiver Damian Alloway (No. 197), wide receiver Nate Johnson (No. 198), linebacker Jonathan Jones (No. 220).
